Electricity was missing from some of the West stadium lights but not on the football field Friday night.

The Mustangs rose above the stadium issues to defeat the Tomball Cougars 53-29 in district play.

Junior Quarterback #4 Tyler Ferre, completed 8 for 15 passes and racked up 220 passing yards.

“I can guarantee a 100 percent victory,” junior Adrian Thomas said before the game.

Thomas backed that statement up with two touchdowns and 268 yards rushing against The Cougars.

The charged energy of senior Chris Nicolson, #20, added to the Mustangs score with two additional touchdowns and 160 rushing yards.

Ferre and junior, #2 Damarren Mitchell, combined for 118 receiving yards which resulted in another touchdown for the Mustangs.

Junior receiver Aaron Thomas contributed to the overall score with an additional 6 points.

“They [Tomball] were pretty good, but not all that physical,” junior Aaron Thomas said.

Defensive players senior Ryan Martin, lead the team with 12 tackles and junior Andrew McCaffety obtained 10 tackles for West.

Although the stadium lights diminished three different times and stopped play on the field for both teams, Magnolia West managed to play through the distractions to beat the clock and the Cougars for the first district win of the school year.
