Plovers Tame Wildcats

Mobridge (UPI):  Seth Johnson rushed 19 times for 169 yards and a TD while Aaron Wilson carried 18 times for 136 yards and another score to help top ranked North Central South Dakota Polytechnic Institute (Norcentral) Freaking Plovers beat number two Arizona by a score of 35-21.

Norcentral’s controversial quarterback controversy continued as freshman Joe Howard drew the start. Howard completed 4 of 4 passes for 138 yards and 3 TD.

The Wildcats mounted a second half rally, closing within a TD of the Mobridge Maulers in the 4th quarter. The Plovers put it away for good when Wilson punched the ball in with just under 2 minutes remaining in the game.

The Plovers are off next week, returning on October 23 to host LSU.
