The difference in this one was that one team had John Tillman and the other one didn't.
Mustangs managed to keep it close early on, trailing 15-13 after a period, and 37-32 at the half. Frankfort tried to make short work of the Stangs with 2:20 to play in the half, on top 35-22 when the Mustangs went on a 10-2 run to narrow the margin to 7 at intermission.
Frankfort continued to build on their halftime advantage as Tillman scored 18 of his game high 30 points in the third and fourth quarters. While the Mustangs held the free-throw shooing advantage 12/15 to 2/3 in the first half, things balanced out in the second half as the Panthers finished the game at 14/18, while the Mustangs only managed two charity tosses in the second half, finishing at 13/17.
Zach Hamberg led the Mustangs with 14 and Bryce Donnelly netted 9. Tillman's performance was complimented by 19 from Juanya Frank who added 19.
Brossart falls to 2-3 on the young season and head to Brooksville for a 10th Region encounter with the Bracken County Polar Bears. Frankfort improves to 3-2.
