More news about: Carthage
The Carthage College football team (3-0) closed out its non-conference schedule on Saturday, Sept. 18 with a 51-3 win over Concordia University (Wis., 0-3) at Century Stadium in Mequon, Wis. Carthage jumped out to a 17-0 lead in the first period. Tyler Funk booted a 52-yard field goal at 11:58, before quarterback Evan Jones hooked up with Chris Schulz on a 46-yard touchdown pass at 7:21. Funk missed the extra point. Jake Smith caught a 63-yard touchdown pass from Jones at 1:07 for the 17-0 margin. 
 
Concordia's Dan Winsey kicked a 23-yard field goal at 3:42 second period to put the Falcons on the scoreboard. Jones hooked up with Jerome Brown Jr. on a 26-yard TD pass at 1:59, and the Red Men led, 24-3, at halftime. The Red Men scored 17 points in the third quarter to take a 41-3 lead. Funk kicked a 29-yard field goal at 13:53. Jake Smith scored on a three-yard run at 11:51, and Chris Schulz caught a four-yard pass from Evan Jones at 7:44. Carthage tacked on 10 final points in the fourth quarter for the final, 51-3 margin. Steve Jones ran for a three-yard TD at 13:38, and Tyler Funk connected on a third field goal, this one a 22-yarder, at 1:24.
 
The Red Men rolled up 590 total offensive yards, 162 rushing and 428 passing, while Concordia (Wis.) had just 85 total yards, 22 on the ground and 63 in the air. Carthage collected 22 first downs to just three for Concordia. Evan Jones completed 21-of-38 passes for 428 yards and four touchdowns. Jake Smith caught five passes for 140 yards , Mike Koeneman five passes for 127 yards, and Chris Schulz snagged six for 80 yards. Steve Jones rushed eight times for 73 yards. Brian Hipchen intercepted two passes for the Red Men, and Erik Solis collected a team-leading seven tackles.

"We didn't necessarily need a blow out," said Carthage coach Tim Rucks, "but we did need a complete-game effort from both the offensive and the defense, which was something we hadn't done in the first two games. We got that done, and our guys deserve credit for that. Evan Jones looked sharp, even if that's something we've just come to expect. We gave him good pass protection, and we ran the ball a little bit. We got to play some other people, like running back Reggie Miller, who's really going to be a good one.   It might not be too long before he's a regular player for us. Our defense played well, and we didn't allow Concordia even a first down for almost a half. We're going to take advantage of the off-week to get ready for North Central on Oct. 2. We know they're the team to beat this year, and we have an extra week that they won't have to get ready. We have some momentum going into that game and two weeks to prepare."
 
Carthage is idle on Saturday, Sept. 25 and returns to action on Oct. 2 by opening its CCIW-schedule with a 6 p.m. game versus North Central College at Benedetti-Wehril Stadium in Naperville, Ill.
