The Kennesaw Mountain Mustangs (4-5) delivered an impressive win over the Osborne Cardinals (1-9) on Friday night. Ending the regular season with a 60-7 win pushes Kennesaw Mountain into the postseason for the first time in school history.
The game began quickly when the Cardinals moved the ball down the field in just under a minute and scored on the first drive of the game. This early touchdown would be their only score of the night.
After their first extra point attempt was no good, Kennesaw Mountain decided to try for a 2-point conversion on their second touchdown. Running back TJ Jenkins threw the pass, but it was ruled incomplete.
The Mustangs continued their scoring streak when sophomore Jailen Taylor returned a punt for 70 yards resulting in another touchdown. Later in the second quarter, Jenkins also had a 70-yard run for a touchdown.
After Kennesaw Mountain took a 33-point lead over Osborne, the Cardinals attempted a field goal. The kick fell just short of the post.
The Mustangs kept the heat in the second half with Jenkins scoring again just under three minutes into the third quarter.
A scuffle between the two teams on the field at the end of the third resulted in four Osborne players and two Kennesaw players receiving personal foul penalties for targeting.
The last touchdown scored of the night by the Mustangs ended with a blocked PAT, but still allowed for a 53-point win.
This 6A regional match-up left Osborne with a 0-8 conference record. Kennesaw Mountain ends the regular season 4-3 in the division.
Kennesaw has won 4 of their last 5 games and they look to continue this momentum going into the postseason. With Allatoona beating Pope on the road, this win gives the Mustangs the #4 seed in the playoffs.
