The Mustangs possessed a balanced attack on offense led by senior QB J.W. Maldaner He ended the ballgame with 18 carries for 87 yards and a rushing touchdown while also going 16-27 through the air for 197 yards with 2tds and 2 ints.
Defensively Central forced 3 Salthawk turnovers (2ints 1 fumble recovery) but gave up over 500 yards of the ground to Hutch which ultimately led to their demise.
Salina Central is 0-1 on the regular season and will kick off for the first time at home next week as they host Ark Valley Chisholm Trail League opponent Newton inside of Salina Stadium.
