Korth carries Blue Devils to 35-19 victory


Senior Reid Korth was a workhorse for Wayne in the second half, scoring four touchdowns and helping the third-ranked Blue Devils to a 35-19 win over No. 10 West Point-Beemer Friday in West Point.

The senior running back scored on runs of 1, 59, 12 and 1 yards to finish the night with 191 yards on 30 carries to help the Blue Devils improve to 2-0 on the season.

Victor Kniesche scored the Devils' first touchdown on a 12-yard run early in the second quarter. West Point-Beemer took a 12-7 lead midway through the second, but the Blue Devils regained the advantage and carried the momentum into a dominating second half that saw them in possession of the ball for 19 of the second-half's 24 minutes.

Wayne will face Columbus Lakeview in their homecoming game on Friday, Sept. 11 at 7 p.m. at Wayne State College's Cunningham Field.
