PITTSFIELD, Maine — Junior running back Jonathan Santiago scored four touchdowns and sophomore quarterback Greg Vigue threw three touchdown passes as Maine Central Institute ran its record to 4-0 with a 67-18 win over Mount View of Thorndike.
Mount View fell to 2-2.
MCI scored 48 first-half points.
“We came out and played hard. The defense set the tone with its physical play in the first quarter and our offense put it all together in the second quarter. We had a great second quarter. We had some big plays. We also forced some turnovers,” said MCI coach Tom Bertrand.
Santiago opened the scoring with a five-yard run in the first quarter before Vigue found junior wide receiver Austin Tolman with a 30-yard TD pass to expand the lead.
Santiago made it 21-0 with a 27-yard run before Ken McGray tossed a 51-yard pass to Will Rogers for the Mustangs’ first TD.
Vigue and Tolman hooked up on a 34-yard TD pass; Santiago scampered 23 yards for another score and Tanner Littlefield scored from five yards out before Mount View’s Jack Axsom ran two yards for a TD.
But Santiago returned the ensuing kickoff 78 yards for his fourth touchdown of the half.
Littlefield’s 31-yard run; Vigue’s 17-yard pass to Mitchell Hallee and Eric Hathaway’s 18-yard run capped the scoring for MCI before Axsom ran for a five-yard TD.
