Mustang teams split at North Polk
ALLEMAN — Prairie City-Monroe’s boys continued their hot start to the basketball season with a truly dominating win over North Polk’s Comets to open 2014. The Mustangs did not allow the host Comets to score in double figures in any of the four quarter on their way to a 7-0 record.
PCM held North Polk to just 11 field goals made and four free throw attempts, coming away with a 68-29 victory on the road.
Senior Dillon Bruxvoort’s 19 points led the way for the Mustangs. Zach Uhlenhopp led the team with seven rebounds.
The PCM girls did not get off to the same hot start to the new year as their male counterparts. The Mustang girls continue to struggle away from home, moving to 0-4 on the road and 5-4 overall after a 54-47 loss to the Comets.
North Polk’s Miranda Murphy torched the Mustangs inside. Her 28 points led all scorers and propelled a third-quarter surge that gave the game to the Comets. Megan Murphy also chipped in with 19 points, most of her work coming from the outside.
Both teams take on Saydel Tuesday night.
