MUNISING, MI –  After starting the season 0-3, the Mustangs’ season looked all but lost.  Head Coach Jeff Seaburg would have none of it.  Munising was able to pull themselves up and finish the season 6-3.  Going into week nine, the Mustangs needed a win to solidify themselves as a playoff team.  It didn’t start off well, as they fell behind early 10-0 and showed no signs of offense.  That all changed as the Mustangs took over late in the second quarter, and managed to tie the game before the teams went to halftime.  After that, all Munising needed to do was score once as their defense locked down the Purple Hornets in the second half.  Once again, the Mustangs were led by Junior Quarterback Austin Kelto, who threw a 60-yard touchdown pass and also ran in the winning touchdown from four yards out in the third quarter.  Cody Hayes carried the ball 14 times for the Mustangs to the tune of 75-yards, and Alex Hill caught one ball on Kelto’s 60-yard touchdown.

The Mustangs will look to continue their impressive win streak in a rematch with the Powers North Central Jets.  Munising faced them in week two and lost the game 14-12.  Austin Kelto threw for two touchdowns in the contest as the Munising offense couldn’t capitalize on their defensive counterparts success.  As per usual, the Mustangs will have to rely heavily on their leaders in Kelto, Hayes, and Hill.  Munising will have to contain a very talented Jets offense that averaged just over 28 points per game this season.  Of course, this is a different Munising team since their last meeting with the Jets.  In their six-game win streak, the Mustangs have outscored opponents 180-100, showing that they’re able to score at a much higher pace.  In their first three games, the Mustangs only managed to score a shade under 11 points per game.

Be sure to tune into AM1400 WQXO this Friday night as the Munising Mustangs travel to Powers-North Central to take on the Jets.  Charlie Nebel will have the call as always.  Pre-game is at 6:30pm & Kickoff is at 7.  GO MUSTANGS!
