Saints Lose Overtime Thriller Against #1 Cumberlands in NAIA Semi-Final

Posted: Updated:

The #3 ranked Carroll Saints lost 34-27 on the road in Williamsburg, Kentucky to #1 ranked Cumberlands in the NAIA SemI-Final.

After a thrilling four quarters of play, the Saints and Patriots were tied 27-27. In the overtime period, the Patriots had the first possession and converted a touchdown making it 34-27.  That score would stand as on the ensuing possession, the Saints' Dakota Stonehouse was sacked on 4th down to end the game and the season for Carroll.

Head coach Mike Van Diest is proud of his team's effort but is disappointed they could not come out with the win and make the championship game.

"It's a good season. I'm very excited about our football program.  We came back after last year's disappointment with a 7-4 record.  These guys came back and won 12 games and we're one game short of our goal and that's to get back to Rome, Georgia.  But this number 1 team today played well and made more plays than we did.  I probably didn't have a good game plan at times and they took advantage of it.  Their quarterback did a great job.  He was unbelievable and we didn't stop him today."

Cumberlands will now move on to the NAIA championship game where they will play Grand View.  Both Cumberlands and Grand View will be playing in their first-ever championship game, when the two sides square off in Rome, GA., on Dec. 21.
