He secured the Wheaton win when he deflected an Augustana pass on fourth down in the closing seconds to stop the Vikings' final offensive play.

S Kevin Gerhart, Sr., Wilkes
Gerhart picked off two passes, including one he returned 100 yards for a touchdown, and posted six tackles to help Wilkes to a 31-14 win against Lycoming.

CB Zack Corpe, Fr., Franklin
Corpe returned two interceptions for touchdowns (of 21 and 45 yards) in a 69-10 win at Anderson. Corpe made six tackles, five solo, and had two pass breakups.

Roche made four field goals to help Wheaton to a 20-14 victory at Augustana. He was 4-for-4 on the day, with a 25-yarder in the first quarter.
