HEPPNER – The Heppner Mustangs improved to 4-0 by shutting out the Colfax (WA) Bulldogs Friday night 27-0. Both teams entered the night undefeated but the story of the night was the Mustangs defense. The Bulldogs managed just 67 yards of total offense, punting nine times and turning it over three more times.
Jason Rae led the Mustangs with 4 tackles and Kason Cimmyotti returned a pick six but overall it was a defensive team effort.
Jayden Wilson accounted for Heppner‘s other three touchdowns, throwing for two and rushing for another.
The Mustangs who are ranked #3 in the OSAA 2A rankings open their league campaign next Friday at home against the Riverside Pirates.
