Bemidji State Football’s Magic Runs Out


>>>THE BSU’S FOOTBALL TEAMS CINDERELLA MAGIC RAN OUT ON SATURDAY. THE CARRIAGE TURNED BACK INTO A PUMPKIN, AND THE BEAVERS WERE UNABLE TO PULL OFF THEIR THIRD STRAIGHT FOURTH QUARTER COMEBACK AS THEY TOOK THEIR SECOND LOSS OF THE THE YEAR FALLING TO WINONA STATE. ON A WINDY AFTERNOON AT CHET ANDERSON STADIUM, THE WARRIORS STRUCK QUICKLY. LESS THAN TWO MINUTES IN, OWEN BURKE FINDS A WIDE OPEN TYLER ANDERSON FOR THE 47 YARD TOUCHDOWN, AND THEY LEAD 7 NOTHING. LATER IN THE FIRST, THE BEAVERS ANSWER. JALEN FRYE RUNNING THE WILDCAT, NEARLY UNTOUCHED FOR THE SCORE AND WE’RE TIED UP AT 7. BEAVERS DEFENSE DID THEIR PART, RECORDING SIX SACKS AND TWO INTERCEPTIONS, BOTH BY MIKEY JUNKER. BUT THE BSU OFFENSE GOT IN THEIR OWN WAY, COSTLY PENALTIES AND FIVE PICKS, INCLUDING THIS ONE HANDED SNAG BY NICK PRIDGEON. IN THE FOURTH, BSU DOWN 20 TO 7, ANOTHER WILDCAT RUN BY FRYE MAKES IT A ONE SCORE GAME. BUT WINONA USES A SHORT FIELD AFTER A PICK TO PUNCH ANOTHER TOUCHDOWN. THAT WOULD BE YOUR DAGGER. BEAVERS HAD A POSSIBLE TOUCHDOWN, RULED OUT OF BOUNDS ON A FINAL DRIVE, AND THE BEAVERS UNABLE TO DELIVER IN THE FOURTH AS THEY FALL 27 TO 14.>>WE HAD TURNOVERS. WE HAD PENALTIES THAT REALLY HURT US DOWN THERE. WE HAD THE PASS INTERFERENCE. WE HAD A BAD SNAP ON THERE AND ANOTHER ONE. AS I TOLD THE GUYS, YOU KNOW, YOU ARE LIVING ON THE EDGE QUITE A BIT. WE HAVE BEEN RIGHT THERE A FEW WEEKS, BUT IT CAUGHT UP WITH US AND IT WAS A MATTER OF EXECUTION TO BE HONEST WITH YOU >>THEY ARE HARD-NOSED. DEFINITELY A HARD-FOUGHT BATTLE TODAY WHICH TAKES A TOLL ON THE BODY ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU HAVE INJURIES. THAT’S JUST WHAT GOT US TODAY.>>BEAVERS BACK ON THE ROAD NEXT
