High scoring game ends in win

The Griffons came back from Tahlequah, Okla., with a 45-31 victory over the Northeastern State RiverHawks, improving their record to 6-0 -- the best start of a season since 1981. It was a tough day for the Griffons defensively, with 31 points being the most the team has allowed so far this season, and it wasn’t against a worthy team; the RiverHawks have yet to win a game. Just a week before they played the Griffons, the RiverHawks were getting plastered up in Maryville, losing to the Bearcats 66-6; a team whom the Griffons will meet up with in the last game of the regular season. Michael Hill continued to play like a machine, pounding out another 195 yards to add onto the outstanding numbers he has already put up this season. He is averaging 179 rushing yards a game and is currently sitting at 1,075 yards on the season (the only Division II player over the 1,000 yard mark). Coach Jerry Partridge knows he has a great running back, but he also believes that Hill's so called "weakness" isn't as weak as people think. "He broke a 70-yard run and outran a safety," Partridge said. "That's the one thing people are kind of getting a little worried about, especially at the next level, is his speed. Either their safety is a 4.8 [40-yard dash] guy, or Michael is pretty fast. Because he beat him." Reggie Jordan is still virtually unstoppable from getting in the end zone, and found his way in twice against the RiverHawks. He may only have 12 catches on the season, but half of them have been for touchdowns. Jordan and Hill are currently tied at six for the team high of non-throwing touchdowns. The opponents the Griffons have faced so far have a combined record of 8-28. After the Griffons play the 4-2 Missouri Southern Lions, the remaining four teams will have a combined record of 22-2.
