FAIRFIELD – It was a good road trip on Friday for the Moundridge football team as they got back into the win column by throttling Fairfield 49-0.

Landon Kaufman opened the scoring in the first quarter for the Wildcats when he took a short pass from Henry Hecox six yards into the endzone. Joseph Schrag kicked the extra point and Moundridge was up 7-0 early.

Kase Ptacek rambled sixty-five yards for a score before the end of the quarter, giving the Wildcats a 13-0 advantage.

Ptacek was the story for Moundridge in the second quarter as he scored on runs from one and four yards out, which combined with a two-point conversion run by Joaquin Huff and a two-point conversion pass to Logan Churchill from Henry Hecox, gave the Wildcats a commanding 29-0 lead heading into the halftime break.

Anthony Everhart and Joaquin Huff scored on runs of five and four yards which sandwiched an interception return for a score by Landon Kaufman in the third quarter, giving Moundridge the final 49-0 victory.

Defensively, the Wildcats held Fairfield to just 108 yards on forty-three offensive snaps, including just two-of-sixteen in the pass game while picking off four of those including the one that went for a score by Kaufman as well as interceptions by Barrett Moddelmog, Kase Ptacek, and Anthony Everhart. Fairfield was unable to run as well as the Wildcats held them to just two yards per each of their twenty-seven attempts to run the ball. Brayden Conquest was the leading tackler for Moundridge with 8.5 stops.

On offense, Kase Ptacek led Moundridge as he went over 100-yards again rushing, gaining 123 yards on just eleven carries while Henry Hecox completed seven-of-eleven passes for seventy-seven yards.

The Wildcats snapped a four-game losing streak and now stand 2-5 for the season as they prep to host Pretty Prairie next Friday in their final regular season game before the state playoffs. Pretty Prairie will come into the game 3-4 for the season after losing 68-22 Friday to Goessel.
