INDEPENDENCE – It took a while for the Mustangs to get rolling, leading 14-0 at the half, but once they stepped out of the locker room at halftime, it was all Independence. The Mustangs rolled in the second half, winning over Hampton-Dumont-CAL, 40-13.

Senior Marcus Beatty had only 55 yards rushing in the first half, but exploded for 198 in the second behind that big offensive line that dominated the line of scrimmage the final 30 minutes.
