@ St. Olaf L 33-40

 

Light rain fell on October 7, as the Pipers made their way onto the Ollies’ homefield. The homefield advantage and weather gave the Ollies a major advantage as they finished the first quarter strong with a 6-21 lead.

Going into the last quarter the score remained 26-34 in favor of the Ollies. St. Olaf knew that they had to stop the Pipers from gaining on them and scored a touchdown. The Pipers quickly returned fire, setting the score 33-40. After a series of back and forth, St. Olaf was deemed the winner.
