The goal is always to make the big show. After a tough draw last year in which Mustang had to play in a Regional at Owasso, this year is much more plausible for the Broncos to advance.

The Broncos did not host a Regional but it might be the next best thing for MHS. Mustang will go to Stillwater on Friday and be up against Bishop Kelley, Stillwater, and Enid, all of which will be vying for one spot in the State Tournament.

“We have a very winnable Regional,” Mustang coach Scott Selby said. “We just have to go play now.”

Bishop Kelley comes into the tournament with an 11-17 record overall. The Comets have split with Stillwater in their district series 1-1 after BK won the first meeting 2-1 and lost the second meeting 7-5.

Enid enters the Regional Tournament with a 9-23 record. The Plainsmen have a 0-3 record against the Broncos. Mustang has taken down Enid 16-8, 4-2, and 5-0. The Broncos’ 16-8 win was in Stillwater at the Stillwater Tournament. The 4-2 and 5-0 wins were on Enid’s home field.

The host of the tournament, Stillwater finished the regular season at 16-12. The Pioneers have met up with Mustang just once this year and the Broncos came away with a 3-0 victory on Stillwater’s field during the Stillwater Tournament.

Mustang has beaten two of the teams in the Regional on same field that the tournament will be played on. With that in their review mirrors Mustang will aim at not becoming overconfident.

“I don’t think we’ll get overconfident by no means. We’ve seen how that works,” Selby said.

Mustang will begin the Regional Tournament on Friday at 1 p.m. against Bishop Kelley. The Broncos will play at 3 p.m. with a win or 5 p.m. with a loss on Friday. Stillwater and Enid will play at 11 a.m. on Friday.
