Mobridge (AP): On Saturday North Central South Dakota Polytechnic Institute (Norcentral) hosted Notre Dame at John Reid Field at Cold War Memorial Stadium. The Freaking Plovers handed the Fighting Irish a cold 42-0 beatdown.
The Plover defense played flawlessly, holding the Irish to a paltry 43 yards of total offense in the shutout.
On offense, the Plovers resorted to a run oriented ball control scheme, passing only 6 times in the contest. 5 were completed for 234 yards and 4 touchdowns.
Seth Johnson carried the ball 18 times for 121 yards and 2 scores. True freshman Aaron Wilson contributed 72 yards on 12 carries.
Next week Norcentral travels to Arkansas for a conference clash with the Razorbacks.
