There wasn’t much offense on display for the Mustangs, battling forced punts and forced turnovers all afternoon.
Bedford’s wide reciever Davion Johnson had a great game catching 2 touchdowns and multiple first down receptions, not only was he scoring touchdowns but also catching multiple 2-point conversions adding to those touchdown scores for the Bedford Bearcats.
Trent Cloud and Deangelo Howard also contributed to catching a touchdown a piece from Arshaun Boone. It was just a magical day for the Bearcat offense.
