Marble Falls' trip to Gupton Stadium turned out to be a rough one.

The Mustangs gave up 17 yards play in the first half and Vista Ridge scored on its first five possessions to take command and handed Marble Falls a 49-21 defeat in the District 25-5A opener for both teams.

Quarterback Matt Snow, a 6-1, 185-pound junior, made Marble Falls night miserable with 14 carries for 147 yard rushing. He scored twice on runs of 40 and five yards.

Vista Ridge (4-0) jumped to the early lead with an 11-play, 73-yard march the first time the Rangers had the ball.

On the next four possessions, the Rangers snapped the ball just 12 times and came away with a 35-0 lead with nine minutes let in the second quarter.

The Mustangs (2-2) climbed back, but still trailed 42-14 at halftime.

Marble Falls defensive coordinator Chad Bishop said freeing up the linebackers will be a key to the success of this year’s defense.
The Mustangs have some solid linebackers in Travis Dilworth, Jeff Ramey and Chris Carter.
Dilworth is a veteran and has impressed in preseason workouts.
“Travis is going to be good,’’ Bishop said. “He has good ball skills and he is aggressive.’’
Carter gives the defense some versatility with his ability to play outside and man the end position on different calls.
“He’s hard to block,’’ Bishop said.
