GOLDSTON — Margaret Pollard put on a dominating performance here on Friday night in Goldston at J.S. Waters en route to a convincing 67-32 victory over Horton.

The Mustangs added to its regular season crown by rolling to a 17-7 advantage after one period of play and never looking back in garnering the win.

Pollard took the early lead behind six points from Jarin Stevenson, five from Noah Hyman, and three more from Noah Lewis.

Gus Fisher swished a trey for the Wildcats in the opening quarter.

In the second, Pollard put on an offensive show, exploding for 22 points behind a balanced attack which saw four players score. Evan Dean led the way with 10 points in the period while Zach Barnes and Stevenson chipped in five apiece, and Cameron Stevenson a basket.

Ashton Elliot had five for the Wildcats in the second, but it wasn’t enough to keep Horton from falling to a 39-15 deficit.

The offensive show continued for the Mustangs in the third as six players scratched en route to a 20-8 run and ultimately a 59-23 lead. Lewis had five, including a trey, while Jarin Stevenson added five, Dean four, Hudson Bennett three, Gus Ritchey a basket, and Luiz Ziemke a free throw.

Jake Leighton had four points for the Wildcats in the third while Elliot and Nathan McWilliams added a basket apiece.

Elliot and Fisher canned a trey each in the fourth for Horton while Isaiah Blair and Seth Davis added a bucket each to send the Wildcats to a 9-8 advantage in the period.

Lewis had four for Pollard, however, and Ziemke and Nathan Avodo a basket each as the victors cruised to the easy 67-32 win.

Jarin Stevenson led the Pollard scoring with 16 points while Dean added 14, Lewis 13, Barnes seven, and Hyman five.

Horton was paced by 12 points from Elliot while Leighton and Fisher chipped in six each.
