Wisconsin-Whitewater 20, North Central 10


NAPERVILLE, Ill. -- Lee Brekke threw a touchdown pass and scored the go-ahead points on a 5-yard run early in the fourth quarter as Wisconsin-Whitewater defeated North Central 20-10 in the Division III quarterfinals on Saturday.

The Warhawks (13-0), the defending Division III champions, advanced to the semifinals for the sixth straight year and won their 28th straight game, the longest streak in NCAA football. They will play Wesley College (Del.) next Saturday.

North Central (12-1) led 10-7 late in the third quarter, but Sam Overton intercepted Spencer Stanek's pass and the Warhawks took over at the Cardinals' 19-yard line. Four plays later, Brekke scored from the 5 and Wisconsin-Whitewater led for the first time with 13:46 to play.

Stanek fumbled and threw another interception later in the quarter, with each turnover leading to field goals by Eric Kindler.

Levell Coppage ran for 107 yards for the Warhawks.
