NIXON -- Needing wins to help their chances of making the playoffs, the Mustang and Lady Mustang basketball teams of Nixon-Smiley played host to the teams from Poth last Friday night. Unfortunately for those in Mustang Country, the visiting teams skipped town with the wins.

The Poth Pirettes are sitting in the No. 2 spot in the district, but Nixon-Smiley is right on the bubble. The Lady Mustangs were hoping for a big win, but couldn’t find a way to shut down the Pirettes’ Devon Dylla and Justine Quintanilla. The duo combined for 26 points and led Poth to a 52-27 victory.

Nixon-Smiley came out strong in the first period of play, and hung 11 points on the board, but the Pirettes kept pace, scoring 15 of their own to carry the lead into the second period. The Pirettes flexed a bit of muscle in the second, outscoring the Lady Mustangs 10-4, and securing a 25-15 advantage at the break.

The gap began to grow in the third period, as Poth scored 16 points while holding Nixon-Smiley to just 6. The Lady Mustangs managed just another 6 in the final period, as Poth tacked on 11 en route to the 52-27 victory.

Dylla led Poth and all scorers with 13 points, followed by Quintanilla with 12. Dominique DeHoyos was good for 8 points, and Taylor Lipscomb tacked on 7 more.

Megan Guerra and Tyhana Mejia led the Lady Mustang effort with 6 points each, followed by Alena Alvarez, Savannah Martinez, and Brooke Hester with 4 points each. Celeste Arriaga scored 3.

With the girls game concluded, the boys took to the court, and fans were treated to an exciting game that was truly a story of two halves.

The Mustangs looked strong in the early minutes of the contest, and Nixon-Smiley held a 16-8 lead after the first eight-minute session. The Mustangs continued to apply pressure in the second period, and once again outscored the visiting Pirates, this time by a measure of 15-9, giving Nixon-Smiley a 31-17 lead at halftime.

The game was completely different in the second half, though, as Kyler Felux took over for Poth. The Pirates not only obliterated the Mustang lead by hanging 27 points on the board, they actually took the lead at 44-41 after holding the Mustangs to just 10 points. Nixon-Smiley could manage only another 10 points in the final period, as Poth tacked on another 18 to steal a 62-51 win from the Mustangs.

Felux was phenomenal with 31 points for the Pirates, followed by Dylan Sefcik and Brock Nelson with 8 points each. Jerrek Hosek scored 6 points, and Spencer Flieller added 5 points.

Sophomore Sam Moore led the Mustangs with 17 points in the game, followed by Garrett Earlywine and Nick Pena with 12 points each.
