Wild dominate season opener


LINCOLN, Nebraska — From beginning to end the Wichita Wild looked like defending league champions, winning 62-10.

They were relentless on defense as they only allowed the Lincoln Haymakers to score one field goal in the first half and one touchdown late in the game. The defense itself outscored the opposition with three touchdowns, two from last year’s Defensive MVP, defensive end Matt Moss.

The offensive seemed to click just fine as well especially after running back Tywon Hubbard broke the game open with a 34 yard touchdown run on the Wild’s second possession of the second half.

The Haymakers didn’t seem on the same page and missed quite a few opportunities with dropped passes and wild snaps. Since the creation of the CPIFL the two teams had not met until tonight.

The Wild will now get a two week break before travelling to Tulsa to play the Oklahoma Defenders March 16. The Wild’s home opener is scheduled to be March 22 against the CPIFL expansion team, the Dodge City Law.
