The Flinthills Mustangs achieved their first victory since the 2014 season by defeating the Oxford Wildcats 34-20 at home on Friday night. The Mustangs kicked off to the Wildcats and gave up an opening touchdown drive to go down 6-0. The next possession, Flinthills came back tied the game 6-6. The remainder of the first half was a back-and-forth affair with both teams scoring one more touchdown each. The Mustangs were successful on a two-point conversion and went into the half with a 14-12 lead.
Flinthills received the second-half kick and despite a long drive, came up empty due to a fumble. The defense responded by getting the ball back on a turnover on downs. The Mustangs then took control of the game by scoring the next two touchdowns. Oxford made a valiant effort by scoring another touchdown but had a late drive come up short due to an interception by Kedryn Morse. The defense caused another turnover on downs and the offense punched one more touchdown in to give Flinthills a 34-20 victory.
The victory marks the first win under second-year hear coach Daniel Scribner, and the first win for the program since week three of the 2014 season.
“It was a great victory to get our program headed in the right direction,” said Scribner.
“We have a number of students that now have a little taste of victory and we hope to build on that. Our community has been great their continued support and we were glad to reward them with a victory after a dry streak.”
