Hoxie's Mustangs proved to be good mudders in defeating Trumann 41-12 in soggy conditions in the opening game of the senior high football season.

The Mustangs built a 27-12 lead in the first half and added two more touchdowns in the second half.

Gunner Cook was Hoxie's workhorse on the ground, rushing for 170 yards and two touchdowns on 24 carries. Jacob Henson carried twice for 82 yards and a touchdown, and Colton Brown rushed for two scores. The Mustangs racked up nearly 300 rushing yards as a team.

Special teams also contributed to the rout, as Robert Posey returned a punt 42 yards for a touchdown.

Brown was also stellar on defense, finishing with 12 tackles and forcing and recovering a fumble. Slade Sullens also recorded 12 tackles. Austin Williams made 10 tackles. Conner Roberts added nine stops, while Henson recorded eight.

Hoxie will host Riverview at Crider Field on Friday at 7:30 p.m. Peewee players will be recognized before the game.
