Freshman QB Jake Morse got the scoring started early in the first quarter when he scrambled nine yards for the first touchdown of the game.
Less than five minutes later Jake Morse found Jesse Green for a short touchdown to put the Wildcats ahead 13-0.
“I think we’re getting to where we need to be,” said head coach Mike Grossner. “We established ourselves early and never looked back.”
Aaron Terrill and Scott Meyer rushed for a combined 157 yards with two touchdowns.
“Our goal was to stop the run and run it at them,” the Wildcat coach said.
Xavier Lewis highlighted the evening when he returned an Andrew Korth kickoff for a record tying 99 yards to put the Wildcats ahead 27-17.
“That was our knockout punch,” Grossner said. “I think from that point on we controlled the ballgame.”
The Wildcats will be idle next weekend before they travel to Culver-Stockton College (0-2) on Oct. 2.View the full box score here.
