WO-S blanks HJ, 49-0

(Continued)

SOUR LAKE —

The best that could be said of the early moments of the game is “ugly” as the opening kickoff reaped back-to-back penalty flags that led the Hardin-Jefferson taking possession on offense at the Mustangs’ 41. The Hawks looked like they were spoiling for an upset when Gieseke completed a 52-yard pass play to Andrew Martel.
The offensive totals for H-J at the end of the half told a more complete story as the Hawks finished the first two quarters with 11 yards of total offense and the one first down on the Gieseke-Martel hookup.
Once WO-S got over the early game struggles, the Mustangs were able to push H-J deep into their own end of the field, forcing punts that left the Ponies with a short field looking directly into the end zone.
After forcing H-J to punt, Mustang returner Dwain Boullard brought the ball back from the 31 to the 3 where John Scott took the ball on the first snap into the end zone for a 7-0 lead with 11 seconds left in the first quarter.
The Mustangs were able to convert again on good field position, moving the ball 34 yards in three plays midway through the second quarter with Jimmy Salter connecting with Dre Spencer for 18 yards and the score. The Mustangs took their 14-0 lead into the halftime break.
Leading the Mustangs offense was Scott with nine carries for 123 yards while Salter completed 8 of 15 for 75 yards. His top receiver was Dwain Boullard  with 2 for 29 yards. The Hawks, who were limited to 73 total yards, including negative-2 rushing, were led by Gieseke’s 4-of-12 pass attempts for 75 yards with three interceptions.
