Northwestern’s BJ Foster led the charge for the Eagles at Westminster.

FULTON, Mo. — The Northwestern (MN) Eagles used two third-quarter touchdowns to pull away from the Westminster (MO) Blue Jays for a 28-6 win Saturday afternoon.

The Eagles clung to a 14-6 lead at the half behind two BJ Foster touchdown runs as a stubborn Westminster squad defended its own turf with vigor. Northwestern quarterback Corban Halbur then led the second-half charge connecting with Gavin Welch and Cody Carlson on touchdown passes of 9 and 25 yards to knock the wind out of the Blue Jays.

Northwestern returns home next weekend to take on Greenville before closing out the season the following Saturday at Eureka.

Westminster will be at home in Fulton again next weekend for a contest against St. Scholastica. The Blue Jays then close out the 2016 season the following weekend on the road at Minnesota-Morris.
