The Turpin Cardinals scored touchdowns on all three possessions in the second quarter to shake off a slow start on their way to a 38-16 road victory over the Boise City Wildcats. 

Turpin headed into the second quarter trailing 8-0, having moved the ball some in the first quarter, but unable to extend drives on either possession. On their third possession, Turpin started at their 43 and quickly moved into Wildcat territory. An incomplete pass on 3rd and 6 looked to have ended another Cardinal offensive possession, but a pass interference call extended the drive. Four plays later, Bryson Parker found Kaden Moses for a 15-yard touchdown to cap the 10-play drive and knot the game at 8-8 with 11:42 left in the first half. 

The Turpin defense stepped up when it was their turn. Boise City gambled on 4th and 3 from their own 23 and the Cardinal D held them one yard short, taking over at the Wildcat 25. One play later, Aaron Resendiz found a running lane to paydirt to put the Cardinals up after the two-point conversion, 16-8 with 9:34 left in the second quarter.

Boise City was able to extend their next drive into Turpin territory, but a block-in-the-back negated a big gain that would have had the Wildcats, first and ten at the Turpin 20. The drive ended two plays later with an incomplete pass on 4th and 11, giving Turpin back the ball with 3:15 left in the half. 

It took Turpin just four plays and just over a minute of clock time to get back in the endzone. Parker tossed his second TD pass from 42 yards out to Eduardo Aguilar giving the Cardinals a 24-8 lead at the half. 

On the Cardinals second possession of the third quarter, Turpin got a big play when Parker found Resendiz for a 43-yard gain to the Boise City 15. Two plays later Braden Ratzlaff scored on a 6-yard run and the 2-point conversion was good to put the Cards up 32-8 with 3:25 left in the third quarter. 

Turpin put the game away with the next defensive and offensive series. The Cardinals held Boise City to a three-and-out, and Resendiz returned the punt 57 yards to the Wildcat 15. Four plays later, Jaxon Hensley rumbled in and Turpin’s lead was extended to 38-8 with 10:30 to play. 

Turpin finished the game with 12 first downs and 320 yards of offense; 158 on the ground and 162 through the air. Boise City finished with 236 yards and 8 first downs. 

Aaron Resendiz rushed for 116 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries and caught three passes for 59 yards. Kaden Moses caught 7 passes for 47 yards and a touchdown. Bryson Parker was 14 of 21 passing for 162 yards and two TDs. 

On the defensive side, Bailey Boyd led the Cardinals with 12 tackles, a tackle for loss and a sack. Reid Hendrich had 5.5 tackles and a sack, Resendiz had 6.5 tackles and a tackle for loss, and John Epp had five tackles. 

Turpin (2-1) will host Buffalo for homecoming, Friday.
