  1. Did anyone see the Maranatha vs W Lutheran game friday night? Was it as close as the score? What did Maranatha do wrong or W Lutheran right?

  2. I was there and it wasn't one of MCA's better games. The officiating favored West Lutheran. The Mustangs were down by 6 at the half and down by as many as 9 in the second half. MCA put together a 14-3 run after being down 9 to stay ahead. It was very hard for the Warriors to keep David Hanson down. West Lutheran shot very well inside and outside and closed within 2 points with a minute left. But when MCA turned up the pressure on defense, they could not do anything after that point.
