SILSBEE, Texas —
Chalk up another District 21-3A Championship for the West Orange-Stark Mustangs.
Using a punishing ground attack, the Mustangs wore down Silsbee in the second half as WO-S went on to topple the Tigers 26-12 Friday night at Tiger Stadium.
The Mustangs (10-0, 7-0) chewed up 262 yards on the ground behind a dominating effort by a much-improved offensive line.
The Mustang defense, which has pitched seven shutouts this season, finally got scored upon for the first time in 21-3A play. The Tigers (8-2, 6-1) piled up 165 yards in the first half but the Mustangs rose up in the last 24 minutes, limiting Silsbee to just 64 yards in the second half.
