In their heyday, Allen East football was known as a physical, fundamental squad that pounded the ball.
While elements of a power rushing game were still evident in the most recent meeting Friday night at Harmon Field, overall team speed and a dangerous passing attack led the Mustangs to a lopsided 40-7 win over the Pirates.
The dominant performance put a damper on Bluffton’s homecoming festivities which crowned senior Abbie Parkins queen and classmate Gabe Denecker king after a terrific, spirited parade through downtown Bluffton.
