BRONX, NEW YORK, OCTOBER 9- In need of a win, Truman High School hosted the winless John Adams High School on a misty and soggy afternoon.
The 1-3 Truman Mustangs had not won since opening week, but their fortunes looked good as they opened the game with a touchdown on a kickoff return and added another touchdown in the first quarter off a threeyard touchdown run.
The run came on the heels of an Adams turnover as Truman gained possession on a fumble at midfield giving the Mustangs a 12-0 lead at halftime.
Despite a 16 point fourth quarter push from Adams, Truman would hold on for an 18-16 victory.
The Mustangs travel to Staten Island for a Friday evening match-up with Tottenville October 11th. Game-time is at 7pm.
