11/15/2014 NMU Superior Dome Marquette, MI – The Munising Mustangs kicked off to start their playoff game against the Crystal Falls Forest Park Trojans at the NMU Superior Dome on a cold and silent November night. The excitement was palpable as the stands filled with fans. The Crystal Falls Forest Park Trojans started the night by scoring a touchdown on their opening drive. They failed to score a two point conversion however, so the score was 6-0 early in favor of the Trojans. The Munising Mustangs did their best to fight back, and they did just that when they scored a safety on a fumbled snap to make the score 6-2. Garrett Blank scored a touchdown on a great run from the red zone and a good extra point kick made the score 9-6 at the end of the first quarter.
