KISMET — The Southwestern Heights Lady Mustangs forced 41 turnovers  
on Friday night to win 70-15 against the Hugoton Lady Eagles with 16  
points from Deni Jacobs and 14 points from Holly Brown.
The Lady Mustangs took advantage of the Hugoton Eagles during the  
first half of the game at Southwestern Heights. With the Lady  
Mustangs allowing only two points to the Lady Eagles during the first  
quarter, the Eagles struggled to get the ball past the half-court line.
The press from the Lady Mustangs was ferocious – not just one player,  
but every Mustang got their hands in the way to deflect passes  
causing numerous steals.
Britny Butler, Vivian Olvera, and Holly Brown led with seven steals  
apiece.
The Lady Mustangs let up some during the second quarter bringing the  
score to 41-7 at halftime.
The third quarter produced the same results as the Mustangs defense  
kept forcing steals even without a press.
“They were anxious to play since they hadn’t played since the 19th,”  
Lady Mustangs coach Barry Mellen said,
Even with multiple substitutions from the Lady Mustangs during the  
fourth quarter, the Eagles could not catch a break.
The Mustangs ground in their heels until the end with a 70-15 win.
