Less than two minutes into the second half, the Mustangs flipped the script Friday night and turned a tight game into a dominating 46-16 win at home.
Down 16-14 to visiting Laurel-Concord-Coleridge, Mustang senior Trey Elbert nabbed a key interception and changed the momentum of the game. Elbert's pick set up the Mustangs deep in their own territory, and Gage Tighe used the gift for a 76-yard touchdown sprint to take the lead and stun the Bears.

"I feel amazing about the win," Elbert said. "Coach said it was the tale of two halves. The first half we had to adjust to a couple of things on defense. The second half we stuck to our core defense that we prepared for all week, and we stopped them while they couldn't run anything on us."
