WICHITA, Kan. — The Wichita Wild crushed the Kansas Koyotes Saturday night, winning 52-14.
During their last outing before their bye week, the Wild struggled to find an offensive rhythm with the absence of quarterback Rocky Hinds and lost 11-13. Saturday however, Hinds was back under center and the offense looked like its former self jumping out to a 35-0 halftime lead.
The stout defense was no surprise though as they have led the league statistically all season. Safety Dan Kontz made the first impact play for the Wild, intercepting quarterback Carlos Cavanagh on the Koyotes’ first offensive drive.
The second half was more of the same with the Wild controlling the ball and playing sound defense. With the game out of reach, the Koyotes finally found the endzone twice but threw another interception with little time left to end the game.
The win moved the Wild’s record to 7-2 with three games remaining in the regular season. The Koyotes however are still chasing their first win and sit at 0-9.
Next week the Wild travel to Dodge City to play the Law who are currently 7-3. It will be the first ever meeting for the two teams since the Law joined the CPIFL as an expansion team in 2014.
