Westminster can't rally in season-ending home loss

The Blue Jays dropped their season-finale to Upper Midwest Athletic Conference opponent St. Scholastica 34-28 at Priest Field on Saturday. Westminster (5-5, 3-3 UMAC) were outgained 345-321 by the visiting Saints (7-3, 5-2 UMAC) as they were unable to end the season on a three-game winning streak.

Freshman quarterback Scott Rodgers and senior signal caller Dan Franklyn combined to complete 13-of-28 passes for 243 and two touchdown passes. St. Scholastica took a 7-6 lead on a 36-yard touchdown pass from Alex Thiry to Don Anderson in the first quarter and never relinquished that advantage.

A touchdown run by Blue Jays sophomore running back Chris Starkey brought Westminster to within one point but a late touchdown pass by St. Scholastica put the Saints in front for good. Starkey ran for two touchdowns and 48 yards on the ground while junior receiver Carl Givens caught eight passes for 164 yards and a score.
