Mount Vernon runs over Rebels of NE
October 04, 2013 · Crystal Eskelsen
The Mustangs did their job well on Friday.
"We had to flush the game from the week before," said Duane Orr, Mount Vernon head coach, referring to the Monticello loss on Sept. 20. "We had one choice and that was to pull together."
They did just that and came away with a shutout victory over Northeast, 40-0. The victory put Mount Vernon in second place in its district.
"It was a good win," Orr said. "We did good things in the three phases of the game - offense, defense and special teams."
Mount Vernon got on the board in the first quarter with a Trey Ryan five-yard run for a touchdown. The PAT kick was no good so the Mustang lead was 6-0.
Then, Mount Vernon's Mickey Hines scored from three yards out for the second Mustang touchdown, giving them the 12-0 lead at the end of the first quarter.
In the second quarter, Tommy Hook scampered one yard on a quarterback keeper for another Mustang touchdown. The PAT kick by Keanan Shannon was good, and the Mount Vernon lead was 19-0.
Hines would score next, this time on a 64-yard run. The PAT kick was good, and the Mustangs were ahead 26-0.
In an effort to put the ball in a lot of different athletes' hands, the next Mount Vernon score came on a Jake Pisarik six-yard carry. Following the kick, the Mustang lead was 33-0.
The final Mount Vernon score came in the third quarter when Ryan Muller ran the ball 10 yards for a touchdown, growing the Mustang lead to 40-0.
Mount Vernon sophomore Hines had a breakout game at Northeast, carrying the ball 11 times for a total of 142 yards and a touchdown.
"Mickey looked like the varsity back we knew he could be," Orr said.
The Mustangs held the Rebels to just 149 yards of offense and 1-for-10 on third down conversions.
"Our defensive pass rush, those guys on the line, did a great job," Orr said.
The Mustangs host Cascade Friday night. They are coming off an upset win over Union last week, 30-21.
"They are a very balanced team," Orr said. "Their quarterback can make plays happen. It's going to be a slugfest."
