I didn’t put up the college football results from the NAIA the other day to gauge the reaction. Enough readers DO still want the results and were curious about the missing football post, so here we go:
ROAD SHUTOUTS – The BENEDICTINE COLLEGE RAVENS crushed their hosts the CLARKE UNIVERSITY PRIDE to the tune of 38-0 ### Meanwhile the DAKOTA STATE TROJANS dismembered the PRESENTATION COLLEGE SAINTS 42-0 in their own house ### And the CENTRAL METHODIST UNIVERSITY EAGLES likewise won 42-0 at the GRACELAND YELLOW JACKETS.
NO WIN FOR YOU! – The AVE MARIA UNIVERSITY GYRENES kept the visiting FLORIDA MEMORIAL UNIVERSITY LIONS winless. The Lions are playing in their very first year of intercollegiate football and the Gyrenes made them 0-2 with a 42-6 beatdown.
WORKIN’ OVERTIME – The CONCORDIA (NE) BULLDOGS hosted the HASTINGS COLLEGE BRONCOS on Saturday. Four Quarters weren’t enough for these two Great Plains Athletic Conference foes, with Regulation ending in a 28-28 tie. In Overtime Concordia shut out the Broncos then scored a Touchdown to win it 34-28.
RUINING STAFF APPRECIATION DAY – The SOUTHEASTERN UNIVERSITY FIRE visited the SAINT THOMAS UNIVERSITY BOBCATS (should be the Tomcats) on Staff Appreciation Day. The Bobcats probably did NOT appreciate the SIXTY to TWENTY humiliation that Southeastern laid down on them.
ONE-POINT WONDER – The VALLEY CITY STATE VIKINGS welcomed the WALDORF UNIVERSITY WARRIORS. The Vikings were chasing the Warriors 7-3 in the 1st Quarter and 13-10 at Halftime. In the 3rd Quarter VCSU went on top 17-13 then held on in the 4th for a 17-16 victory.
ROAD WARRIORS – The BETHEL (KS) THRESHERS traveled to face the MCPHERSON COLLEGE BULLDOGS (should be Mastiffs) and trounced them 55-21 ### And the defending national champions, the MORNINGSIDE COLLEGE MUSTANGS, improved to 2-0 with a 42-7 clubbing of the MIDLAND UNIVERSITY WARRIORS.
UNDER THE RADAR CLASSIC – In this game the DOANE COLLEGE TIGERS played host to the BRIAR CLIFF UNIVERSITY CHARGERS. The 1st Half saw Defensive Perfection, with neither team scoring. The 3rd Quarter ended with the Chargers up 6-0, but the Tigers exploded in the 4th for a 13-6 triumph.
THESE GAMES WERE FOR THE BIRDS – The DICKINSON STATE BLUE HAWKS almost doubled-up on the visiting MAYVILLE STATE COMETS in a 51-26 rout ### And the FRIENDS UNIVERSITY FALCONS won a much closer 17-7 affair at the TABOR COLLEGE BLUE JAYS.
THE COYOTES HOWL – The KANSAS WESLEYAN UNIVERSITY COYOTES paid a visit to the BETHANY COLLEGE SWEDES Saturday. The Coyotes grabbed a 14-7 1st Quarter edge and never looked back, leading 35-21 at the Half and 45-27 in the 3rd Quarter before winning the game 59-34.
HOME STANDS – The NORTHWESTERN (IA) COLLEGE RED RAIDERS took the field against their guests the visiting DAKOTA WESLEYAN UNIVERSITY TIGERS (should be the Blue Tigers) and totaled them 50-16 ### And the KEISER UNIVERSITY SEAHAWKS smacked down the visiting WEBBER INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY WARRIORS 52-7.
DOUBLING UP ON THE COMPETITION – The CULVER-STOCKTON COLLEGE WILDCATS welcomed the EVANGEL UNIVERSITY CRUSADERS on Saturday. A 7-7 1st Quarter tie became a 16-14 Wildcats edge come Halftime. The 3rd Quarter ended with the Crusaders up 17-16 but Culver-Stockton College scored 18 points in the 4th for a 34-17 victory.
HISTORY IS MADE – The NORTH AMERICAN UNIVERSITY STALLIONS played their very first intercollegiate football game on the 19th against the CMP ACADEMY DRILLERS. The Stallions proved they are serious about gridiron competition, smacking around their guests to the tune of FORTY-NINE to NOTHING! Welcome to the college football world, North American University! It will be interesting to watch their program grow over the years.
