ABERDEEN, S.D. -- Dickinson (N.D.) State outscored Presentation College (S.D.) 21-0 in the second half on its way to a 35-6 North Star Athletic Association football win on Saturday.

Scobey product Riley Linder accounted for two of those touchdowns, finding the end zone on a 4-yard run early in the third quarter and a 5-yard run early in the fourth. His second touchdown put the game at its final 35-6 score, and the Blue Hawks' defense put the finishing touches on its most dominant performance of the season.

Dickinson State forced four turnovers in the game, the first coming on Presentation's first drive of the game when Dawson McGlothlin, a junior from Sidney, snagged an interception. Jared Smith, a junior from Glasgow, and Paxton Miller, a senior from Savage, both recorded interceptions in the second half.

Drew Boedecker threw two touchdowns in the second quarter to help DSU build a 14-6 lead going into the halftime break. He connected with Jaret Lee on a 14-yarder and former Billings Senior standout Tyger Frye on a 12-yarder. Both Lee and Frye eclipsed the 100-yard receiving mark, with Lee totaling 111 yards on nine receptions and Frye 105 yards on 10 catches. Conor McCarvel, a sophomore from Helena Capital, added seven catches for 94 yards. Boedecker completed 33 of 43 passes for 412 yards. Linder paced the rushing attack with 46 yards and two touchdowns on 11 carries.

Derek Tabor was responsible for DSU's other touchdown, running the ball in from 3 yards out in the third quarter.

The Presentation offense struggled all game but did score on an 89-yard pass-and-catch in the second quarter when quarterback Hunter Giffrow found Kevin Wright for the long touchdown.

The Blue Hawks (4-0) continue their conference-only schedule Dakota State on Oct. 10. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. at the Henry Biesiot Activity Center. Dickinson State defeated Dakota State 26-14 in the season opener on Sept. 12.
