Mustangs hoop teams pick up wins

Mustangs senior basketball teams pick up wins against Summerland and George Elliot

Shinaaz Johal and Reiley Terbasket had big performances for  the Princess Margaret Mustangs basketball team, opening the season with a 75-49 victory over the Summerland Rockets Wednesday night.

Johal led the Mustangs at both ends with 26 points and 13 boards while Terbasket knocked down 20 points, including three from beyond the arc to go along with 10 assists.  Caitlyn Neary also had a strong performance with 12 points, including a buzzer-beating three that gave the Mustangs a much needed lift going into half-time.

The Rockets were led by Jillian Henrichsen with 10 points while Jaedyn Foley chipped in eight.

With only five seniors in the lineup, the Mustangs were forced to bring up three Grade 9s from the junior team who more than held their own. Cassie Hannon led the way with eight points, while Harleen Bansoota knocked down six and Manreet Grewal chipped in two.

Klar drains Coyotes

Gurk Klar led the Mustangs to a 82-58 win over the George Elliot Coyotes with a 23-point performance.

The victory pushes the Mustangs to 2-0 in the South-Central AA senior boys basketball league. Jacob Winstone added 15 points to their total while Prab Chahal returned from an injury to score 12 points.

After a slow first half, with the Mustangs only leading by four, they raced to a 20-4 run in the late third and early fourth quarter to put the game out of reach. Coaches Raj Dhillon and Andrew Sexton were pleased with the way the team handled new defensive and press systems and how players are accepting their roles.

The team is playing in the Penticton Christmas Classic that ends today.
