The Gusties managed just 23 yards on Heflin's 13 stops, and it was his third-straight game with double-digit tackles. His 13 tackles and three TFL led the MIAC Saturday, and his six solo stops ranked third. This season, Heflin's 59 total tackles rank 11th in the MIAC. he has 29 solo tackles and 30 assists to go along with 3.5 tackles-for-a-loss, and he averages 10.0 tackles per game in conference play.

For his performance, Schleusener was named the MIAC Football Special Teams Athlete-of-the-Week for the second week in a row.

Schleusener was a perfect 4-for-4 on PATs and a perfect 2-for-2 on field goals Saturday to score 10 points in the kicking game in Gustavus' latest victory. His two field goals came from 22 and 33 yards out. He was also outstanding as a punter, with a total of 182 yards on four punts for his tremendous 45.5 average. He had a long of 57 yards, two inside the 20 and one touchback. Schleusener's 55 points leads all MIAC kickers, and he's 8-for-13 on field goals and 31-for-34 on PATs this season.

Gustavus is a game behind a trio of teams tied for second place at 5-2 in the league. The Gusties conclude their 2013 season Saturday with a trip to Moorhead, Minn., to face No. 24-ranked Concordia (7-2, 5-2 MIAC) in a tough final test.
