INDIANAPOLIS – A year removed from a program-changing season of success, UIndy is showing no signs of letting up.
The month of October is proof of that.
On Saturday the Greyhounds completed the successful month with the 52-0 shutout of Kentucky Wesleyan Saturday night at Key Stadium.
The victory completes a 4-0 October for the Greyhounds who remain undefeated and in first place in the GLVC heading into November. With three more victories, UIndy would lock up a spot in the NCAA Division II Playoffs for a 2nd straight season.
As with many of their games this month, UIndy made sure that Kentucky Wesleyan had little chance in the first 30 minutes. Just two minutes into the game the Greyhounds had the lead when Eddie Antonietti recovered a Panthers’ fumble and returned it 21-yards for a touchdown and a 7-0 lead.
A Scott Miller field goal and touchdown run by Matt Ripp brought the UIndy advantage to 17-0 at the end of one quarter and the Greyhounds broke it open in the second. Klay Feichter was a big reason as he scored two rushing touchdowns and returned a punt for a score in the 15 minute period.
Add in a Greg Johnson 39-yard run for a score out of the Wildcat formation and the Greyhounds had a convincing 45-0 lead at the break.
Ripp added another score early in the third to cap the scoring and add to his 90 yards rushing. Feichter led the Greyhounds with 97 yards rushing while quarterback Connor Barthel completed all but one of his 13 passes for 131 yards.
Next week the Greyhounds travel to St. Joseph’s of Indiana for a GLVC contest at 1 PM.
