The Montana Tech Orediggers trounced the Montana State University Northern football squad 40-0 in an impressive showing Saturday, October 17 at Bob Green Field. The win rocketed the Diggers to No. 12 in the NAIA national rankings with just four games left in the regular season.
Backed by a strong defense, the Diggers limited the Lights to just 189 yards offensively. Three interceptions catapulted the Diggers to a strong lead. Gunnar Kayser lead the defense with nine tackles, while Tyler Gavlak and David Meis each contributed seven.
Quarterback Quinn McQueary and running back Clay Cavender each contributed touchdowns on the offensive end, sealing the deal for Montana Tech.
The Diggers return to the field against conference rival Carroll College on Saturday at 1 pm in Helena.
