NEW MARKET, Ind. – It took only one play for the Fountain Central football team to set the tone in their game at Southmont.
The Mustangs scored on their second snap of the game to take a 6-0 lead en route to a 50-31 victory.
After throwing an incomplete pass on their first play, Fountain Central gave the ball to Jared Fishero who ran down the right side of the field for a 68-yard score.
“We cane out and were excited to play,” said Fishero. “We really turned it on from the start – we were coming off some
tough two-a-days so we were ready to play.”
The Mustang defense then gave up only one first down on the next Southmont series and then the offense returned to the
field to pick up where they left off.
Fishero, Daniel Harrison and quarterback Koby Pierce combined to move the ball to the Mountie 29.
The next play was a reverse from Pierce to Fishero to Trevor Loveall and the senior cruised in for a touchdown that, after the
extra point made it 14-0.
Southmont went three-and-out, messed up their punt play, fumbling the ball with Ethan Woodrow recovering for Fountain
The Mustangs fumbled on their next play giving the ball back to the Mounties, but the hosts returned the favor – and the ball –
two plays later.
Getting the ball on the Mountie 22, the Mustangs took two plays to score – a pass from Pierce to Loveall and a keeper by
Pierce to go up 21-0.
Christian Viveros kicked off for Fountain Central and executed what Mustang kicking coach Brett Sheldon call “a perfect kick”
that allowed Thad Crain break past the front row of Southmont receivers and grab the ball.
Pierce wasted no time in hitting Loveall again for a 23-yard touchdown pass that put Fountain Central up 28-0.
