REIFFTON – The Governor Mifflin, Exeter Twp. match up always has plenty on the line.  The undefeated, Ranked #1 in 5A  Mustangs, were looking to take control of the Berks 1 League race.  Mifflin was coming off of a dismantling of its non-league foes. The Eagles have plenty of talent. Exeter Twp. was looking to get on track in Berks 1 play after two tough non-league losses.  But the suspense of this game, lasted a whopping 12 seconds.  Governor Mifflin’s (6-0) Tyler Minick took the opening kick back for a 75-yard TD. The Mustangs never looked back.  The Mustangs looked impressive and came away with a 54-21 win over Exeter Twp (4-3).

Penn State commit Nick Singleton led the way for Governor Mifflin.  Nick tallied 244 yards rushing and four touchdowns.  Exeter’s  wideout Joey Schlaffer had some HUGE catches for the Eagles despite being the focus of the defense all night long.

It took all but 12 seconds for the Mustangs to get on the board in this one. This is the second consecutive game Mifflin took the opening kick back to the house.

Mifflin’s Eden Johnson capped a ball controlling drive on the Mustangs’ next possession.

The next Mustang possession another signature long TD run by Nick Singleton got it to 21-0.

Mifflin blocked an Exeter punt for a safety.  The Mustangs took the ball and who else but Nick Singleton with another special TD run to move the lead to 30-0.

There was no quit in Exeter Twp.  The Eagles put together a nice TD drive to get things going.

Mifflin came right back. But when the Eagles D stiffened, Jackson Schools popped through a Field Goal.

The Mifflin Coaches told me that an on side kick on the second half kick was diagrammed during halftime.  The onside kick play was diagnosed from film study by the Coaching staff during the week. Three plays after the recovery Mifflin’s Nick Singleton scored a TD.

Exeter would not go away.  The Eagles put together two TD’s, one the result of a HUGE fourth down conversion catch by Schlaffer to make this a game in quarter four.

Two fourth quarter TDs by Mifflin removed all doubt in this one and the Mustangs beat the Eagles 54-21.
