The Meeker Mustangs played their final home games of the season Saturday at Starbuck Stadium. Teams and fans made the trip from New Castle on a beautiful fall day. The third-fourth grade boys played first, making quick work of New Castle with a balanced attack of tough defense and precision play calling on the offensive side of the ball. All the boys played well and earned another win in their quest for an unbeaten season. Coaches are very proud of the hard work and quick learning in these boys. The fifth-sixth grade boys met a very big and well prepared New Castle team. Blocking on offense proved to be a tough task and the Mustangs just couldn’t get much going. Defensively, coaches could not come up with a solution for the speed and blocking of the New Castle powerhouse offense. Precision execution and speed to the outside had the Mustangs on their heels and struggling to keep up. Despite a tough loss, players demonstrated good sportsmanship and an adherence to the saying “we never quit!” Above, Ruger Bane (4) tackling one of the big New Castle running backs.
