Football: Mitchell 40, Anclote 13

TRINITY — Mitchell came into Friday night's game without starting running back Ricky Trinidad. It didn't seem like it made a difference, though, as the Mustangs triumphed 40-13 over Anclote.

The Mustangs took advantage of two early interceptions from quarterback Jon Forgione. The Mustangs scored their first touchdown as quarterback Matt Michaels sneaked into the end zone from 2 yards out. Eddie Musto scored on Mitchell's next possession, rushing from 3 yards out to give Mitchell a 12-0 lead with just a little over seven minutes to go in the second quarter.

Anclote was unable to get any offense going, fumbling on two of its first four possessions. Though those fumbles were recovered, Anclote went three and out and were forced to punt both times.

In the second half, it took Mitchell just three plays to score as Dustin Rodgers scored a 45-yard touchdown to put Mitchell up 19-0. Anclote came back on its next drive and finally got on the scoreboard. A four-play drive was capped by Travis Hendrix scoring from 67 yards out.

The Mustangs responded, however, by scoring on their next three possessions, including a 79-yard kickoff return by Dylan Buono.
