Mustang Boys Pull Away from Falcons

North Nodaway’s junior high boys broke up a tight game in the fourth quarter, pulling away from St. Gregory’s 21-18. The Falcons, coached by former Northeast Nodaway grad Chris Burns, kept the game close as nobody led in the game by more than three points until the fourth quarter.

Finally, Karson Oberhauser got loose inside to put North Nodaway up for good at 15-14 with 5:20 left in the game. Andrew Blackford drove around a Cody Cline screen to score and then rebounded his own missed free throw and knocked it down for the first two-possession lead by either team. Tyler Burke’s free throws with 45 seconds and a tieup gave the Falcons a chance to tie, but Adam Patton’s 3-point attempt was long and North Nodaway secured the board with 15 seconds left and ran out the clock.

Oberhauser had 12, Blackford had 6, Cody Cline had 2, and Dakota Wray had 1 for the Mustangs.

The girls were outworked in a highly brutal, physical battle as they fell to St. Gregory’s 38-22. Jadon Dobbins nearly singlehandedly kept North Nodaway in the game for much of the second half, getting 13. Alonna Cross had 4, Saylor Brown had 3, and Karissa Oberhauser had 2.
