WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) – Quarterback Mickey Mohner passed for one touchdown and ran for another as Wayne State defeated previously unbeaten Winston-Salem State 21-14 in the Division II semifinals on Saturday.

Mohner hit Josh Renel with a 25-yard touchdown pass on the first series of the game, then sneaked for a 1-yard touchdown in the second quarter as the Warriors jumped out to a 14-0 lead and stayed in control the rest of the way.

The victory moved Wayne State (12-3) into next Saturday’s Division II championship game in Florence, Ala., against the winner of Saturday night’s game between Delta State and Pittsburg (Kans.) State.

Winston-Salem State (13-1) came into the game averaging 42.8 points per game but managed a season-low 14 points. Wayne State’s defense had one goal-line stand and Andrew Matt also returned a fumble to the 1-yard line, where Chet Privett scored to make it 21-7 in the third quarter.
