PLU FOOTBALL BACK TO .500 WITH WIN OVER BEARCATS

Brady Winter hauled in two touchdowns and racked up 136 yards as the Pacific Lutheran University football team remained perfect at home with a 33-20 victory over Northwest Conference rival Willamette University on Saturday, Oct. 20, at Sparks Stadium.

It was a sluggish opening half for both teams but the Lutes (3-3, 2-2 NWC) came alive in the final moments of the second quarter to take a 10-0 advantage into the halftime intermission. Nolan Hoover hit Winter on a 26-yard touchdown pass with 2:41 remaining, capping off a 14-play, 72-yard drive for PLU. A quick three and out gave the ball to the Lutes with Alex Brost nailing a 42-yard field goal as time expired for the 10-0 edge.

Willamette (1-5, 0-4 NWC) used an 80-yard touchdown strike early in the third quarter to cut the PLU lead to just four but the Lutes’ countered with a drive of their own with Ethan McElderry catching a 12-yard touchdown pass from Walker LaVoy to put the home side back up 17-6.

PLU’s lead mushroomed again midway through the third quarter with LaVoy hitting Winter on a 61-yard touchdown pass. McElderry hit paydirt again late in the fourth quarter, bowling in from a yard out with 6:03 left to boost the Lute lead to 30-12. Willamette scored late to close within 10 but failed to recover the onside kick. Anthony Louthan returned the kick to the Willamette nine-yard line before Alex Brost hit his second field goal of the game with 34 ticks left as the Lutes emerged with the 33-20 win.

The Lutes racked up 276 yards through the air with LaVoy and Hoover splitting time under center. Winter was the most popular target with six catches for 136 yards and two scores while Wesley Nixon had five catches for 73 yards.

“Really proud to see senior Brady Winter step up and add a spark to our offense today,” said PLU head coach Brant McAdams. “He and the guys around him worked hard this week to keep improving as a unit and they did that today.”

The Lute defensive unit limited the Bearcats to just 35 rushing yards. Matt Anthony led the defense with 10 tackles, two TFLs, and an interception while Hunter Briggs had eight take downs and one sack.

“Defensively we did a better job in the box stopping the run and made some plays when they were forced to throw,” said McAdams. “Great to see another senior step up when Matt Anthony came away with his interception. This group of seniors realizes their days together in a uniform are ticking down and they’re maximizing every day together.”

The Lutes return to the gridiron on Saturday, Oct. 27, trekking to McMinnville, Oregon to face 25th-ranked Linfield College (4-2).

 

DESPITE SOCCER DRAW, PLU MEN CONTROL OWN DESTINY

The Pacific Lutheran University men’s soccer team’s six game win streak morphed into a seven game unbeaten run on Sunday, Oct. 21, playing the final 30 minutes with 10 men to secure a 2-2 double overtime draw against Whitman College at East Field in Parkland.

“Today was a very difficult game to play against a tough team after a hard fought game yesterday,” said PLU head coach John Yorke. “Whitman is good and played with a lot of energy and effort. I was proud of our guys for our fight and our ability to overcome some obstacles in the game.”

The Lutes’ (12-4-1, 8-2-1 Northwest Conference) Rainier Schlekewey opened the scoring with a goal in the 26th minute off a feed from Joe Sammartino but the visiting Blues (7-6-2, 6-3-2 NWC) leveled the score just before halftime with Oscar Harding netting a goal in the 43rd minute.

Archie Caldwell tipped the scales back in PLU’s favor in the 61st minute, giving the Lutes the lead with a header goal off a pass from Spencer Hokama. Whitman would once again counter with Peter Stephens converting a penalty kick in the 87th minute to send the game into overtime.

Neither team was able to muster a goal in the two 10-minute overtime sessions as the squad’s settled for the draw. Whitman finished with a 13-9 edge in shots, including a 7-4 advantage in shots on frame. RJ Noll made five saves for the Lutes in goal while Whitman keeper Owen Davis-Bower made two stops.

“We’re in the position that every team wants to be in right now at the end of the season,” said Yorke. “We control our own destiny so we’re excited for the next couple of weeks.”

The Lutes are back on the pitch on Saturday, Oct. 27, heading to Oregon to face Linfield College.

 

PLU WOMEN COMPLETE VOLLEYBALL SWEEP OVER RIVAL UPS

The 17h-ranked Pacific Lutheran University volleyball team made quick work of host University of Puget Sound on Wednesday, Oct. 17, steamrolling their rivals by a score of 3-0 (25-16, 25-9, 25-18) inside Memorial Fieldhouse.

“Wow! We came to play tonight,” said PLU head coach Kevin Aoki. “It was a good example of just playing, and it came at the right time. It was just an all around great team effort.”

The Lutes (16-3, 9-2 Northwest Conference) wasted little time asserting their dominance, scoring the opening six points of the match and leading wire-to-wire in a 25-16 opening set win. The Loggers (11-8, 8-3 NWC) netted the first point of the second set but it was all PLU after that with the Lutes scoring the next four points and owning the lead the rest of the way in a 25-9 set win.

PLU never trailed in the third set, scoring five straight to seize a 10-5 lead en route to the 25-18 set win to secure the match.

Mackenzie Harris headlines the Lutes’ offensive efforts, finishing with 14 kills on just 17 attacks while Chloe Epker netted 10 kills. Isabella Zubrod collected 21 assists and seven kills while Caylie Shiramizu had 10 digs.

Wednesday’s victory gave the Lutes a clean sweep of the “Battle of the South Sound” against UPS. The Lutes bested the Loggers 3-0 back on Sept. 19 while also picking up a 3-0 decision at the expense of the Loggers in a non-conference tilt on Sept. 1.

“To play the Loggers three times and not allow them to take a set in a rivalry match is hard to do,” said Aoki. “We will build upon this victory for the rest of the season and look forward to hosting Willamette on Saturday.”

The Lutes return to the court on Saturday, Oct. 27, as they host Willamette University at 5 p.m. in the first of three consecutive matches inside Olson Gymnasium.

 

LOGGERS CAN’T KEEP UP WITH UNDEFEATED WHITWORTH

Jewell Day added to his league-leading total for receiving touchdowns, but the Puget Sound football team lost to No. 18 Whitworth, 47-13, in Baker Stadium on Saturday, Oct. 20.
Late in the third quarter, Day hauled in his 10th receiving touchdown of the season. Senior quarterback Nik Bernhardt connected with the junior wide receiver for the 14-yard touchdown, but Whitworth (6-0, 4-0 NWC) held a comfortable 40-13 lead.
Day had a big 43-yard reception midway through the first quarter, and the drive was capped off by a Silas Washington rushing touchdown that cut Whitworth’s lead to 14-6. However, Puget Sound (4-3, 2-2 NWC) didn’t score again until Day’s touchdown.
Puget Sound opened the game in promising fashion. Whitworth’s opening drive stalled and the Pirates were forced to punt. The punt was subsequently blocked, and the Loggers’s first possession of the game started on Whitworth’s 29-yard line. Despite the favorable field position, Puget Sound turned the ball over with a fumble.
Day and Ethan Goldizen led all players in receiving yards with 57, each. AJ Johnson had a game-high six receptions for 47 yards. Duncan Varela ran the ball well and totaled 44 yards on eight carries, good for 5.5 yards per carry. The Puget Sound defense notched six tackles for a loss, and Brody Pearman led the team with eight tackles.
The Loggers look to bounce back at Willamette Saturday, Oct. 27. Kickoff is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. UPS returns home on Saturday, Nov. 3, when they host 25th-ranked Linfield at 1 p.m.
