BENJAMIN – A big 54-6 win over Rule was much more than the Mustangs’ second straight district championship. For these Mustangs, it was a big place in Benjamin school history.
Last Friday’s game was the last to be played on the original Ben Grill Field. Brody, John, Landon, Mario, Dal, Coy and the Nicks will be the last to feel Knox County grass under their cleats for some time to come.
Sources say a new artificial turf field, complete with new track and field amenities, will be ready by late December. The 2022 Mustangs will defend the District on that new field.
The 2021 Mustangs still have some work to do. The 9-0 team, with a district-best 5-0 mark, will travel to Harrold to finish the regular season this Friday.
Brody White had five touchdown passes on 8-for-15 passing and another two scores with 109 rushing yards on five carries. Mario Silva was top receiver with 86 yards on four catches, with three TDs.
Coy Roberts (22 yards) and Nick Stovall (14 yards) also had scoring catches. Dal Everson (31 yards on four carries) had a touchdown on the ground. As a team, Benjamin collected 278 yards on offense distributed nearly evenly between rushing and passing.
