No. 8 Gorillas Pull Away for 38-17 Victory Over Pesky Tigers

Updated:

HAYS, Kan. -- Paul Robinson recovered a fumble that set up a score and returned an interception 37 yards for another touchdown as No. 8 Pitt State pulled away in the third quarter for a 45-17 victory over Fort Hays State Saturday (Oct. 8) at Lewis Field Stadium.

The Gorillas (6-0, 5-0 MIAA) led just 17-10 at halftime against the upset-minded Tigers (2-4, 2-3 MIAA), but Pitt State scored three times in the decisive third quarter to pull away.

Robinson's fumble recovery set up Bristan Kelley's 4-yard touchdown pass from Zac Dickey to give Pitt State a 31-17 lead. A handful of plays later he jumped in front of an Anthony Sheppard pass and returned it 34 yards for a touchdown and a 38-17 advantage.

Briceton Wilson rushed 35 times for 189 yards and two touchdown to pace the Gorillas ground game, which chewed up a season-high 343 yards.

Dickey rushed 17 times for 90 yards and he completed 10 of 15 passes for 159 yards. He completed three passes for 76 yards to Andrew Castaneda and four more to John Thomas for 64 yards.

Nate Dreiling made a team-leading 11 tackles for the Pitt State defense, which limited FHSU to 172 total yards in the contest (76 rushing).

Approximately 1,000 fans viewed the game on the Jungletron at Carnie Smith Stadium.

The Gorillas return home to host MIAA rival Lincoln next Saturday (Oct. 15) for Homecoming. Kickoff is set for 2 p.m. (CDT).
