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.

Earlier this week, Steinmetz Stadium was packed for the girls' soccer rivalry of Bluffton and Allen East. BHS won 4-1.
Senior Captain and Keeper, Jadyn Barhorst, blocked numerous attempts by the AE offense, but the tide turned 17 minutes in to the game when Senior Sarah Theisen received a pass from Senior Captain Sydney Staton and took it the rest of the way down the field for goal 1.
With 16 minutes left in the first half, a hand ball in the box called on Allen East gave Bluffton another chance, and Theisen sinks it in the back of the net for goal 2.
