THE PRINCESS MARGARET Mustangs.

The Maggie Mustangs junior girls basketball team took advantage of home court to open its season with a 50-45 win in overtime over the Pen High Laker 9s on Thursday.

The Mustangs improved as the game progressed but relied heavily on strong defensive play from Payton Ramage and solid scoring efforts by Cassie Hanon and Vanessa Edis.

The Mustangs have assembled a solid defensive squad that is able to break out in transition quickly.

“Speed and players not afraid to drive to the basket will be the keys to a successful season,” said Mustangs co-coach Sandra Richardson. “The girls look forward to an exciting season with a strong nucleus of returning players and strong addition of Grade 9 players.

The Mustangs goal for the season is to improve their performance from last year and advance to the Okanagan Valley championship.
