Mundy’s Mill running back Toren Coombs looks for some running room in the Tigers’ 29-0 win over Morrow Friday at Twelve Oaks Stadium.
Friday night’s 20-0 loss to Mundy’s Mill left the Morrow Mustangs winless in three games thus far this season.
To add insult to injury, the Mustangs have been outscored 129-0 during those losses.
“The offense will work only when we do the little things right,” Morrow offensive coordinator Mac McKissic said. “Our system relies on rhythm and quarterback play, both have to be in sync in order for us to be successful.”
Mundy’s Mill offense was successful the majority of the first half.
After failing to score on its opening possession, Mundy's Mill found the end zone on three of its next four possessions thanks to three touchdowns by halfback Toren Coombs.
The Tigers didn’t score again, but didn’t have to due to a staunch defense that only allowed the Mustangs one possession in their territory the entire night.
That drive, two long pass plays from Morrow quarterback Shammua Harold to wide receivers Sterling Taylor and James McDonald ended on downs for the struggle Mustangs’ offense.
The improved Mundy’s Mill to 1-2 overall and in Region 4-AAAA.
Mundy’s Mill Head coach Peniel Dany is hoping this win will jumpstart his team.
“I’m not sure if we got the monkey off our back, but it is a step in the right direction," he said.
