CARLISLE — South Western but moved the ball at will against Carlisle on Friday night, but the Mustangs gave up several big plays on defense and dropped a 21-9 decision.

South Western (1-2 ) got good running back production from Thaddeus Davis and DeLunche Shaw and some aerial yards from Drew Hartlaub, but the Mustangs couldn’t find the end zone. Shaw and Davis combined for 104 yards rushing. Hartlaub caught three passes for 34 yards and rushed nine times for 14 yards.

The Mustangs started the game with a 13-play drive that resulted in a fumbled snap on a field goal attempt. Nate Van Campen intercepted a Thundering Herd pass, but Carlisle snuffed out a fake punt attempt by the Mustangs.

Gavyn Barnes raced 42 yards with pitchout when he appeared to be stopped in the backfield before Eric Harris took a bootleg 3 yards for a score.

Prince Gaye took a Herd handoff through the middle, cut left and outraced the Mustang secondary for a 40-yard score.

“I told the kids I was very proud of their effort and intensity,” Mustang coach Damion Poalucci said. “I don’t know that they stopped us very often: We stopped ourselves with fumbles, bad reads, or penalties. We also didn’t do a good job of tackling. We were in position to make the plays but we didn’t get the ball carrier to the ground. We did play good defense overall.”

Barnes raced 56 yards with the second half kickoff before Harris found Nate Barnes from 39 yards out for a score on the first play of the second half.

South Western got on the board when Van Campen snuck one in from the 1-yard line.

The Mustangs later had a first down at the Carlisle 10 but couldn’t punch it in.

Harris fumbled a punt in the end zone and had to fall on it for a safety in the final minute.

“We didn’t play well at all and it certainly wasn’t pretty,” Carlisle head coach Pat Conrad said. “We did do a good job of tackling, but they did a really good job of coming out in a different front and forced us to adjust to them. They ran the ball down our throats but we ended up making some good defensive plays to keep them out of the end zone. We do need to do a better job of stopping the penalties and silly plays if we want to keep winning games.”
