SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -
John Bentley carried the load and ran right into the record books Saturday night in the Bandits 61-47 win over the Omaha Beef.
Bentley set a new CPIFL record with 6 rushing touchdowns, pushing his season total to 17.
Tied at 33 heading into the fourth quarter, Bentley hit paydirt four times in the final 15 minutes as Sioux City improved to 7-2.
Bentley ranks second in the league with his 17-rushing scores and first in yards with 620.

Bloomington handed the Bandits their second loss of the season, 52-43, back in April.
Sioux City then heads to Kansas (May 24) and Wichita (May 31) to end the season.
Of their remaining three opponents, only the Wild (6-2) have a winning record.
