The MacArthur Generals varsity football team took a large step toward redeeming their reputation last Saturday, Oct. 2 at Thorne Stadium, defeating the Aldine Mustangs 48-6.
After a 24-10 victory in the first game of the season, the Generals have struggled with their offense, and have not scored any points in the last 2 games. They lost to Nimitz on Friday, Sept. 24 with a score of 3-0. The game had ended in a 0-0 tie, but the Cougars managed to win the game in OT with a field goal.
In this week’s game, the General offense came alive, with daring plays well executed. In the 3rd quarter QB #5 Darius Hicks completed a 74 yard pass to #1 Kendrik Dennis for a TD that brought the score to 41- 0. Then #1 Jason Crampton rushed 65 yards for another TD.
The Aldine Mustangs managed to salvage a little near the end of the game, with a 70 yard kick return by #23 Daeron Brown to avoid a shutout. The final score was Generals 48, Mustangs 6.
Next week MacArthur plays Dekaney at Planet Ford Stadium on Friday night, with a 7:00 pm kick-off.
