Concordia University secured their first road win of the season Saturday afternoon, surviving a late drive to beat the Jamestown Jimmies 24-17.
The Bulldogs came into the contest having not won back-to-back games all season after facing top-ranked opponents in Northwestern College and Morningside University. Concordia also came in looking to avenge their loss to Jamestown two years ago in a muddy 13-10 overtime defeat.
The Bulldogs got on the board within the first minute of the contest when quarterback DJ McGarvie connected with wide receiver Korrell Koehlmoos for a 78-yard score. Jamestown would tie the game with a 33-yard touchdown pass of their own, but Concordia would pull away at the end of the first half to maintain a two-score lead.
Jamestown would not give in easily, as quarterback Cade Torgerson would bring the Jimmies within one score in a fourth-quarter drive, capped off by an 11-yard touchdown run by Carlos Julian.
The Jimmies would get the ball back again and drove all the way to the Bulldogs’ 21-yard line. Jamestown’s drive would stall out there after a third-down sack by Logan Kreisel and an incomplete pass gave the ball and the win to Concordia.
Concordia will play against Mount Marty College for its next matchup on October 16.
