Burges Ends Their Season Red Hot With A 42-21 Victory Over Bowie
The Burges Mustangs headed into their final game of the 2012 season on a 5 game winning streak. Bowie knew they had their hands full for two primary reasons. First off, Burges hadn’t lost a game since September when Chapin knocked them off. Secondly the Mustangs have two weapons at quarterback and running simply known as, “the Jones brothers.”
The Mustangs utilized the Jones brothers all night long, running back Aaron Jones had only only 5 carries, but scored 3 touchdowns. Aaron Jones scored 2 rushing TD’s, and had a touchdown reception for 78 yards. He had 159 all purpose yards.
His brother, Burges QB Alvin Jones had a solid performance as well on the ground with 10 rushes for 96 yards. He also scored a touchdown on a 46 yard quarterback keeper. The Mustangs also used running back Michael Rasor who scored a 49 touchdown as well.
Burges’ superior ground game enabled them to cruise to the easy victory at Baty-Simmang Stadium, and finish the season with an 8-2 record. The Mustangs finished with a remarkable 7-1 record in District 1-4A, second only to Chapin. Now they will enjoy the last week of the season, as they are idle, and will wait to see who their opponent will be in the playoffs.
As for Bowie, the loss drops them to 5-4 on the season, they are 3-3 in District 1-4A. Their final game of the season is next Friday at Jefferson. The “battle for the southside” will be rather significant for Bowie, if they win, they are in the playoffs. If they lose and El Paso High defeats Austin for the Claw, then the Tigers are in. It should be an exciting final week of the high school football season. After all, rivalrys are always fun!
