The DCG Mustangs got a late touchdown for a 10-7 win over Pella on Friday Night. The win ended the 42 game winning streak of the Dutch who are the three time defending state champions.
Damon Clapper hit Thomas Erickson on a 54 yard slant pass with 4:35 remaing as the Mustangs took the lead. The game was a defensive battle most of the night as both teas struggled to consistently move the ball.
DCG took an early lead on an Austin James field goal and the Mustangs took that lead into halftime. Pella scored on the first series of the second half to take a 7-3 lead before the late Mustang heroics.
With the win, the Mustangs end non district action at 2-0. Next week they start District 2 action when they host Greene County.
