The Covid-delayed college football postseason in the NAIA continues.
FIRST SEMIFINAL – The NORTHWESTERN (IA) COLLEGE RED RAIDERS took down the two-time defending national champions, the MORNINGSIDE COLLEGE MUSTANGS. The Red Raiders visited the champs and spent most of the game chasing them. A 14-9 1st Quarter edge for the Mustangs became 27-23 by Halftime. The 3rd Quarter ended with Morningside College on top 34-29 but in the 4th Northwestern College roared back to win the game 44-41.
SECOND SEMIFINAL – This game pitted the LINDSEY WILSON COLLEGE BLUE RAIDERS against the visiting KEISER UNIVERSITY SEAHAWKS. The opening Quarter promised another classic like the 1st Semifinal with a 14-14 tie to end the opening Quarter. However, from that point on the Blue Raiders shut out the Seahawks, leading them 24-14 at the Half and 31-14 in the 3rd Quarter before finishing them off in the 4th by a score of 38-14. It will be Red Raiders vs Blue Raiders in the National Championship Game on May 10th.
