Huskies’ football makes a statement

With Bemidji State (2-2) winning earlier in the day St. Cloud State’s (3-1) lead in the NSIC North was cut to just a one game lead. A surprising late scratch of sophomore quarterback Dwayne Lawhorn who sat out with a previously unknown shoulder injury saw redshirt freshman Justin Czech get his first career start at Husky Stadium against Augustana University (2-2). The first drive of the game saw the Vikings convert two long third down attempts which helped them get into Husky territory, but the Vikings’ drive stalled and the Huskies came up with a huge fourth down stop. Czech would lean on the strength of his run game, but it was a 19-yard toss to leading Huskies junior receiver John Pass that helped get the ten play, 40-yard drive that would be capped off with a 46-yard field goal to give St. Cloud the 3-0 lead.
