After a monstrous first half that put S-E-M up 53-37, it was the Mustang defense that had to show up to play at home to come out victorious over D6 No.7 Spalding Academy. Show up did they ever.
After a big pass from Jacob Diessner to Klayton Kleffner set the Irish up in first and goal to go trailing by four. They were turned back four different times. The last time being from the inch line by S-E-M.
After the turnover, the Mustangs rode the legs of Carson Rohde the rest of the way to secure the 66-62 win.
