PUYALLUP — Quarterback Dalton Ritchey scored three rushing touchdowns, cornerback Tayler Angevine returned an interception 80 yards for a score, and Pacific Lutheran made a statement Saturday with a 41-27 Northwest Conference football win over No. 19 Willamette at Sparks Stadium.

With their third consecutive victory, which came at the expense of previously unbeaten Willamette, the Lutes (4-2 overall) move into second place in the Northwest Conference with a 3-1 record.

Linfield (3-0) leads while Willamette (6-1 overall) drops back to third in the standings at 2-1.

At Azusa Pacific 24,

Central Washington 17

Nick Owens threw a 53-yard pass to Kyle Dravis with 49 seconds remaining as Azusa Pacific (1-7, 1-6 GNAC) earned its first Division II victory against the Wildcats (5-3, 5-2).

The Wildcats had a chance on their last drive, which started at the Azusa Pacific 32 after an unsportsmanlike-conduct penalty. But Ryan Robertson's pass on third down was intercepted by Nick Grunsky, and the Cougars ran out the clock.

Central's Demetrius Sumler scored on a 1-yard run and 9-yard pass in the fourth quarter.

At Louisiana Tech 70,

Idaho 28

Louisiana Tech amassed 839 yards in total offense in a dominant victory against Idaho.

Kenneth Dixon rushed for 232 yards and six touchdowns for the Bulldogs (6-1, 1-0 Western Athletic Conference), and Colby Cameron was 29 of 37 for 400 yards and two touchdowns passing. Myles White caught six passes for 100 yards and a score.

The 839 yards also were a school record and the most by a Football Bowl Subdivision team this season.

The Vandals fell to 1-7 and 1-2 in the WAC.

At Whitworth 70,

Puget Sound 11

Whitworth forced six turnovers to key a win over Puget Sound in Spokane.

The Loggers (0-6, 0-3 NWC) had five passes intercepted, including two that were returned for touchdowns. A windy day in Spokane had its affects on the usually proficient Logger passing game and the Loggers were never able to get into a flow offensively. Whitworth took advantage of the wind with its strong ground game and stiff defense.

Scott Carr's 29-yard interception return for a touchdown highlighted a three-score first quarter for the Pirates (6-2, 2-2 NWC) as they sprinted out to a big lead.

Ronnie Thomas led Whitworth 122 yards on 23 carries and a pair of touchdowns. Bryan Peterson was 11 of 13 for 183 yards and four touchdowns.
