The Marble Falls basketball teams slipped further down the district rankings with losses against the Rouse Raiders on Tuesday night.

Lady Mustangs

The Lady Mustangs (8-17, 2-6 in district) slipped to fifth place in the district after their 53-45 loss on the road. Raiders offensive rebounds prevented Marble Falls from keeping the game within reach in the fourth quarter.

Head coach John Berkman said the rebounding woes were persistent through the game, but the fourth quarter is where the Mustangs really felt the effects.

“If we had been better rebounding the whole game, we could've limited their scoring opportunities and had a favorable margin going into the fourth,” he said. “If you don't take care of those things early, they tend to hang around and get you in the end.”

The Marble Falls boys' soccer team was able to control possession to secure a 4-2 victory over the East View Patriots on a windy Tuesday night.

The Mustangs (9-0-4) continued their difficult non-district schedule against the number four ranked team in 5A just a week away from the beginning of district play. Head coach Rick Hoover said the challenging schedule was planned to prepare the players for a tough district.

“We tried to schedule our pre-district games as strong as we could make it,” Hoover said. “You don't know how the [players] will respond.”

The Mustangs seem to have responded well. Despite playing several 6A schools and high-ranking 5A schools, the Mustangs are one game away from completing an undefeated non-district schedule.
