Knox — One would be hard-pressed to find a high school football team that had a better homecoming game than the squad from Mount View High School.

In fact — against Orono under the lights on Friday, Sept. 22 at Larrabee Field — the only thing that could stop the Mustangs was the halftime intermission.

The ‘Stangs scored a touchdown on each first-half possession — and held the Red Riots scoreless through that same span of time — en route to a lopsided 50-14 triumph.

Leading the Mount View offense were Rayno Boivin (15 rushing yards), Adrien Sholes (68 rushing yards, 65 receiving yards), Garrett Smith (34 rushing yards), Jack Valleau (90 rushing yards, 11 receiving yards), Kyle Noble (90 rushing yards, 12 receiving yards), Joe Lepore (35 rushing yards), James Thompson (12 rushing yards), Brady Moulton (50 rushing yards) and Justin Landers (11 rushing yards).

Boivin tossed for 188 yards in the victory for Mount View.

Leading the Mount View defense were Zach Ward (assisted tackle), Adrien Sholes (2 solo tackles, 3 assists), Jack Valleau (2 solos, 3 assists), Theo Dodge (3 solos, 2 assists), Dyllyn Anderson (3 assists), Kyle Noble (2 solos, 2 assists), Brennan Albano (2 assists), James Thompson (solo, 2 assists), Brady Moulton (2 solos, 4 assists, fumble recovery, sack), Justin Landers (solo), Bradley Tucker (sack), Mark Ward (solo, 3 assists), Gabriel Gagnon (3 solos, 4 assists, 2 sacks), Paul Nadeau (2 solos, 3 assists), Matthew Keating (4 solos, 4 assists), Allen Gagnon (3 solos, 8 assists) and Colby Ingraham (solo, assist, sack).

Mount View wasted little time — 13 seconds to be exact — in getting on the scoreboard as Noble returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown. After a Jordan Brown extra-point kick — one of five he booted on the night — the hosts galloped to a 7-0 lead.

Sholes then took a short screen pass from Boivin, followed his blocks and motored for a 35-yard score with 5:49 remaining to put the hosts ahead 14-0.

Then, following an Orono turnover, Boivin made something out of nothing after the ball was snapped over his head and he raced back nearly 20 yards to regain possession.

He then managed to find Noble to convert the first down, while Valleau cashed into the end zone from about 19 yards out to put Mount View 20-0.

The Mustangs then converted a two-point conversion when Boivin bobbled the extra point snap and motored to the right pylon to give the hosts a 22-point edge with 3:09 to play in the opening quarter.

Mount View led 22-0 after the first quarter and 43-0 at halftime after 65-yard touchdown run by Valleau, a 6-yard touchdown run by Noble and a 72-yard touchdown reception by Brown.

In the Maine Principals’ Association Heal Point Standings for Class D North, Mount View (2-2, 7.5000 points) is seventh, while Foxcroft Academy of Dover-Foxcroft (3-1, 40.6250 points) is first in the 10-team region. The top 10 teams qualify for the playoffs.
