After forcing a quick punt from WW South (8-4) on its first drive, Mustangs quarterback Carson Schiller led his group down the field, but Rolling Meadows was forced to settle for a 28-yard field goal from Danny Fallon. The senior kicker also recorded a 63-yard punt in the fourth quarter.
David Zieba’s interception on the next defensive series led to another field goal from Fallon, this one from 29 yards out. Nife Oseni also had an interception for the Mustangs Saturday.
Though the Mustangs had just six points to show from back-to-back red zone possessions, linebacker Matt Walas knew his group’s confidence was building.
“Just getting the [interception] early and getting stops, our defense knew it was going to have a big day,” Walas said. “Our [defensive line] is so fast and physical. We pride ourselves on our defense. Especially in the playoffs, it’s been 11 hats to the ball on every play.”
