It would have been easy for the Governor Mifflin Mustangs to look past Twin Valley in anticipation of their matchup with Conrad Weiser, but Coach Mick Vecchio would not allow it.
The Mustangs took the field looking to extend their winning streak in Section 1 to 24 games. It would not take long for them to get on the board and on their way to doing so.
The Mustangs got the scoring going early on a Jan Johnson 13 yard touchdown run, putting them up 7-0 on the Raiders.
Soon after the Johnson touchdown, came a 54 yard touchdown run from slotback Aric Dupell. Following a missed extra point attempt, the Mustangs held a 13-0 lead after the first quarter.
Jan Johnson would add a 1 yard touchdown before halftime, which was completed by a Brett Chambers two-point conversion putting the Mustangs up 21-0.
The Mustangs would continue scoring often in the second half, when Jan Johnson found Aric Dupell for a 27 yard touchdown, putting the Mustangs up 28-0.
Before the third quarter could conclude, the Mustangs got the clock running with the mercy rule on a 19 yard touchdown pass from Jan Johnson to Brett Chambers.
When it was all said and done, the Mustangs had earned a 42-0 win over Twin Valley.
Jan Johnson, whose numbers have dropped off a little bit this season, enjoyed possibly his best game of the season, as he passed for 141 yards and 2 touchdowns, while also rushing for 84 yards and 2 more touchdowns.
In addition to his rushing and receiving touchdowns, Aric Dupell also intercepted two passes.
The Mifflin defense has not allowed a point in 3 games, which bodes well heading into their matchup with Conrad Weiser and beyond.
With Conrad Weiser’s loss to Reading, and the Mustangs win, Governor Mifflin clinched the Section 1 championship.
The Mustangs (6-0, 7-2) will head to Robesonia to battle the Scouts (4-2, 7-2), while Twin Valley (0-6, 0-9) will head to Pottsville (2-4, 4-5).
