Burges needed this win to stay in 2nd place in district. Austin needed this to for their last chance at a district win. Early on the Panthers gave a fight to the Mustangs, but the talent difference was just too much.
Four different Mustang players ended up in double digit scoring with Tamara Alexander leading the way at 15 points.
Going into halftime it was a 10 point ball game close enough for the Panthers to try to close the gap in the 3rd quarter but that’s when Burges decided to tighten up on both ends of the court and ran away with the game.
The Mustangs finish their regular season at a mark of 23-7, 13-3 in district. The Mustangs will head into the playoffs as the 2nd seed in District 1-5A.
