Wildcats move to 2-0

2016-09-02 05.10.06-1 copyHARTINGTON — The Hartington-Newcastle offense looked to be in mid-season form Friday afternoon.

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.”
