Watley quickly cut the lead with a 3-pointer to open the fourth.  Mesquita snakes his way in for a layup to answer and the bulldogs are back up by nine.  The Mustangs would get another surge with a 6-0 run on baskets by Jordan, Campos and Jeremy Determan.  Mesquito moved the lead back to seven and seven seconds later Smothermon would go to the line Ty Jordan goes up in traffic.

The Mountain View Mustangs got a decisive 58-36 victory to eliminate the Sierra Eagles for the 8th grade championships. 

It was a close game up until the second quarter. The period began with the Eagles up 8-7, but the Mustangs came charging back scoring 23 points in that quarter.

I think the key to that is good execution, good passing, and good ball control. Not to mention the fundamentals...and they stayed focus.” 

The Mustangs were up 30-16 at the half and Francisco Sanchez, head coach for Sierra, said he encouraged to focus on getting back in the game one basket at a time.

“I told them we weren’t out of the ball game,” he said. “I told them don’t look at the large deficit we had, we’re going to break it down into two minutes segments. The first two minutes try and cut it down 2-4 points, get it down to single digits by the end of the third and that’ll give us a chance in the third.”

Sierra started playing a bit more aggressive in the fourth and forced more turnovers, aiding in their effort to cut the lead down.

With the their season over, Sanchez said he’s pleased overall, but wishes they could’ve done a bit more during the year. 

“I don’t feel like we lived up to our potential this year,” he said. “That’s maybe my fault because you always want your team to live up to their potential.”

 

The Mustangs go on to play Berrendo this Tuesday, and Clay said the outcome is really up to his team.  

“I’m pretty confident we’re gonna show up to play,” he said. “It’s going to be a matter of how well our guys execute, how well they run their plays, how well they play defense and how well they stick to their fundamentals.”

A.Smutherman led the Mustangs in scoring with 24 points, while A. Campos tallied 11. L. Slayyani led the Eagles in scoring with 11 points, while I. Aldez and A. Garcia both scored six.

RoeThe Berrendo Bulldogs came into Mountain View Middle School as the underdog Tuesday afternoon. They were not deterred by that label and mounted a comeback in the fourth quarter to win the game 27-24 in the first game of the 7th grade championship.

Down 8-17 at the half, the Bulldogs continued to fight despite shooting troubles early in the game. 

 

“At half time I told them the big difference is we’re playing great defense, playing good offense, the biggest difference is I felt we were shooting five baskets to their one. Difference is their’s was going in and ours weren’t. ” Berrendo head coach Mike Guerrero said.

That was certainly the case for the Bulldogs in the first half as many of their possessions resulted in three or more offensive rebounds, and no points. 

The did get some key baskets from Gavin Maloney and Z. Carrillo in the third. The duo combined for seven points in the period in brought their team within three heading into the fourth. 

The fourth quarter was the turning point for the Bulldogs. After trading baskets for the first half of the quarter, Gavin Garcia would knock down a huge three to tie the game. at 22 all. Mountain View’s Keyshawn Thomas would answer with a nifty little post move to give the Mustangs a 24-22 lead. V. Bolanos would knock down a huge triple for Berrendo, giving them the first lead of the entire game, and seemingly getting the Bulldogs out of a funk they’ve been facing all season.

Our big guys finally got some baskets underneath the basket and were being a little bit more physical.”

A few free throws from Maloney would ice the game. Guerrero said he was pleased to see his team play with such heart and never give up.

 

“...I was very proud of my kids. They never gave up,” he said. “We’ve been kind of inconsistent all year and I felt like they really wanted this game tonight. No one gave us a chance. [We were]The dark horse, and we pulled through and won it.  

 

They go to Sierra Thursday Feb. 28 where Guerrero said a powerhouse awaits them. He’s hoping his kids will take the same mindset and heart into that game, as they had in Tuesday’s game. 

“I’ve told them all year, we’ve yet to see their best basketball,” he said. “Tonight it all came down to who wanted it more. We knew Mountain View, Sierra and us, it was going to be a battle all year long. Hopefully one of us will sneak up on Mesa. Mesa is hands down the best seventh grade team, so hopefully one of us can sneak up on them and go from there.
