Feeney, who is headed to the University of North Dakota, threw all six of his TD passes in the first half as the Spuds opened up a commanding 49-0 lead. He connected twice in the first quarter with Blake Walthall, who finished the game with four touchdown catches. The first was a 35-yard score followed by a 60-yarder.

Feeney connected with George Nyanforth in the second quarter on a 80-yard gain for a score and a 21-0 lead. Nyanforth finished with three catches for 111 yards on the night. Feeney and Walthall then hooked up with Walthall again on a 13-yard strike for a 28-0 lead. Feeney then hit Jacqui Fitzpatrick on a 77-yard touchdown for a 35-0 lead.

The Moorhead defense took part in the scoring on the following drive when Giulio Angotti picked off a Buffalo pass and returned it 22 yards for the pick six. Leading 42-0, Feeney and Walthill capped off the first half with Walthall’s fourth from 11 yards out for a 49-0 halftime lead.

Buffalo running back Luke Gunderson finally got across the goal line in the fourth quarter. Gunderson had a strong night carrying the ball with 140 yards on 24 carries.

Moorhead closed out the scoring when backup QB Gave Quade connected with Jacob Guest for the final tally.

Feeney now has 10 TD passes and has thrown for 634 yards in two games.
