KALAMAZOO, Mich. – The Kalamazoo College football team took a break from Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association action Saturday afternoon but the Hornets were unable to come away with a victory as Wisconsin Lutheran defeated Kalamazoo, 29-7.
The Warriors struck first with 20 seconds remaining in the first quarter when Austin DeNoyer broke into the endzone with a two-yard run.
Wisconsin Lutheran scored the game's first 15 points but Kalamazoo got itself back in the ball game when Clay Wilkey capped off a 65 yard drive midway through the second quarter with a one-yard run.
That's as close at the Horents would get, though. The Warriors tacked on a score with 1:51 remaining in the first half and added the final seven points of the game with 8:07 remaining in the third quarter.
Despite giving up 29 points, the Kalamazoo defense came up with multiple takeaways hoping to give the Hornet offense a boost. Josh Vance recorded an interception while Jake Sypniewski forced a fumble recorded by Sean Bauer.
Kalamazoo wraps up the 2016 season next Saturday with a home game against Albion.
