Written by Hillsboro Free Press Saturday, 13 October 2007 14:34The Tabor College football team put up 335 yards of offense, but were hampered by four turnovers on Saturday, losing to the Saint Mary Spires 30-14. Quarterback Jason Aubrey keyed two scoring drives in the fourth quarter, but by that time the Bluejays trailed 27-0. A 20-point third quarter posted by the Spires built on a 7-0 halftime lead.
Aubrey went 15-for-32 and connected on a 32-yard touchdown to Jason Medellin with time winding down. Aubrey ran for Tabor's first score, plowing into the end zone from 2 yards out early in the fourth quarter.
Matt Warner, Saint Mary quarterback and Aubrey's counterpart, went 7-of-9 for 106 yards, including a 19-yard toss to Bobby Schattle in the second quarter. Warner also ran for a touchdown midway through the third. Bryan Bosley did most of the damage, chalking up two touchdowns--one that went 62 yards to open the scoring in the second half--and totaling 190 yards on 23 carries. Saint Mary totaled 366 offensive yards.
Apart from Aubrey, the top statistical performer for Tabor was Medellin, who came down with 5 catches for 112 yards. Lance Stubbs caught 5 passes for 34 yards, and Caleb Marsh was limited to 1 reception for 20 yards. Demetrius Cox rushed for 57 yards on 22 carries.
Tabor is now 0-5 in conference play. Tabor's lone victory came against Oklahoma Panhandle State three weeks ago.
