OSCEOLA — Prairie City-Monroe’s Mustangs dusted themselves off from last week’s disappointing loss to Albia and rolled over Class 2A, District 6 rival Clarke 48-7 on Friday night, improving their record to 4-0 away from Monroe.
Blake McWilliams carried the ball 15 times for 143 yards, including a 17-yard touchdown run, but most of the scoring came on the back of junior Ronnie Marshall.

Luke Cummings had one run of 23 yards. Jaret Maggard carried the ball four times for 34 yards.
Sophomore quarterback Logan Gilman threw sparingly, but he was effective on the ground. Gilman was 3-for-9 with a touchdown throwing and had 36 yards and a touchdown on the ground. His connections were Zach Uhlenhopp, who caught two passes for 52 yards, and Ricky Reeve, who had a 15-yard touchdown catch.
