Cobbers vs. Royals Preview
The Coaches
Concordia head coach Terry Horan (Concordia ’89) is in his fourth year as head football coach at Concordia College. Last season he helped the Cobbers to a 7-3 overall mark and a 6-2 MIAC record. In 2002 he was named the MIAC Coach of the Year as he guided the Cobbers to a second place finish. In his first three seasons at the helm, he has compiled a 17-8 conference record and a 19-11 overall mark.

Bethel head coach Steve Johnson enters his 16th season at the controls of the Bethel football program. Under Coach Johnson's leadership, the Royals have had winning records in the MIAC in 13 of his 15 years. Johnson has recorded the most wins of any Bethel football coach and has been selected MIAC Coach of the Year three times, after the 1989, 1996, and 2000 seasons. He was also selected as the West Region Coach of the Year following the 1996 season. 



About Last Year: 
Concordia scored the first points of the game and the last, but it was all Bethel in between as the Royals were able to down Concordia 36-19 in in a critical early-season matchup for both teams. 

The Cobbers drove the ball into Bethel territory eight times, but only converted on three of the opportunities, as the Royals came away with the convincing 17-point margin of victory. With the win, Bethel improves to 2-0 in the MIAC and 3-0 overall. The Cobbers are handed their first defeat of the season, falling to 1-1 in league play and 2-1 overall. 

The Royals avenged last year's game, a 35-14 Cobber win, by reversing roles. Last year, the Cobbers took advantage of Royal mistakes, including eight turnovers, and ran off to the 19-point victory. The tables were turned this year, as the Royals committed no turnovers but forced the Cobbers into three, and ran off 36 consecutive points to put the game away in the second half.

Concordia scored the first seven points of the game - on a 50-yard pass from Ryan Hebrink to Andrew Passanante - and the last 12 points of the game - on an Ed Oehlers run and a Hebrink pass to Shawn Reile. However, Bethel put 36 points worth of meat in the scoring sandwich to earn the 36-19 victory. 

Quarterback Scott Kirchoff led the way for Bethel, throwing for three touchdowns and running for a fourth. Perhaps the most important play of the game, though, was only worth three points. Down 7-6 and facing fourth down, the Royals sent out kicker Paul Tschetter to attempt a 52-yard field goal into a moderate cross wind. Considering Tschetter had just put an extra point attempt wide to the left, not many in the stadium expected the kick to succeed. But the kick was perfect, barely dropping over the center of the crossbar, giving the Royals a 9-7 lead and squarely turning the momentum in their favor. The Cobbers never seemed to recover and didn't score again until late in the fourth quarter when the game was out of reach.

For Concordia, Hebrink finished the game 16-for-30 for 229 yards in passing and also contributed 51 yards on the ground. Bobby Clark carried the ball 18 times for 71 yards.

Fresh off his medical red-shirt season of 2002, Kirchoff had another stellar afternoon. He completed 16 of the 23 passes he threw and totaled 239 yards through the air. In the past two games against Concordia (2003, 2001) he has thrown for seven touchdowns, rushed for one and thrown for over 450 passing yards. 

Jesse Dick led the Royals rushing attack. He ran for 88 yards on 15 carries and scored a touchdown. 

Senior safety Sam Lacy was a thorn in Concordia's offensive side all day long as he combined to make 20 tackles. Matt Wassink made 5 unassisted tackles and assisted on 11 others in the winning effort.

Cobber cornerback Josh Vickerman had four solo tackles and assisted on five others, while Doug Runke had two tackles and assisted on seven to lead the Concordia defense. 


Series Background
Concordia leads the overall series between the two teams 19-7-0

Bethel holds a 6-4 edge in the series in the last ten games. The teams traded wins from 1993 until 2000 when the Royals won back-to-back games for the first time in the series in 2000 and 2001. The Cobbers won the first 12 games in the series. The first win for Bethel was in 1990 in St. Paul…the record for most points scored by a single team in a single game in the series is 63. Concordia beat Bethel 63-6 in 1987…there have only been three shutouts in the series – the Cobbers own all three. The last shutout in the series was back in 1986. 


The Marquee Match-Up - Cobber Defensive Front Seven vs. Bethel RB Phil Porta 
Today's match-up pits the Cobber defensive front seven vs. Bethel sophomore running sensation Phil Porta. This could also be billed as a battle of MIAC Titans!

Porta is leading the MIAC in every rushing category alive and is ranked sixth in NCAA Division III in rushing yardage per game and ninth in all-purpose yards. Last week he hung 178 yards on St. Thomas, who had one of the top defenses in the league entering the game. Add to the fact that Porta has scored nine of their 20 overall TD's and five of their 12 TD's in the MIAC and you have a legitimate offensive one-man weapon. 

In Bethel's only lopsided loss of the season, a 37-0 shutout against St. John's, Porta was held for under 100 yards in rushing for the only time all season. 

The Cobber defensive front seven has been the toughest in the league against the run all year long. They have consistently shut down the top runners in the league and completely neutralized opposing offenses. Against St. Thomas' premiere back, Walter Dosh, the Cobbers held him to a mere 33 yards. Facing Wade Thompson of Carleton, Concordia stifled the Knight king for only 11 yards, and last week against Corey Weber of St. John's. The Cobbers held him to 21 yards (he did leave the game with a separated shoulder in the first quarter). St. John's was leading the MIAC in rushing yards per game when they started last Saturday. When they left they been held to only 60 yards of rushing and had dropped all the way to fourth in the MIAC in rushing yards per game.

This has all the makings of a knock-down, drag-out street fight with the last man standing being declared the winner. 


Scouting the Royals
Bethel enters today’s game having lost two straight games. The Royals dropped MIAC games to St. John’s and St. Thomas over the past fortnight. They started the conference season with convincing wins over St. Olaf and Hamline…the Royals are led by sophomore running back Phil Porta. Porta currently leads the MIAC in rushing yardage, and all-purpose yardage. Porta is averaging a very impressive 171.8 yards per game on the ground. Last week against the Tommies, he rushed for over 175 yards. He has only been held under 130 yards one time this year (vs. St. John’s) and has a season-high of 225 yards (St. Olaf). Bethel will be featuring a freshman quarterback. Ben Wetzell started for the first time last week and went 9-for-19 for 123 yards. Defensively, the team ranks second in the league against the pass. They were led by senior Matt Wassink who ranks 12th in the MIAC in tackles. He is out for the game due to a broken hand. 

National Leaders
Even after Concordia's tussle with St. John's, several individuals remain among the national statistical leaders. Brian Schumacher is now eighth in passing efficiency (169.9). Andrew Passanante drops to 15th in receiving yards per game (106.3) and 23rd in receptions per game (6.8). He dropped out of punt return average. The defensive players did not lose much ground after turning in a stellar performance against the Johnnies. Josh Dietz is tied for 13th in solo tackles (7.3). A pair of defensive secondary players are among the national leaders. Jordan Talge, who burst on the scene last week is now tied for 27th in interceptions per game (0.7) and tied for 23rd in passes defended (1.7). Tanner Radermacher, after his two interception game, is tied with talge for 27th in interceptions. 

Kicker Brian Halverson regained his spot among the top five kickers in the nation. He is currently tied for fourth in filed goals per game (1.5).

As a team, Concordia dropped a little in overall defense but remained solid in rush defense. The Cobbers are  tenth in total defense (215.2) and fifth in rushing defense (53.5). The Cobbers are also tied for 13th in scoring defense (12.0). Finally, the Cobber defense made a huge leap in turnover margin. Concordia went from a tie for 23rd to a tie for 14th (+1.5).

Phil Porta is the lone individual and team representative among the national statistical leaders for Bethel. Porta is sixth in rushing yardage per game (161.2) and ninth in all-purpose yards per game (180.2). 



89th Season of Cobber Football
The 2004 season marks Concordia’s 89th year of intercollegiate football, and the Cobbers hold an all-time record of 433-246-39 …Football was started at Concordia in 1916 by Mr. A. M. Sattre. The first game for the Cobbers was against Valley City Normal. Valley City won that game 12-0…Concordia has won three national championships and won the MIAC on 17 different occasions.

Cobbers vs. Royals News and Notes

Cobber News and Notes

Cobbers Sweep MIAC Weekly Awards
Three Concordia players were honored with MIAC Player of the Week honors after the Cobbers' 21-20 victory over defending national champion St. John's on Saturday. It marks the eighth time that a Cobber player has won player of the week honors this season. That is the most of any school in the conference. Brian Schumacher was named the Offensive Player of the Week, Brody Clarke was named the Defensive Player of the Week and kicker Brian Halverson was named the Special teams Player of the Week. Schumacher ran for a game-high 114 yards and threw for one TD against the Johnnies. Clarke made a key play by tackling a Johnnie running back for a safety and Halverson kicked two field goals – one with 24 seconds left to win the game. 



Poll Cobbs, Poll
Concordia leapfrogged into the top ten in two of three major polls this week. The Cobbers are currently ranked 8th in the latest Don Hansen Football Gazette poll. They are also ranked 10th in the D3football.com poll and 12th in the AFCA poll. 


Brilliant Beginning, Brilliant
One word can describe Concordia ‘s start to the 2004 campaign – “Brilliant”. The Cobbers are the only unbeaten team left in the MIAC. Their 6-0 start marks the best beginning to a season since the 1997 campaign when they also went 6-0 to start the year. 

The longest winning streak to open a season in the past 20 years is eight games. The 1988 Concordia team went 8-0 at the beginning of the year and finished the season by winning the MIAC title. This is the best start for a Cobber team under current head coach Terry Horan.

The longest winning streak in to open a season in school history is 10 games. The 1964 national championship team won 10 straight before tying Sam Houston of Texas in the championship game. 

Top Cobber Starts in the Past 40 Years:
1942: 6-0
1997: 6-0
1988: 8-0
1964: 10-0
1969: 10-0


And Then There Were 16!
Concordia is one of only 16 teams in NCAA Division III football that remain unbeaten. 229 teams started the year with dreams of an undefeated season and only a handful remain. The Cobbers are joined by the likes of  Linfield, Trinity (TX) and Mount Union. 

Big "D", Even Bigger "Fence" 
Co-Defensive Coordinators Scott Lucier and Dave Klug have quietly assembled a defensive juggernaut. At times being overlooked by the offense, the Cobber defense is making sure that opponents are unable to hold onto the ball for long stretches of time and are unable to make key plays in key situations.

Case in point, St. John's received the ball in the third quarter on their own 48, Concordia's 46 and Concordia's 38 - twice in a row. They were only able to manage seven points for the entire 15 minutes and the Cobber defense was able to completely swing the momentum of the game.

For the game, the Concordia defense allowed St. John's a mere 60 yards on the ground, 165 yards below their season average. On the day, the Johnnies gained 309 yards in total offense. That is their lowest offensive total since November 8, 2002. 

The Cobbers are currently the #1 ranked defensive team in the MIAC. They are tops in overall defense and rushing defense. Concordia is limiting opponents to only 221.8 yards of total offense and a scant 46.4 rushing yards. They also lead the league in red-zone defense and turnover margin.

Individually, the Cobbers have the  top two interception leaders in the conference. Tanner Radermacher  had two “picks” against St. John’s and leads the MIAC with four. Fellow secondary teammate Jordan Talge is tied for second with three interceptions. Talge is also tied for the league lead in passes defended (8). 



Steady Eddy 
Senior running back Ed Oehlers continues to enjoy a banner senior year. The punishing runner scored a touchdown and ran for 86 yards in the Cobbers’ win over St. John’s. He routinely picked up key third and fourth down short yardage situations. He battered the Johnnie defensive line all day long and helped the Cobbers hold the ball for over 40 minutes against the Johnnies. 


The Ice Man Cometh
Cobber kicker Brian Halverson booted the winning field goal in the dying seconds in game against St. John’s. Halverson’s 30-yard kick was one of two he made on the day. Early in the second quarter he connected on a 40-yard attempt. The 40-yard field goal is his longest of the season and second longest of his career.

He currently leads the MIAC in field goals per game (1.20) and scoring by a kicker (36 pts.). On the season, he is 9-for-12 in field goal attempts and 21-for-22 in extra point conversions. He only needs three more field goals to break the school record for field goals in a season.
