River Oaks

Freshman Maddox Mandino scored two fourth quarter touchdowns on a long reception and a pick-6 as Glenbrook came from behind to defeat River Oaks 34-23 Friday night.

River Oaks led 23-13 at halftime of its homecoming game, but was unable to match the Apaches’ depth in the final 24 minutes.

Franklin Simpson’s four-yard run put the Mustangs in front 6-0 in the first quarter.

On to the second quarter, Ousman Amadou-ide scored from 17 yards out and Nick Parrino knocked the extra point through to make it 13-0.

Powell’s four-yard run trimmed the deficit to 13-6.

Parrino answered quickly and emphatically with an 82-yard kickoff return as River Oaks stretched its lead to 20-6.

Glenbrook drew within 20-13 on DJ Carter’s 12-yard run and Mandio’s PAT.

Parrino’s 27-yard field enabled the Mustangs to carry a 23-13 lead into recess.

Carter’s four-yard touchdown carry brought the visitors within 23-20 as the third quarter drew to a close.

Jackson’s 39-yard TD toss to Mandino gave Glenbrook its first lead, 27-23.

Mandino solidified the victory with a 20-yard interception return to conclude the scoring.

Powell completed 14-of-26 passes for 194 yards and a touchdown as the Apaches (5-2) out-gained the Mustangs 308-261. Mandino had six receptions for 126 yards and converted 4-of-5 extra point tries.

River Oaks (1-7) is paired against Copiah Academy on Friday night in Gallman, Miss., before closing out the season at home against Brookhaven (Miss.) on Oct. 25.
