Plovers hang on to beat Seminoles

Mobridge (UPI): Things got a little dicey on Saturday for the North Central South Dakota Polytechnic Institute (Norcentral) Freaking Plovers. Norcentral held on in the second half to beat the fourth ranked Florida State Seminoles by a score of 38-22.

The first half appeared to be business as usual with the Mobridge Maulers taking a 21-0 lead into halftime.

The nature of the game completely flipped as the third quarter opened. The Seminoles intercepted Norcentral’s Dan Tyson twice, outscoring the Plover offense by 22-10.

The only Plover highlight of second half came with just over two minutes left in the game when strong safety Albert Tremblay took an interception 40 yards to the house.

Next week the Plovers visit #5 Navy.
