MOUNT IDA – Mount Ida proved that it doesn’t have to be pretty as long as you win tonight with a 28-0 victory over the visiting Mineral Springs Hornets.

The first half was a defensive struggle with neither team earning a first down in the first eight and a half minutes of the game. The Hornets recorded the first 1st Down at the 2:31 mark of the first quarter and Mount Ida only recorded one 1st Down the entire First Half.

Defensively Mount Ida recorded interceptions by Blake Collum and Caleb White in the first half.

Mount Ida took control of the game early in the first half, scoring four unanswered touchdowns. Baylor Bates capped an opening eight play drive with a 25 yard touchdown run. Jack Hoeksema scored on the two point conversion. 

Hoeksema was the next to find the end zone on a 27 yard run.

Bates scored the final two touchdowns, once on a 24 yard run and again on a five yard run. Caleb White carried the ball in for the two point conversion after the final touchdown.

Mount Ida moves to 2-3 on the season and will travel to Des Arc next Friday for their final non-conference game of the season. Kick off will be at 7 p.m.

See next week’s Montgomery County News for a full recap of the game.
