Mervo took away the pass­ing game from host Dou­glass and re­lied on its run­ning game to upset the Ducks, 14-6, in foot­ball Fri­day.

The Mus­tangs im­proved to 2-2 and 1-1 in Bal­ti­more City Divi­sion I; Dou­glass fell to 3-1 and 2-1.

“We did a great job of tak­ing away the deep-ball game of Dou­glass,” Mervo coach Pa­trick Nixon said. “Run­ning the foot­ball is what we do. But I have to credit our of­fen­sive line for block­ing and pass pro­tec­tion.”

Nixon sin­gled out right tackle Tavon Terry for his work on the of­fen­sive line.

Mervo scored in the sec­ond quar­ter when Rykim Lemon had a 5-yard touch­down run and Ar­marni Ad­di­son kicked the point af­ter touch­down. The Mus­tangs’ sec­ond score came in the third quar­ter when Khalil New­ton caught a 30-yard touch­down pass from Carlos Davis and Ad­di­son added the ex­tra point.

The Ducks were score­less un­til the fourth quar­ter.
