The Mustangs looked like a team that wasn’t ready for the season to end, as they rolled to a 63-21 victory over North Garland Thursday night at Williams Stadium to close out the regular season.
Sachse (4-6, 4-4 District 9-6A) awaits the results of the Wylie-Garland game Friday night to know its postseason fate.
Brenden George had a perfect first half, completing all 13 passes for 245 yards and three touchdowns, connecting with Robbie Rothrock for two and Grayson King for the other.
George added a rushing touchdown, as did Pope Akanna and Brendan Haygood. Although Akanna finished the night with only 24 yards rushing, he needed just ten to top the 1,000-yard mark for the season.
VictorJesus Gutierrez also was flawless in relief, finishing 6-6 passing for 82 yards and two touchdowns.
The Mustangs defense bottled up North Garland (3-7, 2-6) running back Jaden Davis, the area 6A rushing leader entering the game, limiting him to just 35 yards on 16 carries.
