From the 2, Kyle Wisnieski handed the ball on second-and-goal to senior back Miguel Villar-Perez, who blasted through a hole in the line for a Mansfield touchdown.

But a flag (illegal shift) negated the score, pushing the Hornets back 5 yards.

Wisnieski went to Villar-Perez again.

Pressured in the pocket, the senior quarterback lobbed a high pass as he was falling backwards to the left corner of the end zone for Villar-Perez, who made the catch and dropped to his knees for a touchdown with 1:24 left in the first half Friday night.

With Villar-Perez scoring three touchdowns, Mansfield moved to 4-0 with a 49-42 win over Attleboro. He is sixth in Division 2 scoring with six touchdowns for 36 points.
