Friday Night Scores and Highlights
The West Orange-Stark Mustangs have yet to find a team that can beat them. On Friday, the Mustangs carried away their fifth straight victory in the 2012 regular season defeating Hardin-Jefferson 49-0. It was the fourth shut-out this season for the ‘Chain Gang’ defense. The Mustang are on a scoring stampede with 176 points– and counting.

Scott struck again dashing 64 yards to score for the Mustangs just 19 seconds in to the third quarter. Salter connected with receiver J’Marcus Rhodes for
