Beacons football back on the road this week

After a quick stop at its own field for homecoming last week, the Concordia Academy football team is playing visitor again this week. The Beacons travel to Columbia Heights for their final road game of the regular season. 

Concordia Academy opened the season with a home game against Spectrum over Labor Day weekend but has played just once at home since then. The Beacons followed up their first game with three-straight away contests before returning home last week to host St. Paul Como Park for homecoming.

Results of the Sept. 30 game against the Cougars were not available for this edition of the Review.

Concordia’s three-game road trip didn’t go so well. The Beacons lost all three games by an average of 34 points and scored only 22 points total.

The most recent game in that stretch was a 45-16 loss to St. Agnes on Sept. 23 at Concordia University’s SeaFoam Stadium. Concordia Academy fell behind by three touchdowns and never recovered.

St. Agnes jumped out to the 21-0 lead on touchdown runs of five and 13 yards and a touchdown pass that covered 29.

The Beacons got on the board in the second quarter when Garrett Johnson found Cory Hackett for a 27-yard touchdown pass. Jordan Osby ran in the two-point conversion attempt to cut the Aggies’ lead to 21-8.

St. Agnes answered with a 20-yard touchdown pass and a 37-yard field to make the score 31-8 at halftime.

The Aggies added two more short touchdown runs in the third quarter. Concordia Academy closed out the scoring on a 36-yard touchdown run by Osby and a two-point conversion pass from Hackett to Austin Moldenhauer.

St. Agnes rolled up 455 yards of offense on the Beacons. The Aggies completed 12 of 14 passes for 206 yards and added 246 yards rushing.

Osby finished with 86 rushing yards on 12 carries while Cooper Wood caught four passes for 36 yards and ran the ball four times for 24 yards. Johnson completed 10 of 18 passes for 85 yards.

The Columbia Heights team that Concordia Academy faces this week picked up its first win of the season in week four by shutting out Breck 20-0. Breck beat Concordia Academy 38-6 in week two.

Columbia Heights opened the season with losses to Minneapolis Edison, Mound Westonka and New Life Academy.
