“(I'm) just super proud that our guys stepped up, got another stop on defense, and then went down and scored on offense just to seal it,” Shaner said.
A safety on a fumbled Mascoutah punt snap completed the scoring.
Mt. Vernon's defense finished with five sacks. Robert Grider led the team with two.
“I thought our defense played their tails off,” Shaner said. “Our special teams were all solid.”
Demontez Miller-Gray led the rushing attack with 91 yards.
Mt. Vernon is 1-1 this season and hosts Triad on Friday.
