Flinthills 40, West Elk 28
HOWARD — Senior Jacob Oates ran for 345 yards and five touchdowns  and the Mustangs ran for 427 yards as a team to beat the Patriots for their first win of the season.
“The offensive line did an outstanding job Friday night opening up holes inside and out to spring Oates,”?said Flinthills coach Shane Thornton. “I know Oates will get a lot of the media attention this week, but he owes a lot of that to Chris Sjogren, Jacob Martin (played line and fullback), Reece Arnold, Shae Selhost, Couger Hefton, Levi Hefton, and James Hinnen.”
Michael Hinnen led the Mustangs (1-2)?in tackles with 11 and had an interception that stopped West Elk late i nthe game. Sjogren had 10 tackles, a fumble recovery and a sack.
 “We still gave up too many yards.  We need to work a little bit on our secondary work and also each person doing their job,”?Thornton said. “I have no doubt that we will get better as the season continues. The boys are really excited about next week and the future.  Chris Veith will be returning from an ankle injury next week.  There’s no doubt that he will help us out.”
