Jays lose football opener, stay hot on volleyball court

North Dakota State College of Science scored 17 unanswered points in a stretch of a little over eight minutes during the third and fourth quarters, breaking open a close game to lead the Wildcats to a 29-9 victory over Minnesota West on Saturday afternoon.

A 43-yard TD run by Roosevelt Cage on the third play of the game and a five-yard scoring run from Chandler Ross less than a minute into the second quarter put NDSCS ahead of the Bluejays, 12-0, but Minnesota West – playing its season opener -- hung tough and got within 12-3 on a 30-yard Triston Sauerbrei field goal with just 10 seconds left in the first half.

Sauerbrei connected on field goals of 26 and 19 yards in the third quarter to make it a 12-9 game, but the Wildcats got a 78-yard pass play from Drew Boxwell to Trevion Carothers with 2:21 to go in the third for a 10-point lead. A field goal and two-yard plunge by NDSCS’s Makhi Jackson closed out the scoring.

Bluejay QB Breyer Hieronimus of Adrian completed 21-of-38 passes for 205 yards in the game while throwing one pick. Rejiwon Dupree led the rushing game with 14 carries for 49 yards, and Joshua Yarbrough was the top Minnesota West receiver with 85 yards on seven catches. Aidan Bradshaw’s 10 total tackles placed the Bluejays defensively; Tyler Lange-Baillie and Darrick Baartman had eight total tackles each.
