Mustangs dominate Mountain View
The Hoxie Mustangs rebounded from last week's season-opening loss with a dominating 40-0 win over the Mountain View Yellowjackets Friday night at Crider Field.
"I was proud of the way we responded from our loss at Heber Springs. We got back to playing our brand of physical and aggressive football," said Hoxie head coach Tom Sears.
Hoxie opened the scoring on a one-yard run by Dillon Williamson with 6:24 to play in the first quarter. Jeremy Anglin's PAT gave the Mustangs a 7-0 lead. Sebastian Irvin put Hoxie ahead 13-0 with a 55-yard run with 4:10 to play in the opening period. The PAT attempt was no good.
The Mustangs continued to rack up points in the second quarter. Quarterback Jeremy Anglin passed 39 yards to Jonathan Quesada with 11:42 to play in the period. On the final play of the half, Jeremy Anglin connected with Austin Anglin on a 28-yard scoring pass to give Hoxie a 27-0 halftime lead.
After a scoreless third quarter, the Anglins hooked up again, with Jeremy passing 11 yards to Austin with 9:53 to play in the game.
Garrett Hart added Hoxie's final points on a one-yard run with 3:54 remaining in the game. The PAT attempt was no good.
"We still have areas to improve, but I thought we had a lot of positives. Our defense played great, containing a very dangerous back and being physical. We also had some big plays from our special teams," said Sears.
Irvin led the Mustang rushers with 124 yards on 19 carries. Williamson finished with 63 yards on 10 carries, and Blake Snow had four carries for 45 yards.
Jeremy Anglin completed six-of-10 passes for 101 yards and three touchdowns.
Austin Anglin had two receptions for 39 yards. D.J. Kendrick caught two passes for 15 yards, and Quesada had one reception for 39 yards.
Defensively, Snow had 12 tackles, a fumble recovery and caused a fumble. Chris Montelongo had eight tackles, a fumble recovery and caused a fumble. Devin Roberts had six tackles. Kyle Boyd and Tyler McCarroll each recorded five tackles.
The Mustangs are at home again on Friday, when they host the 4A Highland Rebels. Game time is 7:30 p.m.
