MEDICINE LODGE – The only thing that went wrong on Friday for the Moundridge football team was the fact the stat person was late and missed much of the first quarter of play. Other than that, the Wildcats for the second week in a row found a bunch of offense and scored a 42-34 road victory over Medicine Lodge.

With the six touchdowns on Friday, the Wildcats have now scored 90 points in the last two outings after only finding the end zone for one score in their first two games.

After trailing 20-14 at the halftime break, Moundridge scored twice in each of the final two quarters while holding off Medicine Lodge late to score the eight-point win.

Braden Schmidt scored three times on runs of four, 13, and 24 yards while Brayden Conquest had one score and Corbin Unruh connected with Jon Schlosser for another touchdown. Due to the lateness of the stat keeper arriving, no names were recorded for the other Moundridge score.

The incomplete stats showed the Wildcats with an edge in total offense as they had 276 yards to Medicine Lodges 252, with the hosts getting 169 of those through the air.

Even with the missing half of the first quarter stats, Brayden Conquest had an outstanding night running the ball with 103 yards on 11 carries that were recorded while Schmidt had another 53 and Kase Ptacek had 50.

The incomplete stats showed the Joaquin Huff was a Wildcat with a mission on defense as he recorded 13 tackles of which 11 were solo.

Now that they have evened their season mark at 2-2, the Wildcats will look to continue the win streak next Friday, October 2, when they travel to Goessel. Goessel is just 1-3 for the season and lost on Friday, 42-14 to Argonia/Attica.
