Mustangs get win at Ashbrook

Cole Barber ran for 133 yards and a touchdown and East Lincoln improved to 2-0 with a 20-7 win over Ashbrook Friday night in Gastonia.

After the Green Wave tied the game at seven all right before the end of the first half, the Mustangs shut out Ashbrook in the second half and got scores from Mikivi Phinx and Barber to secure the win.

East Lincoln will take on North Gaston this Friday in Denver in their home opener, while Ashbrook (0-2) will also be at home to take on undefeated Clover.
