Newell's two TDs lead Augustana past MSU Moorhead in NSIC football

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Josh Hanson threw for three touchdowns as Augustana picked up its fifth-straight victory with a 35-3 win over Minnesota State University Moorhead in Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference football on Saturday.

Hanson finished 11-for-18 with 153 total passing yards. Dajon Newell gave the Vikings (5-3, 5-2 NSIC) an early lead with two rushing touchdowns in the first quarter.

“Our start was not good for us, but I think our defense made progress through the course of the game,” Dragons head coach Steve Laqua said.

“Consistency, as a whole, is something we need to improve on.”

E’Boni Lucious-West led the Dragons (2-6, 1-6 NSIC) with 58 yards rushing on 11 attempts. Quarterback Kevin Koch went 13-for-31 and 86 passing yards.
