Luther lost a hard-fought 23-22 decision to Presentation College this afternoon in Aberdeen, S.D.
The Norse produced 431 yards of total offense, most of which came on the ground. JJ Sirios and Josh Vos rushed for 140 and 110 yards respectively leading the ground attack to 413 yards.
Defensively, the Norse held the Saints to 203 yards of total offense, but three lost Norse fumbles and a couple of special team mistakes, gave the Saints great field possession that led to scores.
Individually, Cody Berger picked off two passes and Eric Pittman recovered the Saints lone fumble of the afternoon.
Presentation scored what proved to be the winning touchdown at 4:48 after turning a Luther fumble into a 50-yard go-ahead drive.
The Norse had an opportunity to win on the final play of the game. Starting from their own 29, the Norse drove to the Presentation 17-yard line, but missed a 35-yard field goal wide left as time expired.
Luther will return to action one week from today when it will host St. Olaf College at 1:00 p.m. This game will be video streamed.
