For a team known for its passing attack, East Rowan running back Max Wall got the job done on the ground Friday in the Mustangs’ 3A state playoff upset at West Henderson.

Wall ran for 161 yards on 27 carries as East Rowan raced out to a 27-7 first-half lead. The Mustangs won, 27-21, to advance to the 3A state quarterfinals.

Wall’s first score put the Mustangs ahead, 12-0, in the second quarter. Later in the period, he found paydirt again to give the Mustangs a three-touchdown lead, going into halftime.
