10/12 SJU SID
The SJU football team continued its winning ways on Saturday, Oct. 10, by defeating previously unbeaten Bethel, 19-3, in front of a homecoming crowd of nearly 9,000 at Clemens Stadium in Collegeville.  Sophomore Chris Moore, Edina, opened the scoring for the Johnnies in the first quarter on a two-yard run.  The extra point failed and SJU held a 6-0 lead.  Three minutes later,
Bethel scored its only points of the game on a 23-yard field goal by Seth Olson, to cut the score to 6-3.

In the second half, SJU increased its lead to 12-3 on a 42-yard touchdown pass from senior wide receiver Adam Herbst, Sartell, to junior wide receiver Ben Sieben, Melrose.  The Johnnies put the final touches on its fifth straight win late in the fourth quarter on an 11-yard touchdown run by senior Roland Buller, Anoka.  SJU is now 20-0 against the Royals in the all-time series, dating back to 1978.

The SJU defense played an outstanding game, holding the Bethel offense to 203 total yards, including 48 yards in the second half.  Bethel could only manage 44 yards rushing in the game and minus-10 yards in the second half.  The SJU defense has not given up a touchdown in the last seven quarters.  The Johnnie offense had a balanced attack, rushing for 188 and passing for 178 yards.  Chris Moore carried the ball 17 times for 72 yards and one touchdown.  Junior
quarterback Tom Linnemann, Melrose, was 15-for 28 for 136 yards and one interception.  Adam Herbst caught six passes for 84 yards and set a new SJU career record with 167 career receptions.  Herbst's career statistics are currently 167 receptions for 2,539 yards and 35 touchdown receptions.

 SJU is now 5-0 on the season, 4-0 in the MIAC.  This is the 13th time in John  Gagliardi's 46 years at SJU that one of his teams has started the season with  five consecutive wins.  Gagliardi now has 347 career wins in 50 seasons as a  collegiate coach and is 62 wins away from the all-time record set by Eddie  Robinson.  SJU will travel to Concordia-Moorhead on Saturday, Oct. 17.  The  Cobbers enter the game with a 3-2 overall, 3-1 MIAC record.  Kick off is  scheduled for 1 p.m.  The game can be heard live on KKJM-FM (92.9) or on the  SJU sports web site through RealAudio.
