HURRICANE IRMA FALLOUT REACHES 

ALL THE WAY TO PACIFIC LUTHERAN

The Pacific Lutheran University football team’s scheduled home opener on Saturday against Warner University (Florida) has been canceled due to the fallout from Hurricane Irma.

Warner, located in Lake Wales, Florida, is currently dealing with the aftermath of the devastating storm and has canceled classes for the remainder of the week. Hurricane Irma, in addition to causing widespread destruction to the Sunshine State, has already caused the cancelation of two of the Royals’ football games this season.

The Lutes (0-1) will be back on the gridiron on Sept. 30, hosting crosstown rival University of Puget Sound at 1 p.m. at Sparks Stadium to open up Northwest Conference play.

STRONG OUTING NOT ENOUGH 

IN PLU FOOTBALL OPENER

Cole Chandler tossed a touchdown pass and ran for two more but it was not enough as the Pacific Lutheran University football team fell just short on Saturday, Nov. 9, with host California Lutheran University holding on for the 27-21 victory under the lights at Rolland Stadium.

The Lutes (0-1) were on the move in the waning moments of the fourth quarter before the drive sputtered at the CLU six yard line. Chandler scampered four yards for a touchdown with 4:59 left in the game, pulling the Lutes within six. The Lute defense came up big the next possession, forcing the Kingsmen (1-0) to a three-and-out. PLU was back in business on its own 42 with 3:55 remaining and was able to rumble to the six on a reception by Ethan McElderry. The drive stalled from there as a fourth down attempt from the 13-yard line was intercepted, sealing the win for host Cal Lutheran.

The Kingsmen scored on their opening drive but the Lutes answered late in the first quarter with DJ Winter scoring on a seven-yard reception to tie the game with 68 seconds left in the quarter. Cal Lu surged back in front with a pair of touchdowns in the second, enjoying a 21-7 halftime edge. Chandler ran in from 13 yards out midway through the third before scoring late in the fourth. Those runs were sandwiched around CLU field goals that ultimately proved the difference-maker.

“It was a game of two halves for us,” said Head Coach Scott Westering. “We gave up 300 yards and 21 points in the first half and only two field goals in the second.”

Chandler finished with 175 yards through the air while also adding 41 on the ground, having a hand in all three scores on the night. DJ Winter proved the most popular target, nabbing five catches for 57 yards while McElderry led the ground attack, running for 61 yards on 11 carries while also racking up 238 all-purpose yards, accumulating 50 on three receptions and 127 more on six kick returns.

“Offensively, Cole and Ethan played well,” said Westering. “We had to overcome two serious injuries early in the game but I’m very proud of how we battled back and gave ourselves a chance at the end against a really good and athletic CLU team.”

Defensively, Doug James and Parker Trewet both finished with seven tackles while the team combined for six tackles for loss, three sacks, and an interception. CLU outgained the Lutes 428-303 with 277 of those yards coming through the air with Aaron Lacombe and Wendell O’Brien both finishing with over 100 yards receiving.

Pacific Lutheran is back in action next Saturday, facing Warner University at 1 p.m. in the home opener at Sparks Stadium.

HUGE PUGET SOUND THIRD 

QUARTER BURIES OCCIDENTAL

A historic third quarter launched the Puget Sound football team to a 61-6 victory over Occidental in the Loggers’ first home game of the 2017 season in Baker Stadium, Saturday, Nov. 9.

Puget Sound (1-1) totaled 41 points in the first 15 minutes after halftime, including 21 points in the final two minutes of the third quarter. Tanner Diebold completed a pass Jewell Day along the Oxy sideline, as Day shook a defender and sprinted into the end zone for a 51-yard scoring play. The touchdown gave the Loggers a 40-0 lead with 1:39 on the clock in the third quarter.

The Tigers’ (0-1) next possession ended after two plays, thanks to William Geary’s interception. The very next play, Diebold connected with Aiden Santino for a 19-yard touchdown.

Occidental’s next possession lasted just one play, as Marcus Wiley scooped up a fumble and took it to the house to give Puget Sound a 54-0 lead with 15 seconds left before the fourth quarter.

Diebold finished the game with 313 passing yards and four touchdowns. Nik Bernhardt got in on the action and threw for 60 yards, including a five-yard touchdown pass to Jeffrey Hepner.

Nathaniel Abernethy finished with 85 receiving yards and a touchdown. He almost had a second touchdown after making an amazing diving catch at the Tigers’ one-yard line in the middle of the third quarter. Vance Wood rushed for a touchdown from there. Paul Thomas added a pair of rushing touchdowns to go along with his 50 yards on the ground. Dustin Harrison led all players with nine receptions (74 yards).

Todd Blakely was a menace on the defensive line, recording two sacks, 3.5 tackles for a loss, and a fumble recovery. Keanu Songcuan finished with a sack and a forced fumble.

The Loggers eclipsed 60 points in a game for the first time since the 2010 season, and they came up nine points shy of tying the program record (70, vs. Lewis & Clark in 2006).

The Loggers have consecutive bye weeks before their crosstown rivalry contest at Pacific Lutheran on Sept. 30, at 1 p.m.
