Friendswood Mustangs (5-0, 2-0 in District 10-5A-1) drowned Ball High Tors (2-2, 0-2) on Friday, October 5, 2018, 35-7 at Courville Stadium.

The Mustangs were the first to score a touchdown after they had a pair of promising drives end with interceptions by the Tors’ Darian Jobe and Evan Bennett. A 61-yard run from Clarence Dalton put Ball at the Mustangs’ 25 but Friendswood held.

Friendswood ran the game over late in the first half when Luke Grden and Austin Alvarez hooked up on an 11-yard score that made it 21-0 at intermission.

Bennett’s 54-yard kickoff return to open the second half gave Ball High momentum but the team wasn’t able to convert on the opportunity. The Mustangs’ made the Tors pay with a 62-yard drive that Colton Halata finished with a 6-yard run to swell the lead to 28-0 with 7;02 left in the third quarter. The Tors were finally able to get on the scoreboard when Martavian Jackson found Nigel green for a 31-yard touchdown with 2;05 left in the third, but the Mustangs added an insurance score on Grden’s 8-yard scoring throw to Halata with 9;55 left in the game.

“We just have to move on to the next game,” said Tors coach Kimble Anders, whose team travels to meet undefeated Shadow Creek at 7 p.m. Friday. “We have to come out, play tough and give ourselves an opportunity to win.”
