Plovers Edge Nittany Lions

Mobridge (AP): North Central South Dakota Polytechnic Institute (Norcentral) opened their 2021 home season at John Reid Field at Cold War Memorial Stadium hosting the Penn State Nitany Lions. After sputtering through the first half, the Freaking Plovers pulled away to a to a 29-13 win.

Penn State drew first blood on their first possession of the game made possible by an interception at their own 8 yard line. Both teams were sloppy in the first half, tossing up 2 interceptions each.

It was not until the waning seconds of the half for the Plovers to respond with a score of their own plus the 2 point try.

It was more like business as usual in the second half with the Mobridge Maulers scoring thrice to wrap up the win.

After that appalling first half senior John Flowers completed 4 of 7 passes for 129 yards and 2 TD.

Senior Seth Johnson rushed for 189 yards on 26 carries with 1 TD.

Head Football Coach and Chancellor (for life), Gomer S. Blake was seen leaving the stadium immediately at the conclusion of the game. He has not returned our phone calls and text messages.

Next week Norcentral hosts Notre Dame.

Plovers Wreck Georgia Tech

Atlanta (AP): For the second week in a row, the North Central South Dakota Polytechnic Institute (Norcentral) Freaking Plovers visited the Peach State. This time they faced and overwhelmed second ranked Georgia Tech by a score of 49-0.

Rock solid play by senior John Flowers has apparently ended Norcentral’s controversial quarterback controversy. Flowers completed 6 of 9 passes for 162 yards and 4 TD. Last week’s starter, Deon Childress was a perfect 3 for 3 for 34 yards and 1 TD in second half mop up duty.

Senior Seth Johnson rushed for 112 yards on 14 carries.

The Plover defense completely stuffed the Georgia Tech triple option offense to pitch their first shutout of the season.

Plover Head Football Coach and Chancellor (for life), Gomer S. Blake held a brief press conference after the game.

“We played very excellently today. Flowers was super at directing the team and protecting the ball. The ball is our most precocious procession. I got to go. Let’s win!”

On Saturday the Mobridge Maulers host #13 Penn State.
