BUTTE (AP) -- A 1-yard touchdown run by Josh Johnson lifted
Montana Tech to the third-quarter lead it would keep Saturday in
defeating two-time defending NAIA champion Carroll College 17-14.
The loss ended top-ranked Carroll's 24-game winning streak.
Johnson, who went 82 yards on 16 carries, capped a 6-play drive
that started on Carroll's 35-yard line after the Saints were forced
to punt into a stiff wind. Dan Kleckner kicked the extra point and
added a 30-yard field goal later in the quarter to give Tech (4-2,
2-1 Frontier) a 17-7 lead.
Carroll (5-1, 3-1) completed a 12-play, 71-yard drive with 2
minutes, 13 seconds left in the game to make it 17-14. The Saints
first appeared to score on the 71-yard pass that started the
advance, but the play was called back because Carroll had only six
men on the line of scrimmage.
After pulling within 17-14, Carroll recovered an onside kick and
had one final drive. The Saints ran out of downs when a Tyler
Emmert pass attempt to Kevin McCutcheon fell incomplete with about
25 seconds remaining.
Emmert completed 24 of 42 pass attempts for 251 yards, but also
threw a first-quarter interception that let the Orediggers take an
early lead. Nathan Prach tipped the pass, then returned it 45 yards
to Carroll's 5-yard line. A facemask violation, then a leap by
fullback Kevin Dighans put Tech up 7-0.
Carroll tied the game in the second quarter with a 14-yard
Emmert pass to Dustin Michaelis.
The Saints gave up 108 yards on 12 penalties, compared to Tech's
five penalties for 40 yards.
