Nathan Rodriguez takes it inside against Lake Mead in The Corral Jan. 7.

NEEDLES — Four Mustangs scored in double digits in The Corral Jan. 7, to keep fans on the edge of their seats as they battled back from an 11-point halftime deficit to beat Lake Mead 58-56 in NIAA 2A South League action.

Tied at 11 at the end of the first quarter the Eagles struck hard in the second stanza to take a 31-20 lead into the locker room. The Mustangs closed the gap to three in the third with the Eagles leading 45-42 at the end of the period; then took the lead, 51-50, with 3:45 left to play.

The Eagles No. 5, D. Bristol, led the evening’s scoring with 19. Dawsen Yeager scored 17 for the Mustangs, Nathan Chavez and Nathan Rodriguez scored a dozen each and Ira Stone added 11 in what Coach J.R. Rodriguez proudly acknowledged as a team effort.

The boys are now 4-0 in NIAA play. They host The Meadows on Jan. 10.
