The Trinity Bible College Lions Football travelled a long distance this past week to Lawrence, Kansas to play Haskell Indian Nations University. The two teams faced each other in the first game of the season in Ellendale. The Lions came out on top in that match up 42 to 35 in overtime. This time around the game had a lot less offense.
After a scoreless first quarter, Haskell found the end zone first on a two yard touchdown run by Brandon Beaton. The Lions would finally score a touchdown of their own with just over one minute left in the first half on a 35 yard punt return for a touchdown by Jerome Lowery (Apopka, FL). The two teams were tied 7-7 at half.
The Lions would take the lead with four and half minutes left in the 3rd quarter on a Bryan Clark (Long Beach, CA) three yard touchdown run. The Clark touchdown would prove to be enough as neither team would score again and the Lions would hold on to win 14-7.
The Lions were led by Bryan Clark on offense with 99 yards on 21 carries and he also went seven of 24 passing for 31 yards. Jerome Lowery had two punt returns for 43 yards including, a 35 yard one he took for a touchdown. Ryan Wolfenden (Wadena, MN) led the Lions on defense with eight total tackles, with one for loss. Josh Conner (Nebraska City, NE) added three tackles with one for loss to go with and interception.
With the win the Lions finished their 2011 season with a 5-5 record, the best record in recent memory. The Lions would like to thank all of the fans who have followed and supported the football team this season! We look forward to putting another great product on the field next year!
