GARDEN CITY — The South Effingham Mustangs were looking to ride a wave of momentum after opening their season with a big win over the Long County Blue Tide. The Mustangs, however, couldn’t muster any points offensively at Garden City Stadium on Friday and Jenkins took full advantage, clinching a 22-6 win. “It was a disappointing loss for us,” South Effingham head coach Donnie Revell. “We felt like we had an opportunity to win that game.” There was a bright spot in the loss. The defense forced a shutout in the second half and, although it wasn’t enough to win the game, it was a testament to the Mustangs' determination to not allow the Warriors to pile on the points. “They played well as a unit,” Revell said. “We still have lot of things we need to work on. We are young on the defensive side. Josh Duncan had 14 tackles and I think Hunter Tindall had 10 and a fumble recovery, and (he) returned it for a touchdown. So, they all played pretty well and our guys up front did some good things that allowed them to make some plays.” See the Aug. 29 edition of the Effingham Herald for more details.
