The third-ranked Hornets blew past Southwest 10 Conference opponent Decatur like a Corvette versus a Chevette Friday in Week 7 football action, winning 41-0 to remain undefeated.
Wyatt Cool rushed for four touchdowns and 157 yards, Corbin Weinberg added a five-yard TD en route to 62 yards, and Lincoln Crotser tacked on a six-yard TD run. Mendon totaled 378 rushing yards, with Austin Rensi producing 55, Sam Cleveland chipping in 39, and Hunter Lovell, Cole Decker, Logan Hunter, A.J. Voorde and Chris Rios combining for 59.
Rensi notched a team-best six tackles (one sack) to go with a fumble recovery, Cleveland (one interception), Weinberg, Cool and Mikki Feister each had five stops, and Hunter, Emmett Bingaman and Noah Slaughter all added five tackles apiece. Lovell also recorded an interception for the Hornets.
Mendon faces its first real test in Week 8 at fellow unbeaten Cassopolis, which is ranked No. 6 in Division 7, with a league championship on the line.
