Mustangs get back on the winning track with 34-3 pounding of Weber

<strong>PLEASANT VIEW—</strong> After two consecutive losses by a combined five points, the Mountain Crest football team was ready for an easy victory. Friday night playing at Weber proved to be just that, as the Mustangs rolled to a 34-3 blowout.

Mountain Crest quarterback Jamison Webb turned in a solid performance scoring the game’s first touchdown in the first quarter with an 11-yard scamper to put the Mustangs up 7-0 and stake them to a lead that would never be in doubt. Webb finished the game 18-for-33 with 217 yards and two touchdown passes.

The Mustangs’ next strike would come from Gaje Ferguson running it in from seven yards out to put MC up 14-0. MC would close out the half with another score on a 48-yard pass play from Webb to wideout Faimafili Laulu-Pututau to end the first half up 21-0.

In the second half, Weber tried to mount a comeback with a strong opening drive that eventually ended with a field goal to make it 21-3 for Mountain Crest and ending the scoring for Weber for the night.

MC running back Eddy Hall had another strong performance, rushing for 138 yards on 16 attempts and a 23-yard touchdown in the third quarter to make it 27-3 after a failed point after touchdown.

Ferguson ended the scoring with his second TD of the night, this one coming on a 7-yard pass from Webb to make it a final score of 34-3.

Mountain Crest will look to use this momentum as they prepare for their game against valley-rival Sky View next week in Hyrum. That game will kickoff at 7 p.m.
