Rams have no answer for unstoppable Stags

November 1, 2011

The Deer Park football team had to rewrite its record book following a convincing 44-13 non-league win over Riverside on Friday.
The Stags, who saw Zach Mohr kick a school record 51-yard field goal in the second quarter, also used the offensive outburst to set a school mark for most points in a season (324). The win improved Deer Park’s overall record to 8-1, which tied the 1992 Stags for the best season start in school history after nine games.
“You never know how it’s going to go,” said Deer Park head coach Keith Stamps on his team’s strong start.
