Eugene (FNN): An early snow arrived in Eugene on Saturday night. But it did not portend an early white Christmas for the Ducks as they were blitzed by the North Central South Dakota Polytechnic Institute (Norcentral) to the tune of 37-0.
Despite a bruised thigh that sidelined him for much of the first half, RB Seth Johnson racked up 115 yards and a TD on 16 carries. Gary Wood kept the Plover rushing game going with 77 yards on 11 carries. FB Charlie Browning rumbled for a mere 5 yards but they were good for 2 scores.
QB John Flowers completed 8 of 12 tosses for 203 yards and a TD. Deon Childress completed 2 of 2 for 23 yards and a TD in mop up duty.
Next week the Mobridge Maulers return home to host unranked Nebraska.
