MUNDAY—The Munday Moguls found a replacement for their opening game and will start the season on the road at Peaster at 7:30 p.m. Friday. The Moguls originally had been scheduled to go up against Iraan at Sweetwater, but that game was canceled when COVID left 15 players out and the school closed for two weeks.
Coach Justin Josselet managed to arrange the game with Peaster, a larger 3A school that just recently started playing football, over the weekend after the school indicated it would provide a charter bus and a meal for the team.
“They will provide us with a good challenge on both sides of the ball, and we are looking forward to the opportunity to compete,” he said.
The Greyhounds return 10 offensive and eight defensive starters from a 3-7 season where they were winless in the tough District 4-3ADI where state-ranked Brock plays.
The Moguls will be tested defensively as quarterback Gunner McElroy, son of coach Gary, had impressive numbers as a sophomore last season, throwing for 1,640 yards and rushing for 377 yards.
Josselet felt the Moguls’ second scrimmage against former district opponent Wheeler went well. “We made some mistakes, but improved in a lot of areas since last week,” he said. “I feel like we are getting close to executing at a high level.”
Some local fans will have to wait until next week when the Moguls host former district competitor Shamrock.
