Kingwood vs. Klein Collins, September 4th, 2015, Turner Stadium
To the members of the Mustang Nation! Friday night’s game was a hard fought battle against another formidable opponent – the Klein Collins Tigers. There were big improvements offensively with many bright spots coming from the running and passing game – putting points on the board ”on the ground”. Defense and special teams had improvements as well, but big plays by the Tigers provided a tough fought game - and the Mustang Nation is focused on a rebound this week. Let’s go to work!

Keep up the spirit, keep the throttle down, and keep working hard Mustangs! WE LOVE YOU GUYS AND HAVE YOUR BACK ALL SEASON LONG!!!!!! BUILD THE HOUSE!!! HERE COMES THE MUSTANGS AGAINST FRIENDSWOOD – GO GET’EM!!!!!!!! GO GET A WIN THIS FRIDAY!!!!!“The Mustang Nation”
Offensively, the Mustangs had lots of positive yards up the middle - a key aspect to success as we work through the remainder of the season. The passing game had bright spots as well, but the Mustangs will learn this week the importance of team offensive, and executing flawlessly, will result in many more first downs and touchdowns as we progress through the season.
Defensively, the Mustangs got caught on big passes, and quick running from the Tiger’s offensive. Again, aside from the score, there were many bright spots from the front 4, and linebacker core, and third level. Great reads and cut offs were executed, and many times the ends and tackles provided excellent pressure on the pocket, and tides of strength against the running game. The key to improvement will be utilizing talent in key offensive time, distance, and down situations, and maximizing focus on technique and team tackling.
The special teams did a GREAT job of creating positive yards on punt returns and kickoff returns, and on kickoffs and punts – all game long – this is really the bright spot we all expect more of as the season progresses.
This is a special group of men, and they showed amazing character and ferocity up until the final play of the game.
Keep up the spirit, keep the throttle down, and keep working hard Mustangs! WE LOVE YOU GUYS AND HAVE YOUR BACK ALL SEASON LONG!!!!!! WE HAVE AN AWESOME FOUNDATION…BUILD THE HOUSE!!!
GO GET YA WIN ON THIS FRIDAY!!!!!
