The Wildcats raced past, through and around a much bigger Emerson-Hubbard team to claim a 54-18 win.
The Wildcat offense was once again led by quarterback Cole Schmidt, who carried the ball for 167 yards on just 20 carries and ran for three scores. He ripped off a 75-yard touchdown sprint just before the first half ended. Schmidt also threw the ball for 16 yards.
Hartington-Newcastle Co Head Coach and Offensive Coordinator Corey Uldrich said Schmidt’s big run was a real game changer for the Cats.
“Cole’s 75-yard run right before the half may have been the biggest play for us,” he said. “It provided some momentum into halftime.”
