The Govs get to experience the sweet joy of victory for the first time this season as they dominated the Culver-Stockton Wildcats, 56-0, on Saturday, Nov. 3.
The Govs coasted to 49-0 lead by half-time and got some bench players a little playing time. Quarterback Jake Ryan had an accurate night, going six of eight for 38 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions.
It became obvious early that a passing game wasn’t needed in this game, so the Govs mainly used their rushing game.
Sophomore runningback Ean Pemberton led the rushing attack with eight carries for 112 yards and two touchdowns.
The other players scoring on the ground were Jacob Sexton with a touchdown, Terrence Oliver added two touchdowns and Ashlon Adams piled on a touchdown. There were three other players that added to the rushing game for a total of 61 carries for 378 yards and six touchdowns.
The Wildcats quarterback Curtis Widener passed for 30 yards, connecting on five of his 13 attempts. Wide receiver Ronrico Ragsdale led the Wildcats receivers with two catches of 18 yards, and runningback Maurice Childs had 13 carries for 25 yards.
The Wildcats are 1-9 this season and play in the Heart of America Athletic conference out of Canton, MO.
The win moves APSU to 1-8, 0-6 on the season.
