Backup QB leads Mustangs past Bulldogs
Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees had nothing on Evergreen Park.
Just as two of cinema’s most infamous bad-guy characters of the past 35 years were impervious to every act designed to kill them, so, too, are the Mustangs seemingly able to ward off all attempts to defeat them. The latest group to try — and fail — was Richards Friday night.
When Bulldogs quarterback Hasan Muhammad-Rogers threw a 9-yard touchdown pass to Spencer Tears with less than five minutes remaining to give their team a six-point lead at Korhonen Field, Richards appeared to be standing on solid ground. While Evergreen has made a habit of staging late rallies during Dan Hartman’s three-year coaching tenure, rarely has it had to come back against a foe the caliber of this year’s Richards squad.
