Presbyterian edged a school from the National Christian College Athletic Association despite losing the turnover battle 4-1 — with two interceptions and two fumbles.

Hayden floated a 41-yard TD pass to Kibby to tie it at 7-all late in the opening half. Hayden later passed for 66 yards during a 13-play drive, capped by a 9-yard pass to Warner for a 14-7 lead. Warner’s 13-yard touchdown catch made it 21-7 early in the fourth quarter.
