The Saints came within three points of winning their third-straight game, but instead, KMS fell to Parkers Prairie, 14-12, in the Saints’ annual Homecoming game, Friday night in Murdock.

Both teams had two touchdowns, but Parkers Prairie added two extra-point kicks, while the Saints went empty on their two conversion attempts.

KMS, which falls to 2-3 overall and 2-2 in the Mid-State District, held a 13-6 edge in first downs and 256-182 in total yards, but the Saints hurt themselves with nine penalties and one lost fumble.

“The story of this game was too many penalties, including many on mental mistakes, along with some close spots that didn’t go our way,” KMS head coach Eric Kauffmann said.  “This is a hard one to swallow.  We had two close short-yardage plays near our end zone that really cost us, both coming up short of a first down by an inch.  This a game of inches and it proved that again tonight.”

KMS is set to play at Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa this Friday at 7 p.m.  Only three regular-season games remain before the start of playoffs, Tuesday, Oct. 25...
