Head Coach Will Hudgens and the 2014 Houston Mustang football team beat the Bolton Wildcats 55-21 to open 2-0 for the second consecutive season.

Senior Chase Moss-Pioreck opened the scoring for the Mustangs with 2 yard run on the second drive of the game and they never looked back. Junior followed on the next possession with an interception and 24yard return for a touchdown giving Houston a 14-0 lead just 7 minutes into the game.

After Bolton scored on the ensuing possession, the Mustangs scored on consecutive possessions to push the lead to 28-7 with 3:07 remaining in the 1st half. The first was a 74yard run for a score by Moss-Pioreck and the next was a 15 yard touchdown pass from senior quarterback Jared Schmidt to Junior Chance Pullen.

Moss-Pioreck led the Mustangs in rushing with 14 carries for 182 yards and 1 TD. The Cartwright brothers followed him; Colby Cartwright had 120 yards on 13 carries and 3 TDs while Seth Cartwright had 68 yards on six carries and 1 TD. Jared Schmidt went 6 for 13 for 95 passing yards and 1 TD passing.

The performance of the Defense was equal to the Offense. Other than a meaningless touchdown in the final seconds of the game, they held Bolton to only 220 yards total offense for the game compared to 488 yards of offense for Houston.

A good effort by the team, a great student body turn out, and a night of memories for all.
