Last night the parking space was scarce at the Parkway South gymnasium. Visitors coming from Manchester Rd. any time past 7:20 were greeted by two “Parking Lot Full” signs before finding an open space, and the vast visiting crowd was ecstatic when the fourth quarter buzzer announced Mustangs’ 50-40 victory over the number one seeded Patriots on their own court.

Guard Chris Lenzen, junior, said beating Parkway South at home wasn’t an easy feat, it took a strong team effort to come out with the win.

“Parkway South is always really good at home because of their fanbase, their impressive senior lineup, and specifically they had the top seed going into last night,” Lenzen said. “So we knew it would be a tough game but we stuck to our game plan and it worked out for the best.”

Lenzen said by shutting down Parkway’s point guard and shutting down their offense, the Patriots were forced to score most of their points in transition.

Guard Mitch Cox, senior, said the win gave a large boost to the team’s ever-increasing energy.

“I felt very confident going into the game [Wednesday night],” Cox said. “We had a great practice beforehand and we played really well against Eureka the game before.”

Cox said he’s excited about Friday’s District Championship game against Lafayette because he’s eager for another chance to help bring home another District title.

After the big victory Wednesday night, Lenzen said he’s eager to face the Lancers.

“I feel like we have a lot more momentum now,” Lenzen said. “We’re just going to stay humble and hopefull bring home another District Championship for our school.”
