And it was the home town kids….the NCHS Mustangs…that prevailed. Final score on the score board read 20 – 17 in an absolute battle of two well coached 4A football teams. Mustang’s Dan Reese buried Gillette senior running back Taylor Bigelow for a 4-yard loss with 16.8 seconds left in the game, putting the finishing touches on a battle of epic proportions. The Camels junior quarterback were able to torch the best defense in the state for 329 yards and a touchdown.
