The Kentucky Wesleyan College football team fell to Findlay in their home opener on Saturday night. The Oilers picked-up three quick scores in the first quarter and never looked back.
It took the Oilers (2-0) just over three minutes and 75 yards to score the first touchdown of the game. They picked-up and returned a fumble to add to their lead within the first seven minutes of the game. By the end of the first quarter, Findlay held a 20-0 lead.
The Panthers (0-2) scored their lone touchdown in the second quarter. Kishawn Walker gave the Panthers prime field position with an interception on the UF 22-yardline. Four players later Chauncey Greer found Jayden Freeman in the endzone for a 25-yard reception. The extra point was blocked, and the Panthers trailed 30-6.
The Oilers added a late touchdown and field goal to end the half and hold a 40-6 lead at the break. Findlay used its running attack to shorten the game in the second half.
Greer finished the game six of 19 passing with one touchdown. Michael Walker made four catches for 28 yards while Devyn Bledsoe made nine tackles, including one for a loss.
The Panthers will travel to Tiffin, Ohio on Saturday for a match-up against the Dragons. Kick-off is scheduled for 12 PM CT.
