MONTICELLO — Sophomore Logan Genz broke the Arkansas Tech single-game tackles record with 24 stops (12 solo, 12 assisted), topping the previous record of 21 set by Eldridge Jones in 1988 and tied by Stevie Van Pelt in 1989, while Ketrich Harmon became the first Wonder Boys player to have three consecutive 100-yard games on the ground since R.J. Vanhook in the 2004 season, but the Arkansas Tech Wonder Boys (2-3, 2-2 Great American Conference) were unable to solve the defense of the University of Arkansas-Monticello Boll Weevils (3-2, 3-2 GAC), falling 34-0 on Saturday.
The Boll Weevils used a ground-based attack to keep the Wonder Boys off balance, scoring seven points in the first quarter, ten apiece in the second and third quarters, and adding seven in the fourth.
Matthew Shade turned in a solid effort with seven punts for 294 yards, twice pinning the Boll Weevils inside the 20. Cassius Washington returned five kicks for 111 yards, including a long return of 50 yards, while Wesley McKinney turned in a 13-tackle effort.
Tim Kelly was credited with 2.5 tackles for loss, while Justin Martin added two tackles for loss.
The Wonder Boys will return to action on Saturday, Oct. 12, returning to Thone Stadium at Buerkle Field for a Family Day showdown with Southern Arkansas. Kickoff is set for 6 p.m.
