Mustangs take down Panthers

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

A 55-yard pass play from Moorer to Chris Raines put Shoal River up 20=2 with 3:57 left in the half. The Mustangs weren’t done though as Moorer scored on a 5-yard run with 56 seconds left in the half and Shawn Galliano kicked the extra point  to push the lead to 27-2 at the half.

The ball finally bounced Davidson’s way on Shoal River’s first drive the third quarter. The Mustangs were on the move and had the ball down to the Panther 8-yard line.

A motion penalty against Shoal River moved the ball back to the 13. The next play the Mustangs fumbled and the Panthers recovered it at their own 12.

Aided by a couple of major penalties, Davidson took the ball the length of the field and scored its only touchdown of the night when Bryce Larking motored into the end zone from two yards out.

A touchdown late in the fourth quarter by Shoal River tailback Jalen Ciurleo was the last score of the night and capped the big win for Shoal River.

“We had three turnovers in the first quarter and four in the first half and we never could get it going,” Davidson coach Chris Small said. “They are a very good football team. They came out and beat us physically and they won the game.

“That’s two years in a row  (with a losing season) and that’s not Davidson football.”
