GAMEDAY RECAP

MOORHEAD, Minn. (09/19/09)-- One of Webster's Dictionary definitions of the word "finish" is: to come to the end of a course, task, or undertaking. Unfortunately for No.23-ranked Concordia, they were unable to come to the end of three different undertakings on Saturday against No.6-ranked St. John's and fell 31-19. The Cobbers had three drives end inside the Johnnies' 16-yard line and were unable to hold down SJU QB Joe Boyle and lost the conference opener for both teams.

The loss is the first of the year for Concordia and drops CC's record to 2-1. St. John's wins for the third time this season and moves to 3-0. The Cobbers are now 0-9-1 against the Johnnies at home since 1986 - the last time CC beat SJU at home.

The game was practically even except for the Johnnies' ability to finish off their drives in the end zone. The Cobbers held a narrow 371-369 edge in total offensive yards. The Johnnies had a 30:34-29:26 margin in possession time. Concordia had one more first down in the game at 23-22. CC was 6-for-15 on third down while SJU was 5-for-12. The difference - St. John's was 3-for-3 inside the red zone and Concordia was only 1-for-4.

Both quarterbacks had big games for the two teams. Concordia quarterback Andrew Larson was 22-for-32 for 252 passing yards. He also carried the ball 24 times for 25 yards and rushed for one of the three CC TD's. His 22 completions are the fifth most in a single game for a Cobber QB. St. John's quarterback Joe Boyle was 13-for-23 for 192 passing yards and tossed three touchdown passes. He also ran for 72 yards.

Cobber senior running back Craig Lachowitzer had a game-high five catches for 75 yards and also caught the only CC TD pass. Nine different Cobber players caught passes in the game for CC which is the most in a single game in recent history. Justin Brantner was the team's leading rusher with 49 yards on 12 carries

Jakob Reding had a game-high 80 rushing yards for SJU. Wide receiver Ben Vanderheyden had three catches for 52 yards and one TD. Josh Overman and Jimmy Loonan also caught touchdown passes for the Johnnies.

Defensively, the biggest play of the game was turned in by Concordia's Jake Uphus. He picked off a Boyle pass with just under five minutes to play in the fourth quarter and rambled 65 yards to score his first collegiate touchdown.

Junior defensive back Zach Debeltz had a team-high nine tackles. He also had one tackle for a loss and one pass break up. Xavier Carroll had a game-high three pass breakups.

John Stanton led the Johnnies with nine tackles. SJU had 10 tackles for a loss against the Cobbers and posted 5.0 sacks on the day. Defensive lineman Kyle Schroeder was continually in the CC backfield and came away with a game-high 2.5 sacks and 4.0 tackles for a loss. He also recovered both of the Cobber fumbles deep in SJU territory.

Concordia will hit the road for another tough conference test when they play at Bethel on Saturday, Sept. 26 at 1 p.m.
