VEEDERSBURG, Ind. — Fountain Central football coach Brian Moore has seen a lot of things in his years of coaching, but he honestly could not remember seeing a performance from Trevor Loveall on Friday.
Loveall returned a punt for a touchdown, caught a 38-yard pass from Koby Pierce and returned an interception for 80 points all within the first five minutes of the first quarter of the Mustangs’ 76-14 win over Riverton Parke.
“It was pretty cool to see,” Fountain Central coach Brian Moore said. “He is a good player and he just seemed to be in the right places for everything to happen so that was pretty rare. He is a great playmaker for us.”
Loveall also caught two passes for 40 yards during the game, which saw the Mustangs pile up 423 total yards.
With the win, the Mustangs are 3-0 with an offense that has scored at least 47 points in each game, but Moore says to not expect big scores for most of the rest of the season as they play tougher teams
“Offensively we are doing pretty well,” Moore said. “We have been playing some young teams, so we are not going to have any illusions of grandeur going into the rest of the season.
“We are just going to focus on getting our assignments right and execute on every play.”
The Mustangs will travel to Covington next week.
Second half comeback
MILFORD — For the second straight week, the Milford/Cissna Park football team were in a situation where they were tied at halftime.
The Bearcats were tied 7-7 with Iroquois West before coach Clint Schwartz challenged the team.
“At halftime, we talked to our players about doing their jobs and not worrying about anyone else,” Schwartz said. “If they would do that, good things would happen.”
MCP did its job in the second half as Devon Laubscher scored on a 1-yard touchdown in the third quarter and a 43-yard score in the fourth.
