A successful debut

Mustangs show off new look with big CIC win
Chugiak linebacker Justin Benzel pounces on South quarterback Zachary Lujan during the Mustangs’ 21-18 Cook Inlet Conference win at Tom Huffer Sr. Stadium on Saturday, Aug. 13. Benzel had three quarterback sacks in the game to lead a Chugiak defense that also forced three turnovers, including a 95-yard interception return for a touchdown by cornerback Deven Ferriss.

Chugiak’s fall debut was a smashing success Saturday night as the new-look Mustangs fashioned a 21-18 Cook Inlet Conference football win over South at Tom Huffer Sr. Stadium.

“This year we’ve got a few more weapons,” said Mustangs coach Duncan Shackelford, who rotated a half-dozen running backs into the game.
