In a highly-anticipated match-up in Northern B football, No. 3 Malta took down rival No. 5 Glasgow 37-6 on the road.

With Northern B in the balance, this was a big game heading in, but the Mustangs jumped out to a 24-0 lead on the backs of their defense causing three turnovers in the first half.

Tatum Hansen would be the lone scorer for the Scotties.

Running back Rex Williamson would also have himself a game amassing 237 yards on the ground as the Mustangs came into hostile territory and took care of business to knockoff a ranked team in Class B as they take on Fairfield in another big game for the Mustangs next week.

The Scotties beat Fairfield two weeks ago so a win over the 6-1 Eagles would solidify them as the top team in Northern B. Glasgow takes on Wolf Point next week as well.

the 6-0 (3-0 in conference) Malta traveled 70 miles down the road to take on their rival the 6-1 (3-0) Glasgow Scotties.
