CALDWELL -- The Mumford Mustangs continue to enjoy the schools best boys' basketball season ever following a 104-67 win over Milano in the area round of the UIL Class A basketball playoffs.
Mumford got 26 points from Eric Corona and 19 from Matt Williams as they captured an Area Championship for the first time in school history.
The Mustangs jumped out to a 20-11 lead in the first quarter at Caldwell's Hornet Gym, only to watch the Eagles cut the lead to 5 on a Sam Walker jumper.
Walker would have 13 points in a losing effort for Milano.
Mumford will face either Normangee or Louise in the regional quarterfinals next Wednesday night. The Hornets and Panthers will decide the area championship Friday night over in Pflugerville.
