West Grand football trounces Sanford in season opener

The West Grand Football Mustangs kicked off their season with a bang, trouncing the Sanford Indians 40-0, and moving to 1-0 on the season.

Junior quarterback Luis Dominguez was the star of the show, going 4-10 for 110 yards, a touchdown and an interception. But where Dominguez really shined was in the running game, where he carried the ball 11 times for 50 yards and four touchdowns.

Junior Hugh Wheatley also made his presence on the field known. Wheatley rushed for 66 yards and a touchdown, adding onto 36 yards receiving and an interception on defense. Senior Like Mogck added 37 yards receiving and a touchdown.

The Mustangs’ defense was oppressive all night long, allowing West Grand to build up an early 22-point lead by half and close the door on any ideas of a Sanford comeback.

Senior Josh O’Hotto was a wall at inside linebacker, racking up 16 tackles in the shutout. Junior Noah Schroeder had 11 tackles, including a seven-yard sack, one of three for the Mustangs on the day. Junior Marcos Ramirez recorded five tackles, including a sack, and blocked a punt.

The Mustangs will look to build off the win this Saturday when they travel to South Park High School to take on the Burros.
