NEEDLES — The Needles High School Mustangs Football team routed the Lake Mead Eagles 64 - 14 on Oct. 12 in Branigan Field.

The much-needed win for the Mustangs gives them a 2-1 league record and a 2-4 record overall.

The Mustangs kicked off but after an Eagles fumble, the Mustangs recovered the ball at the 30-yard line. Their first drive of the game ended with a touchdown by Tyler White who ran it into the end zone.

The Mustangs defense stepped up and was able to get a couple of turnovers which gave the Mustangs offense great field position.

The next game for the Mustangs is against Calvary Chapel Lions starting at 7 p.m. on Oct. 18 on Branigan Field.
