Stevenson 13, Albright 6

The Mustangs improved to 4-0 for the first time ever by winning a second straight defensive slugfest on the road.  This time, they held off Albright despite amassing only 39 passing yards.  An all-offense, no-defense outfit during their first two seasons, the Mustangs now appear to be hurtling towards the other extreme.  They haven't scored more than 20 points in a game since the opener and continue to shuttle quarterbacks in and out (they've used three thus far).  But the D continues to play remarkably well, having surrendered no more than 14 points in the first four games.

Now comes the real test -- a road game at Lycoming, ranked #25 nationally in Division 3.  I'm pleased to note that the Lycoming Web site calls the matchup of unbeatens "the first big benchmark game" for the Warriors in 2014.  It's rather nice to have ascended to "benchmark" status.  Now, let's see if the Mustangs can take that next step.
