Stillwater sacks Broncos in home opener

Chandler Garrett One

As excited as Mustang was last week at this time following the blowout win at Yukon, the Broncos are just as disappointed this week with their home-opening loss to Stillwater Friday evening.

The Pioneers took it to the Broncos from the opening play of the game, as they went on to beat Mustang 35-26, shocking the Bronco Stadium commentary new.qxd

“They came out and took it to us right out of the gate,” Mustang coach Jeremy Dombek said. “We were flat on both sides of the ball and they made us pay for it. I thought we fought back, but when you dig yourself a hole against a good football team, it’s hard to get out of it.”

The loss to Stillwater drops the Broncos’ overall record to 1-1 this season.

The Pioneer run game killed the Mustang defense throughout the night as Stillwater finished with 338 total rushing yards in the contest. SHS passed for only 58 yards, but with the powerful run game, the air attack wasn’t needed.

Stillwater finished the night with 396 total yards of offense against Mustang.

Pioneer running back Cameron Mayberry stole the show in Bronco Stadium, as he rushed for 237 yards with three touchdowns on 24 carries. All three of Mayberry’s touchdowns were more than 40 yards.

Mayberry’s teammate, Marlin McDonald was a solid sidekick to Mayberry last Friday night. McDonald finished the game with 62 yards on 16 carries with one touchdown. He also had to step in at quarterback in the second half for Stillwater after Braxton Noble was injured in the first half and was unable to return to the game. McDonald finished with 53 yards through the air on 3-of-5 passing.

Before Noble went down with his injury, he did some damage to Mustang, getting 10 yards on six carries and one touchdown. He also passed for 5 yards on one completion.
