Special Game at Puget Sound

In a game that can really only be described as special, the Lewis and Clark Pioneers defeated the Puget Sound Loggers 68-64.

In this game Lewis and Clark:
Broke a 48-year scoring record, setting a new record at 68
Had 575 yards of Total Offense
Held the Loggers to -7 yards rushing
The Teams broke a combined scoring record in the NWC with 132 comined points

With this Win:
LC has its first road conference win since 2002
LC starts with 2 conference wins for the first time since 1997
LC has a 4-2 start for the first time since 1995

As if the records and the firsts weren't enough, the game was won with 1.7 seconds left on the clock, as Keith Welch found Shawn Evans in the back of the endzone to take the lead 67-64. This play followed a 23 yard kickoff return, a 39 yard pass from Welch to Evans, and a heartbreaking incompletion that was overturned from a touchdown on a pass from Welch to Andrew Frisina. Everyone at Peyton Field was on the edge of their seats until the clock hit 0:00 and the Pios left with a victory.
