Mustangs mauled by visiting Tigers in gridiron actionFogarty earns five touchdowns for Dexter to keep rebuilding Mount View winless
Thorndike — Veteran Mount View football coach Jack Brady has stated all season that his team is young and likely to make mistakes.
Unfortunately for the Mustang coach, he was right on both accounts Sept. 15 in Thorndike when his squad hosted the Dexter Tigers in their second home game in the first three weeks of the new campaign.
The 'Stangs (0-3) trailed 13-0 with time winding down in the first half before the Tigers (2-1) tacked on another score before halftime, which set the tone for the rest of the day as the hosts were downed 56-0.
Mount View looked poised to cut its deficit in half as the Mustangs were inside the 5-yard line, but Tiger Trevor Fogarty made a key interception and returned the ball 96 yards for a touchdown, which took away any discernible chance the hosts had of stealing momentum.
Fogarty, also the Dexter quarterback, had five touchdowns on the day, including two passing, two rushing and the interception return at the end of the first half. Fogarty passed for 153 yards and rushed for 88 yards.
Andrew Levansaler also rushed for 128 yards on 10 carries and one touchdown for Dexter, while Tyler Ripley had two catches for 31 yards for Mount View.
In Eastern Class C, Mount View (0-3) is tied for 11th in the 12-team region. Foxcroft Academy of Dover-Foxcroft (3-0, 152.3810 points) is first. The top eight team squads qualify for the playoffs. The Mustangs' point total is not updated in the standings.
