NEWBERRY - The Newberry Wolves jumped out to a 24-0 lead in the first half and never looked back in a dominating 55-21 win over the North Greenville Crusaders in the regular season finale at Setzler Field on Saturday afternoon.
Newberry completes the regular season at 9-2 overall and awaits word on its status for the NCAA Division II playoffs. The playoff field will be announced at 5 p.m. Sunday. North Greenville wraps up its season at 5-6.
The Wolves' offense was in fine form throughout the day, racking up 570 yards and 31 first downs on 84 plays. The yardage was well balanced, with 283 yards on the ground and 287 yards through the air. The game marked the first time the Wolves had over 30 first downs since the double overtime game at Catawba in 2005.
W.T. Murden (West Columbia, S.C.) completed 15-of-19 passes for 171 yards and two touchdowns, while also gaining 47 yards on 10 carries. Raleigh Yeldell (Johnston, S.C.) completed 4-of-5 passes for 53 yards and had four carries for 67 yards and two touchdowns. Zach Blair (Lyman, S.C.) completed 8-of-8 passes for 63 yards.
Ryan Barnwell (Goose Creek, S.C.) had 11 carries for 53 yards and Treginald Wilson (Mayesville, S.C.) and Jordan McDonnell (Bluffton, S.C.) each had touchdown carries.
Corey Washington (North Charleston, S.C.) had four catches for 57 yards and a touchdown while also returning a punt 85 yards for a score. Jason Livingston (Conway, S.C.) had seven receptions for 50 yards and Jalen Cook (Lexington, S.C.) had four catches for 61 yards. Byron Dickerson (Atlanta, Ga.) caught a 20-yard touchdown pass.
Kyle Clark (Beaufort, S.C.) had only two punts, but boomed one in the second quarter for 64 yards. He also connected on field goals of 20 and 31 yards and four PATs. All four kickers - Clark, Ryan Janssen (Bennettsville, S.C.), Seth Graham (Knightsville, S.C.) and Joseph Foster (Newberry, S.C.) - made a PAT.
Dominique Walker (Rock Hill, S.C.) led the Wolves with eight tackles, a tackle for loss and a pass breakup. Taylor McDonnell (Bluffton, S.C.) had five tackles, while David Davis (Columbia, S.C.) had five tackles and an interception, while Brice Green (Irmo, S.C.) also had an interception deep in NGU territory.
NGU receiver Freddie Martino set the Division II mark for career receptions in the game.
Newberry was held to a field goal on its opening drive, as the Wolves fell just short of the endzone at the 1-yardline. After a Crusader punt, Newberry went 80 yards in 10 plays with Wilson's 17-yard end around carry for a touchdown making it a 10-0 game.
Green's interception at the MGU 3-yardline gave the Wolves the ball, but they were forced to punt, one of only two drives on the day which did not end in a score. After an NGU three-and-out, Murden capped off a 45-yard drive with a 12-yard touchdown pass to Washington. The senior receiver extended the lead to 24-0 at the end of NGU's next drive with an 85-yard punt return for a touchdown.
The guests finally got on the scoreboard at the 1:50 mark with a 1-yard touchdown carry by Nelson Hughes, but that left enough time for the Wolves to respond, as Yeldell scampered for a 34-yard touchdown with 1:07 left in the half. Davis' interception set the Wolves up to score again before the half, but the drive resulted in a punt.
Clark made a 31-yard field goal on the Wolves' opening drive of the second half to push the score to 34-7. That was followed by a 13-play Crusader drive that ended in a 2-yard Hughes touchdown carry to make it 34-14.
Murden's 20-yard touchdown pass to Dickerson on the first play of the fourth quarter made it a 41-14 game and the Wolves' defense held NGU to a three-and-out. Yeldell then engineered another touchdown drive, this time punching it in from five yards out.
Hughes connected with Martino for a long touchdown for the Crusaders before Blair led a long drive for the Wolves, going 88 yards in 17 plays with nearly eight minutes coming off the clock before McDonnell scored from a yard out on his Senior Day.
