Co-Go's Feature Matchup: Mt. Pleasant rolls over Derry

PSR Logo
Running backs Kyle Halterman and Chris Wagner combined for 215 yards to lead Mt. Pleasant to a 42-7 rout over Interstate Conference rival Derry at Vikings Stadium on Friday night.

Halterman scored on an 80-yard run 45 seconds into the first quarter to set the tone for  a Vikings rushing attack that piled up nearly 350 yards on the ground.

“Our staple is our run offense,” Mt. Pleasant coach Bo Ruffner said. “All our backs played well.”

Mt. Pleasant (2-0) took a 21-0 lead in the first quarter thanks to Halterman’s run and a pair of touchdown passes from junior quarterback Johnny Yester, who hit Keith Kalp and Aaron Bunting in the end zone in the opening frame.

The Vikings ran for 324 yards and passed for 115 while Derry was only able to manage 31 yards on the ground. The Trojans had some success in the air in the first half, pulling within 21-7 after Sonny Stevens completed a 7-yard touchdown pass to Nick Chinchock early in the second quarter.

Mt. Pleasant’s depth and strength proved to be too much, however, as the Vikings cruised in the second half.
