UJ: Hastings, Neb. – Hastings College scored the go-ahead touchdown with 14:14 to play and made it hold up as the University of Jamestown football team lost 17-10 Saturday afternoon at Lloyd Wilson Field.

The Jimmies’ record is now 0-4 overall (0-3 GPAC) while the Broncos improve to 3-1 overall (2-1 GPAC).

UJ was the first to find the end zone as Carlos Julian hauled in a 19-yard pass from Ty Monson with 3:31 left in the first quarter. Aanon Peterson made the extra point and the score was 7-0 in favor of the Jimmies.

Hastings tied the game with an 82-yard, nine play drive that finished with a nine-yard toss from Eli Nappe to Tanner-James Friend at the 14:17 mark. The Broncos later took their first lead of the game on a 24-yard field goal by Casper Feijen, making the score 10-7 with 3:29 left in the half. 

On the ensuing kickoff, Julian put the Jimmies in excellent field position following a 53-yard return to the Hastings 22-yard line. UJ got as far as the 11-yard line twice on the drive, but settled for a 29-yard field goal by Peterson as the clock expired to end the half.

Jamestown’s defense came up with a goal-line stand in the third quarter, stalling out a Bronco drive that began at midfield. On fourth-and-one from the Jimmie 2-yard line, Nappe was stopped by Mason Parker for no gain. However, the following Jimmie drive resulted in a punt and Hastings had the ball at the UJ 40.

Nappe led the Broncos on the only scoring drive of the second half, completing a 16-yard pass to Will Austin 46 seconds into the fourth quarter. 

The Jimmies had a pair of sustained drives to finish out the game, but neither led to the end zone. An 11-play, 63-yard drive took Jamestown down to the Hastings 15, but ended with Monson getting sacked and Hastings recovering a fumble. Then with 5:05 left, UJ started at their own 28-yard line and got down to the Hastings 19, but an intentional grounding penalty put the Jimmies at second and 25 from the Hastings 34. The Bronco defense came up with a sack to take over with 36 seconds left.

Jamestown did nearly all of their offensive damage through the air, with Monson completing 20-of-34 passes for 202 of team’s 222 total yards. 

Micah Madyun had five catches for 27 yards, and Cody Pellaton hauled in a 40-yard pass for the game’s longest play. JJ Williams had 19 yards on six carries.

Parker finished with 13 total tackles (eight solo). Paul Vandal had two tackles for loss as part of his seven total stops. Tyler Dean had UJ’s only sack.

The Jimmies return home to host Doane (Neb.) Saturday, September 23 at 1 p.m.
