Saturday was a good day for the Jimmies down in Sioux City, Iowa.

The University of Jamestown football team won its first game of the season with a 17-10 win over Briar Cliff University. The Jimmies improved to 1-5 overall, while Briar Cliff dropped 1-6.

UJ will face Dakota Wesleyan Nov. 14 at 1 p.m. at the Bismarck Community Bowl.

Cade Torgerson started things off for the Jimmies with 9:17 remaining in the first quarter with a seven-yard touchdown pass to Javon Bowie. An extra point kick by Izaak Myles made it 7-0 Jimmies.

Briar Cliff responded with a 24-yard field goal with 6:36 left to play in the half.


It looked like the lead was going to be four heading into halftime, but seven seconds was all the Jimmies needed to extend the lead.

Torgerson tossed a 13-yard TD pass to Micah Madyun to make it 14-3 Jimmies. UJ's three-play, 40-yard drive took all of 22 seconds.

Briar Cliff's one touchdown came with 5:51 left in the third when Cayden Mitchell ran in from one yard out. The Jimmies sealed the deal just under three minutes later when Myles put the ball through the uprights from 32 yards out.
