Tabor moves to No. 11 after homecoming win

Staff writer

The Tabor College Bluejays moved up one spot to No. 11 in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics rankings by defeating unbeaten Kansas Wesleyan 14-7 in Saturday’s homecoming contest. Kansas Wesleyan was ranked No. 15.

Kansas Wesleyan scored first but the Bluejays held them to just 7 points the remainder of the first half. After a 99-yard drive, Tabor scored with one minute, 29 seconds left in the half. The extra point tied the game at 7-7.

After the Bluejays scored on their first possession of the second half and took a 7-point lead, the game turned into a defensive battle with the teams trading punts. Each team had a possession in which they were stopped at the 1-yard line.

Tabor missed a field goal late in the fourth quarter, and a defensive player knocked down a Kansas Wesleyan pass in the end zone as time expired.

Tabor is undefeated in conference play and 6-1 overall. The Bluejays will play Friends at 1:30 p.m. Saturday in Wichita.
