Tigers Blow Past Wildcats Despite Discipline Problems

The Tigers came out ready for their first home conference match of the year on Saturday against the Kansas State Wildcats. Both teams struggled to score early in the game due to a large amount of penalties from each side. Man of the match Luke Tripp kept Mizzou in the match making tackle after tackle especially early in the match. Near the fifteenth minute, the Tigers swung the ball all the way out to the wing where Kevin Pekkarinen was waiting to touch the ball down in the corner for the first try. About ten minutes later, Wildcat 8-man received a yellow card for an illegal tackle. Just ten minutes before the sir blew whistle signaling half time, Tiger scrumhalf Tony Born also obtained a yellow card for killing a scoring chance for Kansas State. After a hard-fought first half, Mizzou was a step ahead of Kansas State, leading 19-12. As the second half began, the Tigers came out with a lot more fire than the tired Wildcats, and didn’t let up until the final play. Soon after play began once again, Kansas State’s 8-man was given a red card for another illegal tackle. From then on through the rest of the match, the Wildcats were only playing with 14 players, and the Tigers made sure to capitalize by scoring at will for the remainder of the match. Near the 70th minute mark, Tiger prop Connor Fairfax obtained a yellow card for repeated ruck offenses. When the final whistle blew, Mizzou ended up beating Kansas State comfortably with 50-19 score.
