Mountain House Girls Varsity defeated the Ceres Bulldogs 41-35 to take sole possession of 2nd place in the Western Athletic Conference. Both teams came in tied at 8-4 and the six point victory brings the Mustangs within one game of 1st Place Los Banos High.
Senior co-captain Lyric Moore paced the Mustangs with 11 points, but it was senior Katelyn Larson’s 8 points and defensive energy that stood out as the Mustangs struggled to pull away. The Ceres Bulldogs played with heart as 3 of their players fouled out in the 4th quarter. In the end, the Mustangs made a few more plays, iced by Lyric Moore’s two free throws with 40 seconds left.
The Mustangs now play on Thursday 2/13/2020 Senior Night vs. the Pacheco Panthers with the WAC League Title on the line. With a victory, the Mustangs earn 2nd place outright and the possibility of a 1st place tie with Los Banos High. Senior Night festivities begin immediately after the JV game finishes, with gametime schedule at 7:30 PM.
