Mount Pleasant broke what had been a close game wide open in the second half, as the Mustangs handed the Pella High boys basketball team a season-opening 66-41 loss Saturday.

The Little Dutch trailed 29-27 at halftime, but Mount Pleasant’s size and athleticism created problems for Pella in the second half. Jace Ver Steeg was the high scorer for the Little Dutch with 11 points.

Pella opens Little Hawkeye Conference play tomorrow night at Norwalk.
