Whitworth falls short at Linfield

MCMINNVILLE, Ore. - Just one more play might have made all the difference, but Whitworth failed to come up with it.  They lost 31-28 at Linfield on Saturday, dropping to 2-3 overall and 0-2 in the NWC, while the Wildcats improved to 3-1 and 2-0.

Whitworth drove 75 yards for Adam Anderson's (Jr., RB, Elk, Wash.) two-yard touchdown run on their first possession.  Linfield responded with a 64 yard drive to tie the game.

Linfield fumbled twice in the first half, but Whitworth couldn't turn those turnovers into points.  However a third Wildcat fumble helped the Pirates score in the second quarter.

Then it was Whitworth's turn to fumble, but they recovered when McLane Stone (Sr., DB, Orcas Island, Wash.) intercepted Linfield QB Cole Franklin and returned the ball 92 yards up the right sideline for a Pirate touchdown.

Just before the half, Linfield took advantage of a short punt to score, heading to the locker room tied at 21.

Linfield came out strong, scoring first in the second half, but the Pirates went 74 yards in 12 plays.  A botched field goal attempt helped Whitworth make a 20 yard run to the endzone.

But Linfield drove 59 yards to the Pirate 19 yard line and made a game-winning kick with 12:17 to play.  Whitworth had two more possessions in the fourth quarter, but the Pirates were unable to gain a first down each time.
