In the end, it was the Mustangs' defense that stood tallest, keeping the Colts out of the end zone, and coming up with a crucial takeaway in the fourth quarter to help secure Hoxie's 21-14 victory. Rivercrest managed just 22 yards of total offense and three first downs on the evening.
"Our defensive coaches - Brett Shrable, Chris Wagoner and Chris Murray - had a fantastic game plan. Anytime you hold a quality team
that is as dangerous as Rivercrest to 22 total yards, you have done something special," said Hoxie head coach Tom Sears.
