The Edgewood freshmen won the last 21 minutes of their 24 minute game to open the WIC tournament. Unfortunately, in those first 3 minutes they fell behind 12 – 0 and so they lost to Owen Valley 46 -35. The undersized Mustangs battled the much taller Patriots the entire game, but just couldn’t overcome their slow start.
A trio of Edgewood players — Brayden Robinson, Cayden Howard, and Nehemiah Yazzie–scored 10 points each, and Aiden Georges added 5 points to complete the scoring.
Howard, Robinson and Yazzie also led the Mustangs’ rebounding effort, pulling down 6, 4, and 4 respectively.
The Freshmen Mustangs will finish their season on the road, with games on Wednesday at Monrovia and Thursday at Bloomfield.
