Season-finale victory marks most NWC wins in program history

TACOMA, Washington – The Puget Sound football team marched off of Peyton Field at Baker Stadium with the most Northwest Conference wins in program history.

Brennan Schon totaled a career-best 253 receiving yards on six catches and two touchdowns during the win over Pacific. The junior finished 19 yards shy of Adam Kniffin's single game Puget Sound record.

Peter Bell caught a career-high 13 passes for 74 yards and to touchdowns. Ian Borngrebe also got in the end zone for his second touchdown of 2015.

Chris Beaulaurier recorded 14 tackles against the Boxers as he rounds out the year with 94 tackles. Both William Geary and Zackary Teats came away with interceptions.

The Boxers jumped out to a 14-0 lead in the first six minutes of the game, but the Loggers remained poised. Fortune hit Schon for a 59-yard touchdown pass to put Puget Sound on the board. The Loggers tied the game early in the second quarter thanks to Bell's 14-yard touchdown grab. Pacific regained the lead, 20-14 (missed PAT), with a 32-yard touchdown pass by Warner Shaw, but the Loggers responded just one minute later.

Fortune connected with Schon for a 67-yard touchdown strike that gave Puget Sound a 21-20 edge entering halftime.

Sawyer Petre connected on a 36-yard field goal late in the third quarter, and Borngrebe caught his touchdown pass just three-and-a-half minutes later. Bell hauled in a five-yard touchdown pass early in the fourth quarter.
