Lindenwood Rushes Past Missouri Southern

The Lindenwood football team had one of the best rushing days in program history on Saturday afternoon, and it defeated Missouri Southern by a 42-28 score at Hunter Stadium in St. Charles, Mo.

The Lions rushed for 314 yards, their best rushing day since the 2010 season, and it was the seventh-most yards in program history. The Lions averaged 5.3 yards a carry, their second-best mark this season.

For the second straight week, Lindenwood took control of the contest in the second quarter. Missouri Southern led 7-0 after scoring late in the first quarter, but a turnover midway through the second quarter turned the momentum. Connor Harris’ interception gave the Lions the ball near midfield, and it took the team just four plays to score. Alex Faddoul found Deantrell Prince for a 13-yard touchdown pass play.

The defense quickly forced a three-and-out, and a good punt return by Wesley Thomas gave the Lions the ball in Missouri Southern territory. It didn’t take Lindenwood long again to score, needing just five plays before Faddoul found Cooper Janusevskis for a seven-yard touchdown pass.

After another Missouri Southern punt, Faddoul threw one more touchdown pass in the quarter. With 30 seconds remaining before halftime, he completed a long pass to DeSean Warren, and Warren outran the defense for a 61-yard touchdown.

Missouri Southern got within one possession on its second drive of the second half with a touchdown that made the score 21-14. Lindenwood answered though with a 75-yard touchdown drive, capped by a Shakeem Wharton 28-yard run.

Lindenwood’s defense continued to hold down Missouri Southern early in the fourth quarter. It forced a fumble, and Bakari Triggs returned it 39 yards for a touchdown that put the Lions up 35-14. Missouri Southern did score twice late in the fourth quarter, but Lindenwood recovered two onside kicks, and Aaron Daniels sealed the win with a four-yard touchdown run.

The Lions finished with 496 yards of total offense, 32 more than Missouri Southern. Lindenwood forced three turnovers in the game, and it gave up the ball just once. Missouri Southern had more passing yards, but Lindenwood had more yards per attempt and per completion.

Daniels finished with a career-high 180 rushing yards, tying for the 15th-highest in school history. He averaged 6.7 yards per carry. Faddoul rushed for 78 yards, and Wharton and Calen Campbell each had 34 yards.

In his first collegiate start, Faddoul was 10-of-17 passing for 182 yards. He had the three touchdowns and did not throw an interception. Warren caught three passes for 107 yards and the one touchdown.

Defensively, Connor Harris had a team-high 13 tackles and one tackle for loss to go along with his game-changing interception. Roderick Ryles also had an interception, and Nick Granberry had a sack and forced the fumble that Triggs returned for a touchdown.

ST. LOUIS – [BOX SCORE] Missouri Baptist Football looked for an upset win over the Concordia (Mich.) Cardinals, but found one of the toughest running attacks it had faced throughout the season. Concordia rushed for 375 yards in the game en-route to a 58-9 win over the Spartans.

Missouri Baptist (2-8, 2-4 MSFA) struggled on its first drive, but regained its composure after an interception from Gunnar Griffin. On the second drive, after allowing a touchdown drive from the Cardinals, Griffin made-up for the early error.

The Spartan quarterback found Isaiah King down field for another long touchdown pass, a 72-yard connection, and made it a 7-6 game. A blocked point after try kept the score the same as both teams made an early push.

With just over three minutes remaining in the quarter, the Cardinals extended their lead. Concordia put together a 13 play, 71 yard drive, capped-off with a Roderick Dailey touchdown run to make it 14-6 in favor of the home team.

This play in the first quarter, however, was the main highlight of Saturday’s game. Ethan Metzler tacked-on a 33-yard field goal with 14:15 remaining in the 2nd quarter, and the Spartans fell in their final road game of the 2016 season.

Missouri Baptist was led by King and Maleek Ross on the Day. The freshman receiver finished the contest with two receptions for 72 yards while Ross completed his day with seven total tackles.

Concordia’s stout running game kept the pressure on the Spartans for the entirety of Saturday’s contest. Joe Conner finished the day as the rushing leader with 14 carries for 143 yards and a touchdown. Quarterback Tyler Fehler also got into the end zone on a carry. He finished the day with 78 yards on the ground.

Missouri Baptist will be back in action next Saturday, November 12 at 1:00 p.m. when they welcome the Lyon College (Ark.) Scots to town for Senior Day..
