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.

Plovers Roast Razorbacks

Fayetteville (UPI):  Junior halfback Aaron Wilson rushed for 183 yards and a TD on 23 carries while Senior Seth Johnson followed up with 146 yards and 2 TD on 17 carries as the North Central South Dakota Polytechnic Institute (Norcentral)  dropped the maul on the Arkansas Razorbacks by a score of 42-7.

The running game was so successful that the Freaking Plovers only threw 2 passes on the afternoon. QB John Flowers connected on both for touchdowns of 42 and 40 yards.

The Plover defense stonewalled the Arkansas offense except for a coverage bust in the second quarter allowing the Hogs a 49 yard strike.

The Mobridge Maulers controlled the game and dominated the clock. Arkansas only mustered 123 yards of total offense.

It is unexplained why Head Football Coach and Chancellor (for life), Gomer S. Blake wore a disguise during the game and immediately disappeared in a puff of smoke upon the final gun.

Next week the Freaking Plovers host #2 Arizona.
