UMD Football Continues to Find Ways to Win Close Games

UMD will be back at home this weekend as they host Concordia-St. Paul for their annual Homecoming Game.

DULUTH, Minn. – The UMD football team grinded out another win this past weekend on the road against the University of Mary. This makes it four straight weeks where the game was decided by less than a touchdown as the Bulldogs continue to find ways to win close games.

“Yeah it’s our ability to finish. In our offseason training or even in-season training, we really focus on all four quarters of our workouts, especially sometimes even getting in overtime scenarios of extra running or extra lifting,” team captain Nate Pearson said.

“It says a lot about this group. Every single game has come down to the last thing and that’s really how you tell how good a team really is. We just rally around each other and get out of there with a win so it was good for sure,” said quarterback Logan Graetz.

“Unfortunately we gave up another fourth-quarter lead, but fortunately we were able to come back. At this point right now in the season, we’re accustomed to battling in the fourth quarter and fortunate again that we came out on top,” head coach Curt Wiese said.
