5-0: Mustangs edge NSK
ARMSTRONG - The fourth-ranked Newell-Fonda girls had their toughest test since their season opener, but they remain unscathed as they edged North Sentral Kossuth/Armstrong-Ringsted Thursday, 49-34.
"This was another night where we got off to a really slow start," said Newell-Fonda head coach Dick Jungers. "We have to do a better job of getting after teams right from the start and to do a better job of finishing. I was pleased with our defensive effort, but offensively we have to get better with timing and chemistry. North Union played a great game and they really got after us on the defensive end."
Renee Maneman led the Mustangs, going 6-of-17 from the field on her way to 14 points, four rebounds, five assists and our steals. Andrea Christensen had 10 points and five rebounds, Claudia Larsen had seven points and four rebounds, Tayler Lago had four points and five rebounds, Brianna Wells and Jordan Wilken had three apiece, and Taiyler Schrank, Maddi Morenz, Hailey Falline and Marianna Overgaard chipped in with two apiece.
The Mustangs march to 5-0 with the win and will resume play at home Tuesday night against OA-BCIG.
