Huntingdon and Camden had met 75 times on the football prior to Thursday night and the Mustangs have come out on top with 62 victories in the series. The Mustangs 57-0 win over Camden on Thursday, may have been one of the most dominate wins in the 63 times the Mustangs have defeated Camden on the gridiron. The Mustangs controlled both sides of the football and led 42-0 at the half behind a dominating offense and a stifling defense. For the game the Mustangs amassed 450 yards with 397 of those on the ground and the Mustang defense held Camden to minus 36 yards on the ground and 40 yards through the air.

SIDESTEP – Landon Gordon side steps a Camden defender as Mustangs win 57-0 over Lions.

The Mustangs had six different players score and set the tone in the first two minutes of the game. Brady Warbritton intercepted a pass on Camden’s second play of the game and two plays later Meal Leavitt romped for 15 yards and Cole Chafin added the first of his seven extra points and the Mustangs took an early 7-0 lead in the region matchup with the Lions.

The Mustang defense then recorded two sacks on Camden’s next drive and the offense took over at the Camden 45 and on the third play of the drive Landon Gordon raced 32 yards for the touchdown and with just over seven minutes left in the first quarter the Mustangs led 14-0 after the Gordon run and Chafin’s point after.

The Mustangs then took advantage of a mistake in the Camden kicking game as the snap to the punter was low and the Mustangs took over at the Camden 29 and in four plays Elijah Flowers bulled his way in from three yards with five minutes left in the first quarter. Chafin tacked on the P.A.T. to give the Mustangs a 21-0 lead.

The Mustangs next score came on the very last play of the first quarter as Ashton Hutcherson who was seeing his first playing time of the year found the end zone from three yards out. Chafin again was good on the P.A.T. and the Mustangs led 28-0 after one quarter of play.

The Mustangs kept the momentum going into their first possession of the second quarter as they took over at the 50 and Gray Eubanks connected with Kaleb Pearson for 35 yards and then Eubanks scampered the last 15 for the score and Chafin added the extra point and the Mustangs increased their lead to 35-0.

Flowers then added his second score of the game as the Mustangs went 55 yards in five plays to score on a ten-yard run by Flowers and the score went to 42-0 with Chafin’s P.A.T.

The second half began with a running clock but it didn’t slow down the Mustangs. On the opening drive of the half Gordon sprinted 36 yards to pay dirt and Chafin again added the extra point and the score stood at 49-0. Sawyer Raines gave the Mustangs their next points in the fourth quarter as he sacked the Camden QB in the end zone for a safety and a 51-0 lead.

Freshman running back Tyreke Hutch capped the scoring for the Mustangs with 2:20 left in the game as he set sail down the home sideline for a 61-yard run to post the final points of the night and a 57-0 Mustang win.

The Mustangs 2-1 for the season and 1-0 in the region were led by Gordon in rushing with 91 yards in three attempts, Eubanks 5-74 rushing and 2-2 passing for 53 yards, Flowers 8-43 and two scores, Hutcherson 4-20, Leavitt 3-26, Hutch 1-61, and Pate Tippitt 1-50.

The Mustangs host Parsons Riverside this Friday at Paul Ward Stadium for a 7:00 p.m. kickoff.
