Graves ran for over 70 yards and caught six passes for 63 yards.  The Mustangs also got a big day out of Youngbloom who was 12 of 20 for 164 yards and two scores.  Preston Carlise, Tyler Jones and Nathan Rogalski all contributed on the ground attack.  Rogalksi scored a two yard touchdown.

However, the Mora defense was the difference.  The Mustangs gave up two big runs, but otherwise, shutdown the Patriots offense which had scored 125 points in  the three previous postseason games.

Head coach Randy Qual talks about the performance of his defense.
