Woodward, Okla. — MUTUAL - Sharon-Mutual wasted little time in dispatching the Corn Bible Academy Crusaders 48-0 at Jack Braud Field Friday night.

Cooper Free got the scoring started with a 54-yard touchdown run on the fourth play of the game. John Custar ran in the conversion.

On the Trojans third possession, Free broke free on a 46-yard touchdown run to make it 22-0.
