Sept. 7, 2017Game | Football
Northwest Missouri State football kept its program-record 31-game win streak alive Thursday night with a 20-14 road victory over Washburn.
The six-point win is the narrowest margin of victory for the Bearcats (2-0) since September 19, 2015 when they had to overcome a 10-point 2nd half deficit to beat Central Missouri 34-30.
The Northwest defense was potent once again limiting Washburn to just 217 yards of total offense, and success on just 2-10 third down attempts. Junior defensive back Anthony Lane also ended an Ichabod drive deep in Bearcat territory with his first interception of the season.
The 'Cats weren't as prolific in week two as they were in the opener, but they came through with a couple big drives in the second half to put the game out of reach.
On the first possession of the second half, Northwest drove 78 yards on 9 plays capped with a 14-yard touchdown pass from Zach Martin to Shawn Bane to open a 12-0 lead.
After Lane's interception late in the third quarter, Northwest capitalized with a 10-play, 87 yard drive that resulted in a one-yard touchdown plunge for Cameron Wilcox to extend the lead to 20-7.
