The game had to be stopped for nearly an hour when lightning moved into the area midway through the second quarter, but it didn't slow the Bronco offense, which ultimately finished with 582 total yards.
After a stagnant three quarters, Putnam City North found its offensive spark — in quarterback Chase Sparks. He led the Panthers on three scoring drives, including touchdown passes of 36 and 65 yards to Jordan Webster and Kaedyn Fuller, respectively. And 193 of his 215 passing yards came in the second half.
But each time the Panthers scored, Mustang had an answer.
“Each time they scored, our offense rallied up,” offensive tackle Tristan Hill said. “We kept going and didn't let them coming back affect us.
“It felt a whole lot more like Mustang football, with a lot of points and a lot of yards. It felt like the good ol' days.”
