Wildcats rush past Yale

YALE, Okla. —

The Yale Bulldogs were hoping to contain Morrison’s running attack and convert in the red zone. Friday at McGee Field, neither happened. Yale didn’t convert on its only red zone attempt and Morrison running backs Jordan Quinata and Scotty Van Dorn combined for four rushing touchdowns in a 36-0 Wildcats’ victory.

“(Van Dorn and Quinata) are pretty good running backs,” Yale coach Craig Ellis said. “They are good, hard runners and we didn’t keep them corralled up.”

Van Dorn ran for 167 yards on 19 carries and scored three touchdowns and converted a two-point conversion. Quinata rushed for 96 yards with most of it coming on his 67-yard touchdown run. Morrison coach Cory Bales said Yale did a good job of containing them in the first half but changed things in the second.

“First half, I didn’t feel like we did a good job of running off the ball,” Bales said. “Yale did a good job and won the line of scrimmage. In the second half, We did a better job. You don’t have to give Scotty Van Dorn a big hole to run through, you just got to give him a little crease.”

Leading 14-0, the Wildcats (5-1, 3-0) took control immediately in the second half. On Yale’s first play from scrimmage, Van Dorn stripped Yale’s back Eric Hambrick and returned the fumble 20 yards for a touchdown. Van Dorn converted the two-point conversion to put Morrison up 22-0. The Bulldogs had to punt on their next two possessions and Morrison took advantage of the second. With the ball at the Yale 24, Van Dorn went the distance to increase the Wildcats’ lead. At the end of the quarter, Van Dorn scored on a 7-yard run.

“(The strip) was a big play and he takes it in,” Bales said. “Then we got the running game going.”
