McCracken Party Don’t Stop

McCracken Party Dont Stop

Reese Guill, Messenger Reporter

On Sunday, August 21, the McCracken Mustangs proudly destroyed the Paducah Tilghman Tornados by an embarrassing score of 41-6. After the 1st quarter, the score was 21-0. The Mustangs came to play and this was definitely a statement game to the rest of Western Kentucky. All three of the touchdowns in the 1st quarter were led by our amazing quarterback, Cash Jones. Cash is basically the second coming of Jesus for us. The 1st touchdown was a 17-yard passing touchdown from Cash Jones to Lawson Parrish to make 6-0, and then Cameron Hartig kicked the extra point to make it 7-0. That was only 4 minutes into the game. The 2nd touchdown was just 3 minutes after that and it was a 20 yard touchdown from Cash Jones to Dalton Lanphere. With 1:23 left in the 1st quarter Cash Jones ran the football in the endzone for a 1 yard touchdown. 4 minutes into the 2nd quarter TaeShawn Allen ran the ball 46 yards for the 4th touchdown of the game and at this point Tilghman had still not scored a single point. 4 minutes later, Cash Jones threw a 34 yard touchdown to Lawson Parrish to make it 34-0. With 2 minutes left in the 1st half, Cash Jones connected with Dalton Lanphere for a 9 yard touchdown. At the end of just the 1st half, McCracken was up 41-0. Apparently the referees felt sorry for Tilghman, so they implemented a running clock for the 2nd half. The running clock actually turned out to help Tilghman as they scored their only touchdown of the game in the 3rd quarter. To wrap up this game, I think this highly anticipated game showed that McCracken should no longer be disrespected, that they have the capability and willpower to win…
