Mobridge (AP): The North Central South Dakota Polytechnic Institute (Norcentral) Freaking Plovers met the University of Arkansas on Saturday afternoon in Mobridge. The Razorbacks would rather have skipped this one as they got slapped down by the Plovers by a score of 56-14.
Plover QB John Flowers showed how the game works, completing 13 of 20 passes for 461 yards and 6 TD. WR Kyle Powell hauled in 3 of those throws for 165 yards and 2 scores in the first half. In the second half he was blanketed by the Razorback secondary which allowed WR Gavin Williams to run rampant. The 6”-1”, 207 lb junior from El Paso, Tx. caught 6 passes for a whopping 256 yards and 4 TD.
Seth Johnson ran for 78 yards and 2 TD.
The Plover defense showed some shakiness in the third quarter giving up long passing gains or 83 and 65 yards, leading to 2 Razorback TD.
Next week the Plovers host #11 Florida State.
