Last Friday evening, November 1, the Mustangs of South Western visited the Rockets of Spring Grove and were defeated 31-15.  The Rockets virtually shut down the Mustangs running game and Tyler Sterner’s 217-yard passing game with 2 touchdowns was not enough to defuse the Rockets.

The win vaulted the Rockets from the 17th seed position to the number 13 seed and they will visit the number 4 seed Scouts of Conrad Weiser (7-3 overall, 4-3 Berks Inter-County I) at 7PM on Friday, November 8 in the first round of the District 3 class AAA Playoffs.

The Mustangs came out like a house afire and drove 37-yards in nine plays featuring a 7-yard pass from Sterner to Wyatt Trostle and a 15-yard pass from Sterner to Hunter Palmer, only to have the drive end with a quarterback sack by the Rockets.  The Mustangs punted and the Rockets started at their 1-yard line.  Brandon McMinn intercepted a Rockets pass and the Mustangs were in business at the Rockets 5-yard line.  Three plays later Brock Geiman kicked a 21-yard field goal, putting the Mustangs up 3-0 at the 6:18 mark of the first quarter.

The Rockets then drove 53-yards in eleven plays, only to misfire on a 39-yard field goal attempt.

The Mustangs started at their 20-yard line and after three plays attempted a punt, but an errant snap gave the Rockets the ball on the Mustangs 1-yard line.  After a penalty moved the ball back to the 6, Jeff Delaughter scored a touchdown on a 6-yard run.  Andrew Luckenbaugh’s extra point kick put the Rockets up 7-3 with 5 seconds left in the first quarter.

The Mustangs punted again and the Rockets drove 57-yards to the Mustangs 17-yard line.  Then a sack for a 13-yard loss by Gunner Holtz of the Mustangs ended the drive with a missed 40-yard field goal attempt by Luckenbaugh.

The Mustangs punted again and the Rockets drove 53-yards in seven plays, ending with Hildebrand’s 35-yard touchdown pass to Hall.  Luckenbaugh’s extra point kick put the Rockets up 28-9 with 6 minutes left in the game.

The Mustangs then drove 77-yards in five plays, featuring a 15-yard pass from Sterner to Trostle and a 10-yard pass from Sterner to Palmer, and ending with Sterner’s 54-yard touchdown pass to Brady Thayer.  That made the score 28-15 in favor of the Rockets with 4 minutes left in the game.

We bid a fond and tearful farewell and offer our best wishes for the future to the 20 departing seniors.  We owe them all our gratitude for their efforts in providing us with exciting football over the course of their high school careers.  They are:  Richard Bosse, Logan Bowman, Camden Brown, Brenden Fahs, Steven Foster, Tyler Hoke, Domnick Holcombe, Gunner Holtz, Tyler Kohler, Ryan Lane, Jordan Markle, Brandon McMinn, Zach Osborne, Elder Sterner, Tyler Sterner, Payton Taylor, Dillon Thomas, Wyatt Trostle, Aaron Uttley, and Joshua Walker.  And we want to also say thank you and goodbye to the three senior team managers, Joshua Coggins, Cody Dunlap, and Dakota Goldbeck.

I want to say a very special thank you to Richard Lupro for faithfully compiling the official Offensive, Special Teams and Scoring statistics for the Mustangs, and for inputting them at the Max Preps web site very quickly each week so that they were always available for my use.  He was instrumental in coming up with many of the records that will be mentioned below.  And a very special thank you also goes to Mustangs Assistant Coach Chris Heilman for inputting all of the defensive stats at Max Preps after reviewing game films on very short notice.  They were always available for my use on a very timely basis.

The 2013 Mustangs represented their school and league honorably, played hard, and never gave up.  They have a great nucleus of returning players from the junior varsity and solid players coming up within the ranks.  And the distant future looks bright as well, as the 7th, 8th, and 9th grade teams have some really promising players.  I can’t wait for next season to begin.  Until then, GO MUSTANGS GO.
