Mullen wins 33 straight games on the way to its 3rd straight state title.

All the pieces, run game, smothering D and play action, that have allowed the Mullen Mustangs to win 33 straight games on the way to a third straight 5A state title came into play yesterday afternoon at Invesco Field as Mullen dismantled previously unbeaten #2 seeded Regis 37-6.

The tone of the game was set early when Adonis Ameen-Moore busted a 30 yard run on 4th and 2 to get inside the ten yard line. The remainder of the day the Regis defense could not get off the field as Mullen consistently converted on 3rd . Soon after, Mullen backer Leilon Willingham recovered a Regis fumble caused by Connor Healy. The turnover eventually led to a nine yard reverse run by Mustang receiver Rayshon Williams. The remainder of the game would take the same tone as the Mullen defense swarmed all over the Regis offense allowing no significant rush yards for 1,500 yard rusher Jordan Jungers. With the pass game stymied, Mullen could pin their ears back in passing situations keeping QB Luke Longfield from hitting his trio of a talented pass catchers.

After the initial 10 points Mullen poured on 21 more taking a lead of 31-0 into the half. In the third, Regis showed some life as Longfield hit Casey Young on a 33 yard completion but the Raiders failed to convert on 4th and 1.

Late in the game Regis scored on the Mullen reserves but the first half pummeling was too much to overcome as the Mustangs placed themselves into the conversation as one of Colorado’s top teams ever winning a third straight over a tough opponent 37-6.
