Moore ousted by Broncos

(Continued)

CHOCTAW —

The Lions began the final eight minutes in a panic and quickly fell behind by eight points. Mustang’s defense had Moore on its heals.

But it was a Meyer dunk over the entire Lions’ front line that put an exclamation point on the night.

Demarion Love, Jakolby Long, Williams and Meyer combined for 54 of Mustang’s 61 points.

Diontre Cutliff led the Lions with 17 points. Oliver added 11. Powell finished his high school career with 9 points, but was a factor on both ends.

“It always feels good to be the last Moore team standing, “ Powell said. “Going from Southmoore to Moore, I felt it was a risk. But I felt like I had family here. That’s what showed out on the court. It feels great to go out with a bang and with family. But it also hurts at the same time.”

The Lions lose two starters from this year’s team. They will return Wilson and Cutliff along with several other key players in 2015.

“This is my favorite Moore team since I’ve been at Moore, period. Hands down,” Howell said. “They’ve fought, they’ve given their all. They sacrificed time, they sacrificed points. They’re the epitome of a team. No respect coming in, they fought all year. I’m proud.”
