Fayette, Iowa - Max Martin booted a 47-yard field goal with 2:13 remaining to give Wayne State College a 17-14 win at Upper Iowa Saturday afternoon.
The Wildcats held a 388-294 edge in total offense over Upper Iowa. WSC rushed for 205 yards while gaining another 183 through the air with the Peacocks netting 115 yards rushing and 179 passing. Charlie Davidson ran for a career-high 150 yards on 36 carries to lead the Wildcats in rushing, his third straight 100-yard rushing effort. Brian Kent completed 19 of 24 passes for 183 yards with two interceptions, completing passes to six different Wildcat receivers. Sophomore Adam Stark had six catches for 50 yards followed by Cole McDaniel with five catches for 45 yards.
Defensively, junior safety Austan Pomajzl led Wayne State in tackles with eight followed by Richard Daniel and Benjamin Perry with five apiece. Daniel also had a fumble recovery for the Wildcats.
The win by Wayne State, now 6-4 overall, assures the Wildcats of a sixth straight winning season. In the 9797th season of football, WSC has never had six consecutive winning seasons until achieving the feat Saturday afternoon.
