Morton rally falls short
Mustangs come back from 26-0 hole but fall to Rich South
BERWYN – The weather forced Morton football’s season opener to start a day late, and the Mustangs started playing a half late.
A pick six on the first drive of the game for Rich South started the visitors’ dominant first half. The Stars went into halftime up 26-0. Morton fought back to get within three points in the fourth quarter, but couldn’t complete the comeback and fell, 32-23.
“I think we weren’t used to our team yet,” senior quarterback Emilio Engle said. “It was our first game. It was a Saturday morning. All of us were kind of tired and not ready. We were losing 26-0 at half and then realized we had to step it up, but it was too late.”
