Lancers pick up win over Mustangs

Modified: Wednesday, Nov 21st, 2012

McKay Blackburn and the rest of the Eastern Wyoming College Lancers had plenty of layups against the Western Wyoming College Mustangs on Friday in Cheyenne. Blackburn had nine points.

CHEYENNE – The Eastern Wyoming College (EWC) Lancers went 1-1 at the Golden Eagle Classic last weekend hosted by Laramie County Community College in Cheyenne.

On Friday, the Lancers defeated the Western Wyoming College (WWC) Mustangs 74-59.

EWC jumped out to a 6-0 lead thanks in part to the Lancers forcing turnovers, resulting in layups and dunks on the offensive end.

The Lancers extended their lead to as many as 12 near the midway point in the first half.

“We had a chance to really bury them early in the game had we kept our intensity on the defensive end,” coach Casey Jones said. “What we do is say, ‘Oh we’ve got this,’ and we back down.”

WWC slowly worked their way back into the game. They cut the EWC lead to six with just under four minutes left in the half.

The Mustangs closed the gap to three by half.
