Sachse picked up their first win of the season against North Garland. They dominated throughout, outgaining the Raiders 411 yards to 121 yards in a 41-7 victory.
After a difficult start to the season due to COVID-19, the Mustangs are right where they want to be, 1-0 in district play with an important game against Garland.
- Keep the Owls from going to the air
Quite simply, in Garland’s first two wins, quarterback Cergio Perez had 626 yards passing and 10 touchdowns to only one interception. He was nearly perfect and completed nearly 66 percent of his passes. Garland scored 48 against Richardson and 42 against North Garland in their first two wins.
- Continue dominance on the ground
Sachse through two games has been one of the best rushing teams in the district. They’ll need to continue to do that against a stingy Garland defense. The Owls have yet to allow a team rush for over four yards per carry, typically the benchmark for a good rushing performance.
- Continue to clean up the mistakes
After the win over North Garland, coach Behrens said that he attributed the mistakes Sachse made early in the season to a lack of game action. They had to wait an extra week to get on the field to play, then immediately had a bye week due to COVID-19 cancellations. After struggling in week one, the Mustangs were again plagued with penalties and turnovers in their second game.
