The Mustangs came out in the second half and the shots just would not fall. The Eagles went on a 16 to 3 run in the third quarter running the score up on the Mustangs to a 39 to 17 lead. The fourth quarter ended in the same outcome with the Eagles outscoring the Mustangs 10 to 3, ending the game with a loss to the Mustangs: 49 to 20.
Junior Catarino Perez had this to say about the game, "We just got to put the game behind us and move forward. We can't dwell on this game. We have to focus on playing Alma."
