Saints Football Opens 2013 With Thrilling Home Win Over Luther

Posted: Updated:

Aberdeen, SD

Sixty minutes of football came down to the final two seconds for the Presentation College football squad Saturday, 9/7/13.  And when Luther College's game winning field goal attempt went wide right, the Saints celebrated a 23-22 home opening win.  

PC trailed 14-0 after 1 quarter of play, but thanks to causing 3 Norse fumbles, the Saints were able to outscore Luther 23-8 the rest of the way.  Junior lineman Derek Buthe recovered a  fumble late in the 4th quarter that would lead to a 5 yard touchdown run by junior Devin Mohn that put PC up one.  The Norse would get the ball back, and drive to the Saints 18 yard line.

 However, Blane Maher's 35 yard field goal attempt with two ticks left on the clock sailed wide right, giving head coach Andy Carr and his Saints the victory, 23-22. It's the 2nd straight season the Saints have opened up in the win column.

PC gets back at it next Saturday, 9/14/13, when they host Waldorf College.  Kick off is set for 1:00PM
