  • Brossart’s Mustangs edge Thorobreds

    A game that was in reach at the three minute mark got away from the Thorobreds Friday night as they dropped a hard-fought game to the 19-1 Bishop Brossart Mustangs, 60-49, in Alexandria.
    The loss stopped the Breds four-game winning streak and left them with a 9-10 record for the season.  
    The evening started well for Harrison County as the freshman team won their game by a 15-point margin, 48-33. Brossart took the junior varsity, 40-32, in a game that was close throughout. The schools were even for the night heading into the varsity tussle.

    I’ve never been a big fan of cold weather. I could use stronger words, such as hate and detest, or loathe and abhor, but you already get my “drift.”
