North Central College football team headed to Stagg Bowl again after beating Mary Hardin-Baylor
NAPERVILLE, Ill. (CBS) — The North Central College Cardinals football team will return to the NCAA Division III National Championship Game after beating Mary Hardin-Baylor on Saturday.
The Cardinals scored on their first drive as Alec Wolff completed a pass from QB Luke Lenhen. They quickly scored another touchdown afterwards, as Ethan Greenfield stayed on his feet and punched it in. The score was quickly 14-0 North Central.
The Mary Hardin-Baylor Crusaders were hanging around down 7 at the half. But the game ended in a dominating 49-14 victory for North Central.
Lehnen had four touchdown passes.
The Cardinals will now go back to the Stagg Bowl for the third time – this time under first-year coach Brad Spencer. Last year, North Central lost the Stagg Bowl to Mary Hardin-Baylor.
The Stagg Bowl is set for Friday evening. North Central will be up against the University of Mount Union.
