Mustangs head to Sour Lake to face improved Hawks

SOUR LAKE — Hardin-Jefferson is rested up as the Hawks get ready to play host to the West Orange-Stark Mustangs in their District 21-3A opener at Hawks Stadium Friday night.

The Mustangs (5-0, 1-0) opened defense of their 21-3A crown last week by drubbing Hamshire-Fannett 44-0 while the much-improved Hawks (3-1) had their bye week.

The Hawks will face 21-3A’s leading defense. The Mustangs have allowed just 20 points all season and are giving up just 162.6 yards a game.

The WO-S defense forced Hamshire-Fannett into five turnovers last week and has allowed just seven points all season long in the second half.

The Hawks, who have defeated Splendora, Tarkington and East Chambers and lost to Anahuac, are led by quarterback Jared Gieseke, who has completed 34-of-75 passes for 371 yards and two touchdowns. His favorite two targets are Andrew Martel (13-197-1) and Dylan Vannoy (14-143-1).

Coy Draper (47-158-0) and Gieseke (53-119-4) are H-J’s leading rushers.

WO-S quarterback Jimmy Salter has completed 50-of-91 passes for 606 yards and seven TDs with no interceptions. His favorite weapon in the air is receiver J’Marcus Rhodes, who has 305 yards and five TDs on 17 catches.

Abear Simien (34-185-2), Ar’Tevin McDonald (30-136-1) Salter (42-130-3), John Scott (21-128-1) and Kane Tezeno (23-127-1) lead the Mustang ground game.

The Mustangs will head into their bye week next week while the Hawks take a trip to Orangefield to face the Bobcats.
