Mustang Football Drops Region Opener 18 -17

A 45 yard field goal came up just short with seconds ticking the game away as the Mustangs dropped their Region 7 opener on the road at Sardis, 18 – 17.  MA jumped to a 17 – 0 halftime lead, but could not gain any offensive momentum in the 2nd half, as Sardis scored with less than a minute left in the game.  The Mustangs quickly made it to the Sardis 35 for the field goal attempt.

Mustang fans would remember that in 2011, MA started the year at 0 – 2 with losses to North Jackson at home and Sardis on the road, and then came together to make it to their first 3-A state championship game, losing narrowly to Handley 20-14 and finishing with a 12-3 record.

The Mustangs will host Randolph next Friday night for Homecoming.  Let’s be there!
