Football falls at Presentation

Despite gaining 516 yards of total offense and possessing the ball for nearly 36 minutes, the Jimmie football team found itself on the wrong end of a 40-22 score Saturday night.

Jimmy Hatch (118) and Jackson He (112) combined for 230 of UJ's 268 yards on the ground, while Dylan Klatt threw for 248 and three scores, as the Jimmies posted their highest single-game yardage total of the year.

Presentation scored three first-half touchdowns, including a 40-yard interception return by Eric Bell, to build a 20-7 halftime lead. Jamestown found themselves down 27-7 after an Austin Eggl 27-yard pass to William Moffett with 12 seconds left in the third.

Klatt completed 17 of 37 passes to seven different receivers in the game, including four to He and three each to Tyler Shurtz, James Hagen, and Branden Edwards. Shurtz had a team-high 77 yards receiving and Hagen 76.

Defensively, the Jimmies were led by Keith Rogers and Caleb Ellingson with eight tackles each. Rogers was also credited with a forced fumble and fumble recovery and three pass breakups.

The win improves the Saints' mark to 4-3 overall and 3-2 in NSAA competition. Jamestown falls to 1-6 and 1-3 in the conference.
