Wayne State defeats Winston-Salem 21-14
Quarterback Mickey Mohner passed for one touchdown and ran for
another as Wayne State defeated previously unbeaten Winston-Salem
State 21-14 in the Division II semifinals on Saturday.
Mohner hit Josh Renel with a 25-yard touchdown pass on the first
series of the game, then sneaked for a 1-yard touchdown in the
second quarter as the Warriors jumped out to a 14-0 lead and stayed
in control the rest of the way.
The victory moved Wayne State (12-3) into next Saturday’s
Division II championship game in Florence, Ala., against the winner
of Saturday night’s game between Delta State and Pittsburg (Kans.)
Winston-Salem State (13-1) came into the game averaging 42.8
points per game but managed a season-low 14 points. Wayne State’s
defense had one goal-line stand and Andrew Matt also returned a
fumble to the 1-yard line, where Chet Privett scored to make it
21-7 in the third quarter.
