The first five times the Mustangs got the ball, they scored a touchdown while the first five times the Patriots had it, they went three-and-out.
With nine seconds gone in the second quarter, Fountain Central had a shutout going at 35-0.
“Yeah, our defense was pretty good, too,” said Moore. “They only got one first down on our varsity, but we still have things to work on.”
That first down did not come until midway through the second quarter after the Mustangs had upped their lead to 42-0.
Terron Wade got things going for Seeger with a kickoff return out to the 47. Trevor Bowlus carried three times and the last carry picked up a first down.
Despite finally getting the ball moving, the Patriots were unable to score on that possession and punted into the end zone.
Having the ball deep in their own end did not seem to bother Fountain Central, who pitched to running back Collin Strange on the first play of the possession.
The junior raced 80 yards for a touchdown that, with an extra point by Christian Viveros, made it 49-0 at halftime.
After the break, Fountain Central went on an 18-play, 11-minute drive using some JV players to take a 56-0 lead.
Seeger got on the board after that with a six-minute drive of their own, capped off by a 48-yard touchdown run by Bowlus.
The Patriots would add another score by their JV in the last minute of the game.
“There’s not much to say that’s positive,” said Cook. “Well, maybe about how the JV bounced back, but that’s about it.”
He spoke of the future, saying, “You look toward the end of the season and sectional, but we’re not resilient enough right now. And with these guys maybe out for the season, too, I just don’t know.”
