Bluejays stay in contention to win title

Staff writer

As the conference race tightened Saturday, the Tabor College football team did its part to stay in it, knocking off No. 15 Friends 20-19. Friends was previously unbeaten in KCAC play. The Bluejays are tied with Ottawa, Sterling, and Friends for first place, all with 4-1 records within the conference.

Running back James Monroe became the school’s all-time leading rusher after a 197-yard performance against the Falcons, and defensive end Terach Antoine earned national defensive player-of-the-week honors. Monroe currently has 3,201 career rushing yards.


The Bluejays play next at 1:30 p.m. Saturday at McPherson College.

Soccer teams struggle

The Tabor women’s soccer team lost both of its games last week, losing 0-2 to Kansas Wesleyan and 1-4 to Friends. The men’s team lost to Kansas Wesleyan 1-2, but defeated Friends 3-2 in double overtime Saturday in Wichita.


The women’s team plays McPherson College at 5 p.m. tonight in McPherson, followed by the men’s teams at 7:30. The Bluejays play Bethany at home on Saturday, the women starting at 1 p.m., followed by the men at 3:30.
