Football: Prosser's rally falls short at Ellensburg

October 5, 2013 

Prosser dug itself too deep of a hole to rally out of Friday, falling 52-43 to Ellensburg in a battle of top 10 2A teams.

The Mustangs fell behind 38-7 at halftime on the road in CWAC action. Ellensburg led 45-14 in the third quarter before Prosser started its charge.

JJ Martin caught a 23-yard touchdown pass from Mason Schutt and Cardell Jones a 24-yard TD pass to make it 45-28.

Gabe Caskey then scored on a 1-yard run for Ellensburg for a 52-28 lead, but Jones caught a 16-yard touchdown and Ethan Hibbs had a 25-yard touchdown reception for the final score.

Prosser recovered a pair of onside kicks in the final frantic minutes.

Prosser 0 7 7 29 — 43

Ellensburg 14 24 7 7 — 52
