Junior running back Jordan Mims led the team, scoring all four touchdowns of the night. Mims is known for his speed; he also competes in the 100, 200, and 400 meter races in track.
Mims’ first touchdown came at the end of the first quarter with a 68-yard run, bringing the game to 7-3 after Aragon’s field goal. M-A finished the half up at 10-10 after a field goal by senior Dylan Calderon.
With 1:39 remaining in the third quarter, speedy Mims scored again, running 51 yards to put M-A on top at 17-10. In the fourth, Mims ran the score up to 23-10, with a completed 25 yard pass from sophomore quarterback Miles Conrad. Finally, Mims ran 72 yards for his fourth touchdown of the night, thanks to a crucial block from senior captain Bryce Rodgers.
The team takes on rival Sacred Heart Prep at home next Friday.
