Arcadia’s Apaches Blasted by Muir’s Mustangs

by Tim Peterson


The Arcadia Apaches are a good team fighting for respect while the Muir Mustangs are a potentially great team fighting for a league title and a deep playoff run.

It turned out as expected with the Mustangs running all over the Apaches 48-7 on Friday night at Horrell Field on the campus of Muir High School.

Before Muir had even run an offensive play, it was already 14-0 Mustangs and only one minute and 12 seconds had ticked off the clock. This wasn’t a ground and pound type of attack. It was more like a nuclear explosion. Consider this. Muir scored seven touchdowns and everyone of them was at least 30 yards or more.

Taeon Mason returned the opening kickoff 92 yards for a touchdown and scored three times overall. He caught a 68 yard pass touchdown from Dejon Williams in the first quarter and also a 56 yard TD strike from backup quarterback Joey Knowles in the third.

Arcadia quarterback Joey Harmon had a rough night completing three of 14 for six yards and two interceptions. The Apaches didn’t score until the fourth quarter when Nico Hiller, who replaced Harmon in the second half, scored on a two-yard run.

Arcadia had just 53 yards through the air all night. Taelon Haggerty led the Apaches on the ground with 71 yards on seven carries.

The Apaches under first year head coach Andrew Policky fell to 3-2 in the Pacific League and 5-3 overall.
