Augustana-Wheaton Preview

Sophomore wide receiver Torre Harrell celebrates after a touchdown catch against Loras. Harrell and the Vikings host Wheaton at Ericson Field this Saturday.

ROCK ISLAND, Ill. - Augustana opens College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin play this Saturday, September 29, when 20th-ranked Wheaton visits Ericson Field for a 1:00 p.m. contest. The Vikings are 1-2 after defeating Loras 34-10 in their 2012 home opener on September 15. Both Augustana and Wheaton were idle this past week.

In the win over Loras, senior quarterback Nick Welch (Oswego HS, Oswego, Ill.) completed 18 of 22 passes for 347 yards and three touchdowns. His performance earned him CCIW Offensive Player of the Week honors. He hit junior Nick Krantz (Moline HS, Moline, Ill.) for a 78-yard touchdown pass on the Viking's second play from scrimmage and completed all seven of his first-half pass attempts for 172 yards to lead Augustana to a 17-0 halftime lead. He added a pair of third-quarter touchdown passes as the Vikings went up 31-0. He finished with six completions of over 20 yards in the game.

Against Loras, Augustana led 7-0 at the end of the first quarter despite running just two plays and possessing the ball for 1:16 in the opening period. Welch found Krantz behind the Duhawk secondary for a 78-yard touchdown pass to cap a two-play, 80-yard drive which was sandwiched between a pair of long Duhawk marches, both of which came up empty when the Vikings got fourth-down stops.

A Brett McWilliams (Hononegah HS, Roscoe, Ill.) 46-yard touchdown run in the second quarter finished off a six-play, 99-yard drive and put the hosts up 14-0. Sophomore Brady Rogers (Cherokee Trail HS, Parker, Colo.) converted a 22-yard field goal with 3.4 seconds left in the half to make it 17-0 at the break.

Welch connected with sophomore Torre Harrell (Bloomington HS, Bloomington, Ill.) from 24 yards out and junior Kyle Snow (Wheaton Warrenville South HS, Wheaton, Ill.) scored on a one-yard shovel pass sweep in the third quarter to put the Vikings up 31-0. After a field goal got the Duhawks on the board, Rogers drilled a 38-yarder to complete Augustana's scoring. Loras scored their lone touchdown with 1:34 remaining after recovering a Viking fumble at the Augustana 25-yard line.

Junior linebacker Erik Westerberg (York HS, Elmhurst, Ill.) added a dozen tackles to his team-leading total and now has 44, including 24 solo, in three games this season. He also has a team-best 5.5 tackles for loss. Sophomore safety Bo Goshorn (Romeoville HS, Romeoville, Ill.) is next with 24 stops. Sophomore defensive end Sean McIntyre (Genoa-Kingston HS, Genoa, Ill.) had two sacks against Loras and leads the Vikings with four this season.

On offense, Welch's big game upped his season totals to 28 completions in 46 attempts (60.9%) for 543 yards. He's thrown for four touchdowns and has been picked off twice and his 180.03 passer rating ranked 12th in the nation after week three. Krantz has been his most frequent target, with nine catches for 220 yards (24.4 per catch) and one touchdown. Snow has five catches for 69 yards and a score.

McWilliams and junior Eric Chandler (Cary-Grove HS, Cary, Ill.) have shared time at running back. McWilliams has carried 19 times for 126 yards (6.6 per carry) and a touchdown and Chandler 17 times for 90 yards (5.3 per carry) and a score.

Rogers has converted three field goals, with a long of 38 yards, and eight extra points without a miss this season.

Wheaton comes into Saturday's contest 2-1 and ranked 20th in the D3football.com week three poll. The Thunder have sandwiched lopsided wins over Benedictine (48-7) and Luther (53-7) around a surprising 22-21 loss at Albion.

The Wheaton offense has averaged just under 400 yards of total offense per game, 163.7 on the ground and 231.7 through the air. Senior quarterback Jordan Roberts has completed 51 of 74 passes (68.9%) for 538 yards and nine touchdowns with just a single interception. He was the 24th-ranked passer in Division III through week three. Senior wide receiver Morgan Cook has been his favorite target, with 18 catches for 242 yards and three touchdowns.  Sophomore wide receiver Mark Hiben, who was a first team All-CCIW pick in 2011, caught seven passes for 72 yards and two touchdowns in the season opener, but has been out with an injury since.

The Thunder running game is led by senior Peter Jarrett, who's rushed 51 times for 261 yards (5.1 per carry) and four touchdowns. Junior Justin Swider, son of Wheaton head coach Mike Swider, has carried 24 times for 141 yards (5.9 per carry) and one score. Roberts is also a threat with his legs, having rushed for 84 yards, including a long of 37.

The Thunder defense has allowed just 228.3 total yards per game which ranked 17th in the nation after three weeks. It's led by 6' 3", 308-pound junior lineman Brandon Dykstra, a first team All-CCIW selection a year ago. Senior inside linebacker Pat Dansdill is Wheaton's leading tackler with 23 total stops. Junior strong safety Tony Vargyas leads with 12 solo tackles.

LAST YEAR...  

10/29/11-WHEATON 36, AUGUSTANA 7 

Augustana falls at 13th-ranked Wheaton  

WHEATON, Ill.-Wheaton quarterback Garrett Meador threw for 368 yards and five touchdowns Saturday as 13th-ranked Wheaton defeated Augustana 36-7 at McCulley Field. The Vikings fall to 2-6 on the year and 2-3 in CCIW play, while the Thunder improves to 7-1 overall and 4-1 in the league.

 Wheaton took the opening kickoff and went 55 yards in eight plays. Meador connected with Teddy Watkins for a five-yard touchdown pass to cap the drive and put the hosts up 7-0.

 After getting a 41-yard punt return from Micah Markley, it took The Thunder just five plays to go 38 yards for another touchdown. Meador found Brannen Dorman for a five-yard touchdown pass. Scott Roche's point after made it 14-0 with 7:19 left in the first quarter. With 35 seconds left in the period Roche converted 28-yard field goal attempt to make it 17-0.

 Augustana put together a 14-play, 62-yard march early in the second quarter, but came away empty when Brady Rogers' (Cherokee Trail HS, Aurora, Colo.) 47-yard field goal came up short.

 Meador and the Thunder went right back to work, going 75 yards in just five plays. The Wheaton quarterback connected with freshman Mark Hiben for his third touchdown pass of the afternoon, this one a 45-yarder, to make the score 23-0. The Vikings blocked Roche's PAT attempt. Then, just before halftime, it was Meador and Hiben hooking up again on a 24-yard scoring strike. Roche's point after attempt was again no good and Wheaton took a 29-0 lead to the locker room. Meador's final touchdown pass of the day came with 2:38 left in the third quarter when he connected with Justin Zeller for a nine-yard score. That play capped an 11-play, 72-yard march and put the Thunder up 36-0. Meador play just one more series before getting the rest of the day off.

 Augustana got on the board with 4:28 left when senior quarterback David Lee (Springfield HS, Springfield, Ill.) hit Keith Abbey (Rich East HS, Park Forest, Ill.)  for a one-yard touchdown. The Vikings needed to only go nine yards for the score after Joe Weber's (Marmion Academy, South Elgin, Ill.)  second fumble recovery of the day. Rogers' PAT made it 36-7, Thunder.

 Wheaton held Augustana to just 181 total yards on the day. Junior running back Brett McWilliams (Hononegah HS, Roscoe, Ill.) led the rushing attack with 51 yards on 11 carries. Lee finished 13 of 24 for 116 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions. Weber and sophomore safety Mike O'Donoghue (Mundelein HS, Mundelein, Ill.) led the Viking defense, which held Wheaton to just 92 rushing yards on 32 carries, with nine tackles each. In addition to the two fumble recoveries, Weber also had a forced fumble and a pair of sacks on the day.
