January has been quite kind to the Sachse Mustangs, as they have now rattled off back-to-back week’s of undefeated play to start 2024. After a pair of big wins over Wylie and North Garland to open the new year, the Mustangs defeated Lakeview and Rowlett last week to move to 6-2 in the district.
That puts them in a three-team tie for second place with Wylie East and Naaman Forest. While Sachse split their games with those two teams during the first half of the district schedule, that was before this recent streak has seen them win their last five contests with district foes.
Against Lakeview, both teams came out of the gate hot, combining for 74 points in the first half. Still, it was the Mustangs who carried that momentum over to the second half, as they tallied 25 points in the third quarter to the Patriots’ 12.
