Wildcats back in the win column
MOUNDRIDGE — After back-to-back district losses, the Moundridge High School football team put a stop to the bleeding with a 56-0 win over St. John on Friday night.
The Wildcats scored 30 in the first and 26 in the second as the game was over by halftime. Moundridge limited St. John to 16 total yards while compiling 178 yards themselves.
Collin Kohl only rushed six times, but scored on four and had 129 yards. Aaron Green scored a touchdown on his only rushing attempt, while Corbin Unruh found Jon Schlosser from 33 yards out for the other touchdown.
On defense, Schlosser led the team with 9.5 tackles and an interception. Schlosser also had four tackles for loss.
