|Win over Glenbrook key for Mustangs|
The River Oaks Mustangs (3-1) rushed past Glenbrook for a key Mississippi Association of Independent Schools victory last Friday night, 21-12.
River Oaks was led on the ground by quarterback Ryan McGregor who rushed for 51 yards on 14 carries and scored one rushing touchdown. The dual threat signal caller also completed 4-of-12 pass attempts for 65 yards and one interception.
Davis Harris also had a good game rushing the ball for River Oaks as the sophomore rushed for 44 yards on nine carries for a solid 4.9 yards per carry average.
John Rockett (2 caries, 5 yards) and Aaron Rogers (1 carry, 2 yards) were limited in their carries thanks in large part to a tough Glenbrook defense that was ready and willing to stifle the River Oaks offense early in the contest. River Oaks eventually wore down the interior of the line and made some big plays to gain the momentum.
Vincent Moore continued to impress the River Oaks faithful and the Mustang coaching staff with his leadership on defense. Moore recorded eight tackles and two interceptions and Harrison Hollow added an interception that gave River Oaks eight forced turnovers during the game.
River Oaks scored on two fumble returns for touchdowns which proved to be the difference for the Mustangs.
"Turnovers were the big key for us," head coach Robert Hannah said. "We were able to capitalize with some fumble returns for touchdowns and we executed on offense."
The turnover margin has been a key factor in the early part of the season for the Mustangs as River Oaks has been able to take the ball away and score, thus improving their chances down the stretch that sees them poised to make another solid run to the MISA playoffs.
The Union Christian School Lions are the task this week as they come to Woody Boyles Field with upset on their minds. In their first year of MAIS competition, the Farmerville school is 1-3 after a 31-30 victory over Class 2A Cenla Christian Academy gave the Lions their first victory of the year and the first win for the program at the MAIS level.
"They will be excited to play at River Oaks," Hannah said. "It does not matter who you play, we still have the same goals in mind each time we step out on the field. We want to improve on both offense and defense."
The River Oaks-Union Christian contest can be heard on the radio on KMLB 540 AM beginning with a pre-game show at 6:30 p.m.
