SaberCats season comes to sudden stop

MOORE — Southmoore held its postseason destiny in its hands when it took the field Friday. A win against Mustang would not only capture a spot in the playoffs, but ensure a first home first round game.

It all seemed set up for the SaberCats. However, the Broncos had a different game they were going by. They rolled over Southmoore 41-21 at Bronco Stadium to earn their first trip to the playoffs in three years.

For Southmoore (6-4, 4-3) the loss ended their season much sooner than they had expected. The biggest reason why was the Cats inability to get its vaunted ground game rolling/ They were held to a total of 262 yards. They were held to 56 total yards in the second half.

That put more pressure on quarterback Conner Uselton, who was 7-for-14 for 23 yards.

The SaberCats actually took the first lead of the game on a Pierce Spead 8 yard TD run in the first quarter.

However, Mustang (6-4, 4-3) responded to take a 20-7 advantage to midway through the second quarter.

Spead reached the endzone two more times as Southmoore closed to within 26-21 heading into the fourth quarter. It looked like Cats might come all he way back.

But in the fourth quarter it all fell apart. The Broncos scored 15 unanswered points to close out the contest.

Spead paced Southmoore with 171 yards rushing and three touchdowns on 18 carries. He finishes the season 1,028 yards and a team high 14 touchdowns.

Fellow senior Jaelon Walker battled a ankle sprain and was held to 76 yards against Mustang. He ended his season with 1,304 All-purpose yards and 10 scores.

Keaton Bell (90), Brandon DIck (69) and Corey Keyes (63) led the team in tackles on the year.
