PLATTEVILLE, WI. — The University of Wisconsin-Platteville football team fell 49-21 to No. 5 and undefeated University of Wisconsin-Whitewater Saturday in the 26th edition of the George Chryst Memorial Bowl.
    Overall, the Pioneers scored three touchdowns against the undefeated team that had yet to have any opponent score more than one touchdown. 
    Mater Dei High School graduate Colin Schuetz went 21 of 41 attempts for 246 yards with two touchdowns.
    Sean Studer rushed for 38 yards off 13 carries with one touchdown for UW-P all while the Warhawks held the advantage with 134 yards rushing compared to the Pioneers’ 25 yards.
    Freshman David Urke made his debut Saturday leading the Pioneers with 122 yards receiving off six passes for two touchdowns. Seniors Connor Fedderly (43 yards) and Tim Jansen (33 yards) each pulled down five receptions.
    Tyler Reinhardt led the defense with eight solos and two assists with two tackles for losses for six yards. Clayton Becker finished the day with four tackles, two tackles for losses for 14 yards, and a forced fumble.
    The Pioneers had to act fast as the Warhawks sped to a quick start scoring off their first two drives to give them the 14-0 lead with 7:34 remaining in the first quarter. 
    UW-Platteville capitalized on its first opportunity when Connor Foley’s punt from the Warhawk 39 on fourth-and-8 was fumbled by UW-Whitewater’s Josh Ringleberg at their own 6-yard line and recovered by Bo Babich. 
    Sean Studer cut the deficit in half the next play when he rushed into the end zone with a Michael Pratl extra kick for a 7-14 game with five minutes left in the first.
    UW-Whitewater extended their lead once again on their next drive with five plays for 62 yards good for a 26 yard pass from Cole Wilber to Ryan Wisniewski. 
    The second quarter saw two more unanswered Warhawk touchdowns until Clayton Becker forced a fumble with Cole Wilber recovering the possession at the UW-Whitewater 14-yard line.  Looking to shave off the Warhawks’ 35-7 lead, the Pioneers were unable to score off the turnover in Warhawk territory.
    The Pioneers were unsuccessful at finding the end zone against the No. 8 ranked defense until the fourth quarter when Schuetz sent one 24 yards to David Urke for a Pioneer touchdown to lessen the deficit to 42-14 with 13 minutes left in the game. UW-Whitewater replied once again with an 11 play, 45 yard drive resulting in another touchdown, extending their lead to 49-14. 
    The Pioneers had the last word with a six play, 87-yard drive in the final minutes.  Schuetz had a big completion on third-and-8 when he found David Urke downfield for a 44-yard pass. 
    Schuetz found Connor Fedderly in the end zone, but a pass interference call brought the ball back to the 17-yard line for Schuetz to find Urke once again for the Pioneers’ third touchdown of the day with just 3:28 remaining before it would become final.
