Lions Football Defeats Pittsburg State By A 45-11 Score

The Lindenwood football team picked up one of its biggest wins of its NCAA era on Saturday in Pittsburg, Kan. The Lions went into the Jungle and defeated Pittsburg State by a 45-11 score.

Moment of the Game
Lindenwood has struggled coming out of halftime early this season, but came out of the locker room in this game and outscored the Gorillas 17-0 in the third quarter. Travis Spraul kicked a field goal a few minutes into the quarter, and Calen Campbell and DeSean Warren had touchdowns. The big quarter put the team up 31-3.

Lindenwood Defense
- Pittsburg State came into the game averaging over 40 points a game, but the Lions were able to keep them out of the endzone for the first 50 minutes.
- Lindenwood held the Gorillas to just 21-of-54 passing, and it intercepted three passes.
- The Lions allowed just 4.2 yards per play.

First Quarter (Lindenwood led 14-0)
- Lindenwood had momentum early in the game after the defense forced a turnover on downs in Pittsburg State's first possession. The Lions stopped the Gorillas for no game on a fourth-and-one play.

- Lindenwood scored again on a 46-yard touchdown pass from Najee Jackson to Deantrell Prince.

Second Quarter (Lindenwood led 14-3)
- The Lions defense got another boost when Pittsburg State went on a 17-play drive, but had to settle for a field goal.
- Neither team was able to score the rest of the half. Lindenwood held an opposing team without a touchdown for the first half for the third straight game.

Third Quarter (Lindenwood led 31-3)
- Pittsburg State had to punt on its first possession and the kick hit a Gorilla player. That led to a short field goal from Travis Spraul.
- The Gorillas punted in each of their next two possessions, and Lindenwood scored touchdowns after both. The first was a 10-yard run by Calen Campbell, and the second was a 19-yard pass play from Jackson to DeSean Warren.

Missouri Baptist beats Saint Ambrose 42-37

On another scorching hot day in front of over 800 fans, Missouri Baptist gave its supporters a thrilling upset victory. The Spartans rumbled for 252 yards and five rushing scores on the way to a 42-37 win over Saint Ambrose (Iowa), who is sitting just outside the NAIA Top 25 this week.

Missouri Baptist’s offense showed a new look in the first quarter than it had in the 2017 season thus far. The Spartans (1-3) put together a big lead to start the game as Chase Brown found his two top targets early and posted a 14-3 lead just five minutes into the game.

The Spartan signal caller hit Isaiah King for a 21 yard gain to get things started on the first drive before Kendall Davis put his team on the board. The sophomore from Edwardsville, Ill., scampered into the end zone to make it a 6-0 game. The touchdown also gave Missouri Baptist its first lead of the season. Just minutes later, after a field goal from the Fighting Bees, the Spartans extended the lead.

On the second drive, Brown found his other big target, D’Ante Cox. The freshman snagged a short pass and turned-on the jets to take the ball 79 yards to the house to give the Spartans a 14-3 lead.

The second turnover of the game and a muffed punt marred the quick start, however, and put the Fighting Bees right back in it.

On fourth and seven, Missouri Baptist was flagged for roughing the kicker, which gave the Fighting Bees a first down and set-up their first touchdown. Justice O’Connor broke through for a 50-yard rush which put his team at first and goal. Quarterback Jake Romani found Baylee Hopps in the end zone for a three-yard touchdown pass to make it 14-10.

On the ensuing Missouri Baptist drive, the Fighting Bees’ defense found paydirt. Jake Schramm picked-off Chase Brown and went 50 yards the other way to give his team the lead, but the advantage was short-lived.

Just prior to the end of the quarter, Devin Griffin made his triumphant return to the field with a 21-yard reception to put the Spartans in great field position at the Saint Ambrose 16-yard line. Austin Schultz started the second quarter with a touchdown on the first drive of the period to give the Spartans the lead back and the team never relinquished the lead.

Midway through the second quarter, a big play by Keenan Savage redeemed the linebacker from an earlier muffed punt. Savage returned a Kenny Rowe punt 73 yards to the five-yard line which set-up Austin Schultz’s second score of the game to give the home team a 28-17 lead heading into halftime.

After the half, Saint Ambrose began to pick it up offensively, but thanks to the stout running attack, led by Davis, the Spartans held-on to the upset win.

Savage was outstanding in a game where the leaders were needed to step-up and play their part. The senior finished the game with 13 tackles, eight of them solo, 2.5 tackles for a loss and a forced fumble in the third quarter.

Overall, the day belonged to Davis. The sophomore running back had a career day, rushing for 200 yards and three touchdowns, all career highs. His longest run came on a 64-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter, which proved to be the game winner.

Dontrail Johnson put icing on the cake late in the contest. The linebacker intercepted a Jake Romani pass with under 10 seconds left to seal the win for Missouri Baptist.

With the win, the Spartans will exit their three-game home stand 1-2, but will have an opportunity to make-up some ground in the MidStates Mideast Division in the coming weeks. Missouri Baptist will head to Siena Heights (Mich.) next weekend before returning back to the Metro Area for a date with the Lindenwood-Belleville (Lynx).
