The Marble Falls football team sent the class of 2020 out with a 28-21 victory on Friday night over Cedar Creek in Bastrop.

The Mustangs (2-8, 2-5) picked off the Eagles quarterback three times and used some trickery to secure their second win of the season.

With under five minutes remaining in the game, Head Coach Brian Herman called a fake quick punt, and sophomore quarterback Jake Becker delivered a 38-yard touchdown strike to senior wide receiver Warren Cuplin.

The Mustang D forced a punt, and the Mustangs' running game sealed the victory.

On the 43-man roster, 21 players are graduating seniors, but several key role players, including Becker, will be potentially returning to the team next season with a year of Slot-T knowledge under their belt.
