Mustangs still tied for first place after 25-6 victory over Husaria
The Plock Mustangs offense burst out in the second half to overcome a stubborn Husaria Szczecin defense en route to a 25-6 victory on Saturday afternoon in Plock. The Mustangs remained undefeated for 2011 with the victory, and are tied with the Warsaw Spartans for the top spot in the PLFA II North Division.
Neither team gave the fans much to cheer about in the first half, with three-and-outs being the order of play. Lukasz Pietrzak finally broke the deadlock in the third quarter, scoring on a 16-yard burst. He then scored again from a yard out to give Plock a 13-0 lead at the beginning of the fourth quarter.
The Mustangs were not yet home free, however, as Husaria's Marcin Kaim took the ensuing kickoff back 90 yards for a score to bring the visitors back to within a touchdown. That was all the points Szczecin would get on this day, though, and Plock tacked on two more scores to get to the final margin.
Halfway through the season, nothing is decided in the PLFA II North, although it is looking likely that the Mustangs, along with the Spartans, will occupy one of the top two playoff positions when the season ends. Husaria are in a group of three teams currently tied for the final spot in the division, although none of the three currently has a winning record.
Both teams will continue their campaigns in two weeks' time, with the Mustangs looking to make it 4-0 with a home date against the winless Warsaw Werewolves on July 10. Husaria, meanwhile, will be at home the previous day to take on one of the teams with which they are currently tied, Torpedy Lódz.
