However, Drake’s defense and rushing attack stymied the Crusaders’ comeback hopes. “We kept fighting. We didn’t play clean football, but we made some big plays and our safeties really stepped up down the stretch,” said Drake head coach Rick Fox.The Bulldogs picked off four passes on the day, three of them in the final five minutes of the game including a 38-yard interception return for a touchdown by Sean Lynch (Hawthorn Woods, Ill.) to account for the 17-point win and the Bulldogs’ 15th-straight win over the Crusaders.”That was so big for us the way they stepped up,” Fox said of the secondary. “Valpo couldn’t run the ball, so we knew they were going to be throwing it and if they were going to try to beat us, it would be through the air.”The win sets up a potential clash for first place in the Pioneer Football League next weekend when first-place and currently unbeaten San Diego visits Drake Stadium for a 1 p.m. kickoff.Drake’s defense came into the game with the No. 1 defense in the Pioneer Football League and the Bulldogs’ defense lived up to its billing by holding Valpo to 338 total yards. Lynch led the defense with nine tackles in addition to his touchdown. Will Warner (Pella, Iowa) also added a pair of interceptions and Nathan Clayberg (Pella, Iowa) had 2.5 tackles per loss.Offensively, Drake (5-2, 4-1 PFL) was led by Grant Kraemer’s (Northridge, Calif.) 240 yards passing. Despite facing more pressure than he has in recent weeks, Kraemer completed four touchdown passes. The second of those two strikes was to Steven Doran (Germantown, Wis.) for Doran’s ninth touchdown reception of the season and two others found the hands of Zach DeLeon (Leawood, Kan.)Drew Lauer (St. Peters, Mo.) had his second-straight 100-yard rushing game with 116 yards and touchdown. Valparaiso’s (1-7, 1-4 PFL) ground attack was limited to just 27 yards.Mitch McFarlane (Fond du Lac, Wis.) hauled in the first score of the day when Kraemer perfectly laid a ball over McFarlane’s shoulder from 15 yards out to complete a 13-play, 76-yard drive on the Bulldogs’ first possession of the game.Valpo answered with a 14-play drive that ended with a 33-yard field goal with two minutes left in the first quarter. Drake extended its lead in the opening minutes of the second quarter with Kraemer’s connection to Doran from nine yards to cap a 75-yard drive and put Drake up 14-3. Drake stretched its lead to 21-3 as time expired in the second half when Drew Lauer (St. Peters, Mo.) dove in from a yard out on fourth-and-goal. That score was a result of the defense, which allowed just one rushing yard in the first half, forcing a Valpo punt with 2:26 left in the half.That was all the time the offense needed to drive 60 yards and take a comfortable, 21-3, halftime lead. Valpo marched 73 yards to open the third quarter and score its first touchdown of the day on an 8-yard TD pass, but Drake remained comfortably in control of the contest. The Bulldogs asserted that control in the fourth quarter by going 85 yards in eight plays with Zach DeLeon (Leawood, Kan.) hauling in a 26-yard touchdown pass for his second touchdown reception of the season.DeLeon scored again less than a minute later thanks to Will Warner (Pella, Iowa) intercepting a pass on Valpo’s next play from scrimmage. After three runs by Lauer, Kraemer dropped a pass into DeLeon’s hands just beyond the line of scrimmage that DeLeon took 14 yards into the endzone to give Drake a 35-10 lead with 13 minutes left in the contest.Valparaiso answered with a pair of quick touchdowns before the Bulldog secondary put its foot down with three interceptions in the final five minutes.Terry Wallen (Brookfield, Wis.) recorded the first of those with 4:53 left in the contest followed by Lynch’s touchdown on the Crusaders’ next drive. Two plays later, Warner picked off his second pass of the day and returned it 42 yards to the Valpo 10-yard line with three minutes left in the contest to seal the victory.The win was Drake’s second-straight on the road as the team returns to hospitable Drake Stadium for its next two contests beginning with the Nov. 3 contest against PFL leader San Diego.
