Western’s senior quarterback, Ryan Bergman, threw for 412 yards on 24 of his 41 passes after coming off an injury. It was Bergman’s sixth 400-yard game. Nine of those catches were to redshirt freshman wide receiver Paul Revis, who had 161 yards and a touchdown.

The Wolves had a staggering 412 total passing yards for the game, compared to Central’s 360. The ground game was held to a steadfast for the Wolves as they racked up 24 yards on the ground; a disappointing number after having 133 yards last week against Dixie State.

“I will do whatever I can to give this team the best chance to win,” said Bergman. “Whether that means I throw for 400 yards or hand the ball off 40 times.”

The Wolves found themselves down 17-7 at the beginning of the fourth quarter, but after a quick field goal and an 89 yard pass to senior wide receiver Tyrell Williams, the Wolves were right back in it.

Williams had just five catches but a career-high 171 receiving yards, which puts him third on Western’s all-time list with 2,398 receiving yards total.

The Wildcats quickly marched down the field again to score a touchdown pass with seven minutes to go in the game. The Wolves managed to answer back with a field goal by senior kicker Jesse Correa, but couldn’t manage to score again before the time ran out.

“We played well but have way more potential then what we played on Saturday.” said Revis.

Junior defensive back Breeon Moreno was named the GNAC defensive player of the year and he backed it up with ten tackles, eight of which were solo. Sophomore defensive back Austin Spencer was also a defensive force, contributing 10 tackles in the game and junior defensive back Roger Garrett added an interception to help make the defenses presence known.

The Wolves beat the Wildcats at home earlier this season but have been beaten at Central Washington 11 consecutive times. Western looks to defeat Simon Fraser next week for their homecoming game at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 25.
