Mustangs post another shut out, 54-0, over Bobcats

WEST ORANGE — Putting together their best overall game of the season, the sixth-ranked West Orange-Stark Mustangs blew past Orange County rival Orangefield 54-0 in District 21-3A play at Hooks Stadium Friday night.

Defensively, the Mustangs (7-0, 3-0) recorded their 85th shutout in school history and the their fifth of the season as they limited the Bobcats (3-5, 2-2) to 132 yards and five first downs. In t˙ree 21-3A games, the Mustangs have outscored their opponents 147-0.

“Our kids got after it and played their most complete game thus far,” said Mustang coach Cornel Thompson. “Their (Orangefield) offense can be tricky and hard to stop but we’ve been preparing for it for two weeks and it seemed like we were off for a month. The kids responded though. 

Defensively, we were flying to the ball all night and didn’t allow them to breathe. I would’ve never told you we’d have five shutouts at this point but we’ll take it and we’re extremely proud of the kids’ effort.”

Offensively, the Mustangs piled up a season-high 516 yards. Quarterback Jimmy Salter completed 9-of-15 passes for 220 yards and three touchdowns, including two to receiver J’Marcus Rhodes. Rhodes finished with seven catches for 128 yards. Mustang tailback Abear Simien rumbled for 121 yards and a touchdown on just 11 carries.
