No. 15 Pitt State Rolls to 49-7 Win Over William Jewell

Updated:

PITTSBURG — Briceton Wilson scored three times to help lead No. 15 Pitt State to a 49-7 victory over William Jewell before a standing-room-only crowd of 9,355 fans at Brandenburg Field/Carnie Smith Stadium.

The Gorillas (4-0) rushed for a season-high 348 yards and piled up 555 yards of total offense in the contest, while the Pitt State defense limited the visiting Cardinals (1-3) to 82 rushing yards and 185 total yards overall.

Wilson scored on runs of one and four yards in the first half as the Gorillas built a 21-0 halftime advantage.

Zac Dickey also added a pair of touchdown runs, finishing with a game-high 97 yards on seven carries. He also completed seven of 10 passes for 89 yards, with a 14-yard third-quarter scoring connection to John Brown.

Anthony Abenoja added a 53-yard touchdown pass to Wilson late in the third quarter and Justin Woods capped the Gorillas scoring with a 23-yard touchdown scamper on his first career carry for Pitt State.

Defensively, Spencer Worthington made six tackles for the Gorillas, including three of Pitt State's seven quarterback sacks. Chas Smith added a team-leading eight stops with a QB sack and an interception.

The Cardinals broke up Pitt State's shutout bid when quarterback Sean Shelton capped a nine-play, 84-yard drive with a 1-yard plunge with 10:47 remaining in the game.

Shelton completed eight of 15 passes for 103 yards for WJC, while Glen Whitney paced the Cardinals rushing attack with 13 carries for 57 yards.

Pitt State will travel to Kansas City, Mo., to face No. 1 ranked NW Missouri State University in the Fall Classic at Arrowhead X next Saturday (Oct. 1). The Bearcats (4-0) rolled to a 70-17 home victory over Fort Hays State University Saturday.

Kickoff is set for 2:07 p.m. (CDT) with the game to be televised across the region on the MIAA Broadcasting Network.
