North Central (Ill.) Athletics
NO. 9 NORTH CENTRAL (ILL.) 42, CARTHAGE 10  BOX SCORE
The game was scoreless through the end of the first quarter, although North Central had begun its first scoring drive late in the opening period. Jordan Tassio converted on two fourth-down conversion attempts, running for nine yards each time. Tassio's second fourth-down run left the Cardinals just four yards from the end zone, and he covered the remaining distance on the next play to wrap up a 16-play, 94-yard drive and get the Cardinals on the board. Tassio ran 13 times for 56 yards and 3 TDs. His 13 rushing touchdowns this season leave him one short of the Cardinals' single-season record.

NO. 3 ST. THOMAS 51, HAMLINE BOX SCORE
Two weeks ago against Gustavas, the Tommies recorded a school-record 12 sacks of quarterback Muresuk Mena, who lost 19 yards after coming into the game with a 117-yard rushing average. The Gusties had only 32 net yards in 42 rushes against the Tommies’ defense, which came into the game ranked No. 6 in Division III at 53.5 yards per game.

Last week, opponent Bethel managed just 44 offensive plays (six first downs) to the Tommies' 83 plays (25 first downs). It had the ball just 19:22 as St. Thomas had 40:38 in possession time. UST also limited the Royals to 1-of-11 on third downs, and has now held its six opponents to 26 percent on third-down conversions.

The defense wasn’t quite as dominating this week, giving up 210 yards, including 89 on the ground by Austin Duncan. But the Pipers struggled to move the ball consistently, converting only 3 of 19 third downs and punting eight times.
