The PCM Mustangs’ football team started off district play with a bang against the Centerville Big
Reds on Sept. 12 at home. The Mustangs gave it their all against the Big Reds and came out on top, winning 48-19.
“We went out there knowing we needed a win,” said junior Tyler Dredge. “We did a good job capitalizing on some opportunities.”
The Big Reds started off the game with the ball, but a bad first series gave the Mustangs good field position. PCM then scored right away off a one-yard senior Ronnie Marshall touchdown run.
Centerville came back though and scored two straight touchdowns, putting the score at 7-13. Then the Mustangs fought back, scoring on a 70-yard touchdown pass from junior Logan Gilman to senior Ricky Reeve. It was all Mustangs from that point.
On offense, Gilman threw for 254 yards and four touchdowns. Reeve racked up the yards and had five receptions for 164 yards and three touchdowns, while Marshall ran for 123 yards on 27 carries and three touchdowns.
On defense, junior Skyler Moore and senior Luke Pendroy each had seven tackles and led the team. Senior Skyler Koder had six. Senior Hayes Applegate had a 56-yard interception for a touchdown, and Reeve also had an interception to add to his stat-line.
“I thought at times we played really well, but not so well at others,” said senior Connor Warrick. “We need to play for the whole game if we want to win more games. We just have to keep getting better and keep having good practices.”
The Mustangs’ next game is at home this Friday, Sept. 19, against Davis County. The Mustangs are now 1-2 on the season.
