|River Oaks runs over Porter's Chapel|
The River Oaks Mustangs (2-1) ran away with a 47-8 win over Porter's Chapel in a Mississippi Association of Independent Schools contest on Friday night for their second victory of the season.
River Oaks picked up a whopping 252 yards rushing and quarterback Ryan McGregor was 2-of-9 for 64 yards passing as River Oaks gained 318 yards of total offense.
It was 14-0 before most spectators had even taken their seats. That kind of pressure by River Oaks put PCS in a hole that they could never climb out of.
"I thought Ryan (McGregor) grew as a leader and a quarterback for us Friday night," River Oaks head coach Robert Hannah said. "We were able to jump out to a quick start and kind of shock them."
River Oaks raced out to a big lead early on and kept the pressure on Porter's Chapel all night. The River Oaks defensive unit held PCS to just 102 total yards, all of which came on the ground.
The turnover margin was the real story of the game as the Mustangs forced five PCS turnovers and did not cough up the football on offense for the entire game.
Davis Harris and William Reppon led River Oaks on defense with seven tackles each.
Glenbrook Academy (2-0) will be a big time challenge for the Mustangs this week as the Mustangs travel for a 7 p.m. contest that can be heard on local radio station KMLB 540 AM.
"They have tremendous speed and a great rushing attack," Hannah said. "It will be really important for us to know our assignments and make good tackles."
Glenbrook opened the year with a 53-0 romp over Union Christian School. Last week they got past Tallulah Academy 18-13. The Glenbrook team ranks near the top in most offensive rushing categories. River Oaks has steadily improved their own offensive attack throughout the young season and has totaled 698 yards rushing and 124 yards passing in just three contests.
Aaron Rogers rushed for 55 yards and McGregor rushed for 39 yards to lead the Mustangs and have caused major problems for opposing defenses.
River Oaks can keep themselves in the thick of the Class 2A playoff picture with a win this Friday night.
