Upper Iowa routs Minnesota-Crookston for first win

Posted:

FAYETTE (KWWL) -- Kirby Hovden threw for 6 touchdown passes as Upper Iowa picked up their first win this season in dominant fashion, taking down Minnesota-Crookston 56-19.

The game was never in doubt as the Peacock's opened the scoring on a 2 yard run by Hovden's former North Fayette teammate Mike Moser.  Hovden then completed scoring strikes to John Baldwin, Jessie Hubbard, and Moser to storm out to a 28-0 first half lead.

The win was the first for the Peacocks in the 2010 season.  Upper Iowa (1-5) travels to Minnesota State next Saturday.
