The Staley Mustangs 8th Grade Football White Team played a great game against the Scoggins Seahawks last night.  The Mustangs started things off with a bang as running back #27 took the hand off on the first play, cut to the near side of the field and ran down the sideline for a Mustang touchdown.  The PAT kick was good and the Mustangs led 8-0.  The Mustangs defense was tough, they caused a fumble but unfortunately the Seahawks recovered it.  The Mustangs defense stayed the course and broke up a pass on 4th down to get the ball back. A couple of runs by running backs #1 and #25 had the Mustangs driving down the field.  The Mustangs scored again when #27 took it 35 yards to the end zone.  Once again, the PAT kick was good, and the Mustangs led 16-0 with less than two minutes left in the first quarter.  The Mustangs running backs #1, #25 and#27 led the Mustangs' next assault.  The running back trio, led the Mustangs down the field into scoring position, and #25 took it in for a four yard touchdown run.  The PAT was blocked, but the Mustangs had a 22-0 lead with 45 seconds left in the half.  The Seahawks tried their luck with the passing game, but great defense by #29 had the Mustangs knocking the ball away each time as the half came to a close. 

The Mustangs kicked off to the Seahawks to start the second half.  The Mustangs defense shut them down and the Mustang got the ball back.   In a flash, the Mustangs had six more points when #12 took the ball to the end zone.  The PAT was blocked, picked up by a Seahawks player, who proceeded to run down the field towards the opposite end zone; however, he was run down by #88 and #27 just sort of the goal line.  The Mustangs had a 28-0 lead.  The Mustangs changed things up, putting some new players, they were playing well but the Seahawks put six points on the board when #12 broke some tackles and scored on a long run.  The Mustangs stopped the PAT and lead 28-6.   The Mustangs offense answered right back when #15 took it 65 yards for another Mustangs score. Staley Mustangs 34- Scoggins Seahawks 6.  The Mustang defense held the Seahawks on their next  possession.  However, the Mustangs gave the ball back to the Seahawks on fumble a couple plays later. The Seahawks made good use of their gift and scored a touchdown and PAT to give them 13 points.  The Mustangs almost ran the kick off back for a touchdown, but #28 was stopped near the 20 yard line.  The Mustangs scored on the very next play as #12 went through the line, broke some tackles  and sprinted into the end zone for a touchdown. The PAT was run in by #48 and the Mustangs lead 41-13 with five minutes left in the game.   The Seahawks got into scoring position when the Seahawk running back broke some tackles,  and ran 30+ yards before being taken down by #27 inside the 5 yard line.  The Seahawks did score on a pass play, a successful PAT gave the 21 points with just over a minute left in the game.  The Mustangs ran out the clock and came home with a  41-21 win.  A great game by all the Mustangs!!  Way to go, Staley!!
