The Governor Mifflin football team had won another Section 1 title, earned themselves a home playoff game and was now ready to begin a deep postseason run. Well, Central Dauphin East spoiled the party with a 22-20 victory over the Mustangs.
The Mustangs made big plays on both sides of the ball this Friday night. However, giving up 391 total yards to East would prove to be enough to end Mifflin’s season.
Mifflin had 20-19 lead heading into the final minutes of the fourth quarter. However, the Mustangs would allow CD East to string a drive together and a hit a 34 yard field goal eventually leading to the upset win.
Mifflin will head into the off season a few weeks earlier than expected. Coach Vecchio has to be happy with his troops effort in 2013. After a slow start the Mustangs won 7 straight games. Also a silver lining for Coach Vecchio and the Mustang faithful junior duo Jan Johnson and Wilson Fontanez will be back next season. Congratulations once again to the Mifflin seniors on another fine season and Section 1 championship.
