Citizen Staff Writer



Mountain View used a spirited second half to defeat Buena and move above .500 on Friday night.

The Mountain Lions (3-2) shut down the Colts offense and scored the final 16 points of the game to win 22-12.

Myles Williams broke a tie at 12 with a 37-yard TD run in the fourth quarter. Two plays later, the Lions’ Andre Peterson sacked Billy Grant in the end zone for a safety to cap the scoring.

Williams rushed 14 times for 83 yards; teammate Eric Davis had 206 yards on 27 carries.

“Eric did a good job,” Williams said. “They gave it to him a lot early on, then late in the game they gave me the ball and told me to be a power back.”

Buena led 6-0 at the end of the first quarter, but the Mountain Lions tied it with a C.J. Evenson 1-yard quarterback sneak early in the second quarter.

The ensuing drive saw Buena march up the field to retake the lead. DeChe Miburn caught a jump ball and rumbled 45 yards, and Grant later found Ryan Witt for a 10-yard touchdown pass to give the Colts a 12-6 halftime lead.

Mountain View tied the game on its second drive of the third quarter.

Davis burst through the line for a 24-yard gain and two plays later Evenson hit Williams on a 12-yard slant pass.

Davis added a 35-yard run that got the Mountain Lions down to the 3-yard line, where Evenson capped it off on the next play with a quarterback draw for the tying score.

“They competed and came back in the second half,” said Mountain View coach Paul Schmidt.

Mountain View outgained the Colts 413-130, holding Buena to 18 yards on the ground. The Mountain Lions racked up 295 rushing yards.
