Warriors Roll To Victory Over Gophers
It was a quick start for the Warriors, who forced a turnover on the first offensive play of the game, and three plays later it was a touchdown strike from Owen King to Jordan Berg to give the Warriors a 6-0 lead.
On the ensuing kickoff, Ben Ihrke took it to the house from 87 yards away to tie things up at 6. Unfortunately for the Gophers, the Warriors high-powered offense took over, and King was phenomenal through the air.
King hit seven different receivers, threw six touchdowns and led the Warriors to a 42-13 victory. Andrew Goergen had nine catches and two touchdowns to lead the pass catchers of the Warriors, while Berg, and Kyle Cavanaugh had nice games as well.
The offense was humming as the Warriors led 20-6 at the break, and use a quick strike in the third quarter to Mason Staggemeyer to put it out of reach.
The Gophers played really well against the run, but struggled to stop the passing game of the Warriors. The Gophers run defense was led by Kyle Nosbisch, Carter Fishbaugher and Cole Asleson. These guys were all over the place defensively and really did a great job of stopping the run.
The Warriors stuffed the Gophers run game, and forced them into 3rd and long many times, really taking away any offensive momentum the Gopher could put together. A late touchdown run from Ihrke, his second of the game, made the score 42-13, but it was the Warriors dominating throughout.
