The offense clicked again for the Mustangs on Friday night as PCM routed Madrid 49-12 in a game heard live on kniakrls.com. The Mustangs scored early and often and were lead by seniors Hutch Burns and Joel Wiggins.
Head coach Greg Bonnett credits the two with the team having this much success so far.
“They’re just two horses. They’re kids with really good integrity, they work hard, [and] they do anything you ask of them,” said Bonnett. “I couldn’t be prouder of those two; they’re true leaders.”
Burns, who had a big week last week, added two more touchdowns to his season total after scores in the first quarter. The big story of the night was the PCM passing game. Quarterback Joel Wiggins was nearly perfect in the first half after struggling in week one. The signal caller went 7-for-9 for 157 yards and 2 touchdowns through the opening two quarters.
After jumping out to a 35 point lead by halftime, PCM started the second half with the running clock and Joel Wiggins had his longest run of his career. The senior went 70 yards for a touchdown to make it 42-0. The score stayed the same until late in the fourth when Sean O’Conner scored off the fourth Madrid turnover of the game. Madrid was able to get on the board late in the fourth, having back-to-back drives resulting in touchdowns.
PCM is now 2-0 overall and plays at home next week against Colfax-Mingo to begin district play.
