The Mustangs proved to be too strong for the Wolfpack as they ran their way to a 51-13 victory at Stagg Field at the University of Chicago.
Senior quarterback Tommy Mister started the scoring for the Mustangs, who scored on all five possessions in the first half, as he called his own number on an eight-yard score.
Mister keyed the St. Rita offense as he rushed for 90 yards and three scores, and D.J. Miles added another 94 yards and a touchdown as the starters played just the first half after building a 30-0 halftime lead. Brendan McNally had 82 yards and a touchdown for St. Ignatius (1-6).
