After a one-win season a year ago, the biggest shock of Region XIX winter sports so far has probably been Montgomery's men's basketball team going 3-1 over their first four games. There were certainly those who doubted the Mustangs and those who would continue to doubt the Mustangs. The only way that they knew how to silence those doubts was to keep winning. Their next opportunity to do that would be on Tuesday against Lehigh Carbon Community College.
The game, which was the second game in a five game road stretch for the Mustangs, was back-and-forth for most of the first half. Lehigh was able to just pull ahead of Montgomery to take a one-point halftime lead. During halftime, Coach Miller apparently had a very strong effect on his guys, because the team came out on fire in the second half. Even with the halftime deficit and close first half, Montgomery managed to outscore the Cougars by 15 points in the second half en route to an 87-73 win.
The Mustangs had a very balanced attack, but freshman Seth Compas (Wissahickon) was pivotal to the success of the Mustangs. Compas led the team with seven rebounds and contributed 20 points. Ryan Black (FR, Hatboro-Horsham) continued to add three-pointers, making four of seven from beyond the arc and leading the team with 21 points.
Next, the Mustangs travel to Valley Forge Military College on Tuesday to attempt to extend their perfect road record.
