DWU Demolishes "Road" Game At Dakota Dome



Bookmark and Share

VERMILLION, S.D. – The Dakota Wesleyan University football team bounced back from its season-opening loss and started the Great Plains Athletic Conference season with a huge win Saturday afternoon, downing Briar Cliff University 56-15 in the DakotaDome in Vermillion, S.D.

 

DWU (1-1 overall, 1-0 GPAC) led 13-0 after the first quarter and exploded for 29 points in the second half en route to a 42-7 halftime lead. DWU added 14 more points in the fourth quarter. The Tigers’ offense was as strong as its defense Saturday afternoon; DWU ran for 250 and held the Chargers (0-2, 0-1) to 85 yards on the ground. The Tigers also held a 342-252 edge in passing yards on Briar Cliff.

 

The Tigers scored on their first drive of the game on a 30-yard pass from Jon Bane to Anthony Muilenburg. The Tiger defense forced BCU to punt on its first drive, and the DWU offense answered with a 45-yard drive that ended in a one-yard touchdown run by Francois Barnaud to put the Tigers up 13-0.

 

That’s where the score stayed to end the first, but Matt McManus intercepted a Kevin Van Egdom pass to start the second and the Tigers capitalized with a 20-yard field goal by Dan Porter. DWU forced Briar Cliff to punt on its next drive, and Arthur Brown caught an 87-yard touchdown pass from Bane on the Tigers’ first play of the drive to go up 23-0. Andrew DeVaney recorded an interception for a 72-yard touchdown run two drives later, and the Chargers fumbled on their own 31-yard line on the kickoff and DWU responded with a 16-yard touchdown run by Barnaud two plays later.

 

The Chargers got on the board late in the second on a 25-yard pass from Van Egdom to Brett Van Muyden, but the Tigers fumbled the ball on the kickoff and Briar Cliff recovered. DWU, however, answered with an interception by Trevin Island on Van Egdom’s first pass of the series, and DWU put together an 80-yard drive capped by a two-yard touchdown pass from Bane to Eric Lundberg.

 

Neither team scored again until the fourth quarter when Brady Bonte intercepted a pass and returned it 64 yards for a touchdown on the Chargers’ first series of the quarter. Barnaud scored DWU’s final touchdown of the game with just under 10 minutes left to play on a 63-yard run to make it 56-7, and the Chargers scored once more on a 17-yard touchdown pass from Alec Dutko to Matt Harshman.

 

Bane finished the day 16-for-28 for 342 yards, three touchdowns and one interception. Barnaud ran the ball 26 times for 189 yards and three touchdowns. Brown caught three passes for 106 yards and a score, and Muilenburg had three catches for 92 yards and a touchdown. Sam Kiger, Trevin Island and Charles LaRoche led the defense with five tackles each. Matt Tuttle had two tackles for a loss and Jeff Maassen had 1.5 tackles for a loss. The Tigers finished the day with 592 yards of total offense and held Briar Cliff to 337.

 

The Tigers are back on the road Saturday, Sept. 21 when they travel to Orange City, Iowa, to take on No. 13 Northwestern College – which lost 34-27 to No. 20 Doane Saturday.
