MUSTANG, Oklahoma – When Yukon and Mustang have met on the football field lately, it's been a scoring spree, and Friday was no exception.

The Millers used an explosive offense to take down Mustang 44-31 on the road in front of a standing room-only crowd.

Yukon quarterback Corbin Jones led an impressive charge to start the game, completing 12 of his first 13 passes.

A touchdown run from Austin Roberts followed by a 34-yard field goal from Andrus Perilla made it 17-0 Yukon.

The teams traded a pair of touchdowns and the Millers led 24-10 at the half.

In the third quarter, it appeared Yukon was poised to pull away, as Jones connected with Derek Deeds on another touchdown to make it 31-10.

Another touchdown pass from Jones found Austin Bebill to make it 38-17, and the Millers eventually took a 44-17 lead early in the fourth to essentially put the game out of reach.

Mustang brought out the theatrics with an attempted comeback toward the end. Travis Mitchell snagged a 76-yard touchdown pass as part of a couple of late Broncos scores, but the damage had already been done.

Yukon had been lighting the Broncos up through the air all night but managed to pull together a ground game when they needed it. The Millers managed to run down the clock to move to 1-0 in the young season.

Jones was the man of the hour with 252 yards and four passing touchdowns, completing 19-of-24 on the night.

Mustang (0-1) will hit the road to take on Putnam City North in week two.

Yukon will look to take its momentum into week two at home against Edmond Santa Fe.
