Game Recap: Mustangs Edge Cougars, 74-72, For 1st Win

The Montgomery County Community College Mustangs men's basketball team earned its first win of the season Tuesday night, edging Lehigh Carbon Community College, 74-72.

The Cougars missed on a shot at the buzzer which would have tied the game.

"We were off our game all night, but I'm proud of the way the guys competed for 40 minutes," said Head Men's Basketball coach Denny Surovec. "We could have packed it in when Lehigh Carbon took the lead late in the game, but the guys gutted it out."

The Mustangs led 36-29 at the half and extended their lead to as many as 9 in the second half before the Cougars staged a late rally.

Jared Stanley and Chris Uhrich paced the offensive attack with 13 and 10 points, respectively. Uhrich added 8 rebounds. Matt Krewson chipped in 9 poits, all of which came in the second half, along with 3 steals. Tyreek Magruder scored 8 points, while Kevin Woods added 7 points and 6 assists. Ryan Casper and Trevino Hall each collected 5 rebounds. Hall added 4 steals.

The Mustangs men's basketball team hosts Atlantic Cape Community College in the home opener Thursday at 8 pm.
