Mustangs take down Panthers

Published: Saturday, October 13, 2012 at 01:00 AM.

Depending on who you were rooting for, things went from good to great or bad to worse in the blink of an eye when the Panthers fumbled on the first play from scrimmage and Lajonte Watson recovered the fumble and advanced the ball for the Mustangs at the Davidson 19-yard line.

It took the Mustangs seven plays to move the 19 yards before quarterback Rusty Moorer found Kameron Parker with an 11-yard touchdown pass.

The Panthers moved the ball to deep into Mustang territory on the second possession of the night. However, the drive stalled at the 3-yard line and Shoal River took over on offense again.

For a brief moment the momentum swung in Davidson’s favor when the Panthers dropped Kenny Whaley in the end zone for a safety.

The safety turned out to be Davidson’s only score of the first half.

Davidson continued having problems holding on to the football as the Panthers fumbled the ensuing free kick after the safety and the Mustangs again recovered. The first quarter ended with a Davidson muffed punt, which was again recovered by the Mustangs as time expired in the first quarter.

After the muff, Shoal River set up shop on the Panther 22-yard line and aided by a pair of off sides penalties against Davidson, the Mustangs needed just four plays before Monderas Flavors scored from two yards out.
