Governor Mifflin Extends League Win Streak to 35
Since the 1950’s, Muhlenberg and Governor Mifflin have faced off 56 times. The Mustangs extended their win streak over the Mules to 12 and their Berks one League win streak to 35 by dominating Muhlenberg 49-20 in Shillington Friday Night. The Mustang win coupled with Exeter’s win over Reading High sets up a defacto Berks League Section 1 Title game next week as Exeter hosts Governor Mifflin.
Governor Mifflin was led by Senior Shavon Prince. Prince scored on a sparkling 57 yard punt return and runs of 12 and 43 yards. “We just executed very well,” said Mifflin Head Coach Mick Veccio. “Our kids have played hard every week. Hopefully this will continue for the next two weeks.” Mifflin’s first team Defense and Offense had no penalties or turnovers. Mifflin’s Senior standout Tucker Garner said “We showed what we are capable of tonight. If we do that every single game we are a contender.”
Muhlenberg took the opening kick and showed they were not going quietly against the favored Mustangs. Mules QB Cody Fidler led an impressive drive and when RB Kevens Duffaults ran it in from the 26 it was 6-0 Muhlenberg at the 8:45 mark of quarter one.
Governor Mifflin answered quickly. A spectacular 41 yard bob and weave by Aaron Grill had the Mustangs in front for good after the PAT with 6:23 left in quarter one 7-6. Mifflin’s defense forced a punt on the next Mule possession. The kick went to Shavon Prince on his 43. Prince maneuvered through the Mules 57 yards to pay dirt . Mifflin was now up 14-6 with 5:10 left in the first quarter.
The Mustang D forced another Mules punt. The ensuing Mifflin drive was culminated with a Shavon Prince 12 yard run. 21-6 Mifflin with 10:49 till half. Following a Muhlenberg turnover, a Lucas Garner 26 yard run made it 28-6 Mifflin. The stalwart Mustang defense forced a Muhlenberg turnover on downs near mid field. Mifflin struck quickly. Two plays later a Shavon Prince 43 yard score made it 35-6 Mifflin.
Muhlenberg again could not move the ball. Following a poor punt, their opponents got the ball near mid field. In typical Mustang fashion, a grinding drive ended with a QB sneak by Hunter Reeser for a TD. We went into halftime with Mifflin leading 42-6.
Muhlenberg capitalized on a Miffln turnover to get the score to 42-13 early in quarter three. Mifflin answered to make it 49-13 going into quarter four. Muhlenberg kept fighting. A Cory Fidler late score for Muhlenberg made the final Governor Mifflin 49 Muhlenberg 20.
The Berks 1 title will all but be decided next week as Governor Mifflin travels to face undefeated Exeter. Muhlenberg moves on to face Conrad Weiser.
