It marked week two of Friday Night EndZone, as many area teams took the field for action. The schedule was headlined by our game of the week between Albemarle and Monticello.
The Patriots drew first blood, as Jordon Hill scored on a screen pass to put Albemarle up 7-0, but the Mustangs had an answer. C.J. Page rushed in from 12 yards out to tie the game, and Tyler Moneymaker hit Thomas Estepp for a 33 yard strike to put the Mustangs up by a touchdown. E.J. Johnson had two interceptions on defense to stop Patriot threats, and Page added another score, while Moneymaker rushed for a TD as well. Page finished with 151 rushing yards and two touchdowns, while Moneymaker threw for 156 yards. The Mustangs improve to 1-0, while the Patriots fall to 0-1.
