MUSTANG — The Yukon Millers held the Mustang Broncos to a field goal in overtime before Yukon's Hayden Somerville connected with Caelan Groce on the following possession to give the Millers a 19-16 win Friday in Mustang.

Mistakes plagued Yukon early as they turned the ball over twice in the first half. The Millers were also penalized five times for 50 yards.

However, Mustang couldn't capitalize on Yukon's mistakes and missed on a number of opportunities to extend the lead early in the game. The Broncos had two touchdowns called off due to penalties and finished the half with a 7-0 lead.

Second-half adjustments were key for the Millers, who opened the third quarter with a four play, 49-yard drive capped off by a 42-yard touchdown run by Shawn Anderson.

Yukon used a no-huddle offense after the break and rushed the ball 23 times in the second half, compared to seven in the first.

The Millers took their first lead later in the third with a 59-yard scoring strike from Somerville to receiver Trae Anderson. After a botched PAT snap, the Millers held a 13-7 lead.
