Mustangs Take on
Rams Tonight in Search of District
By Lasso Staff (October 25, 2001)
Tonight’s game against the Strasburg Rams away is "crucial" for the George Mason Mustangs’ post-season chances said Mason head coach Chris Madison.
"Madison County lost to Clark County 44-38 last Tuesday and this opens the door for us," said Madison. The Mustangs and Mountaineers are tied for first place in the Bull Run District with 7-2 records.
If the Mustangs win tonight and are victorious Tuesday at home against Brentsville and at Clarke County Thursday, then they might find themselves in a one-game playoff against Madison County before the district tournament. The winner of that game would get a bye for the tournament’s first round, would be the regular season champion, and would be guaranteed a trip to the regional tournament.
Last Monday night, the Mustangs,
looking to sharpen their edge against powerhouse and AA Liberty, instead
found themselves blown out 71-43. Senior Adrienne Thompson had 17 points
in that loss.
