Written by Andrew Ottoson Tuesday, 30 September 2008 17:13The Tabor College football team made its longest road trip of the year to face the one team on its schedule that the Bluejays defeated last year. But after a 300-plus mile drive, Oklahoma Panhandle State University thumped the visitors 31-15, making the drive home a long one.
But the Tabor defense played its best game of the season so far. The Bluejays held the Aggies to -11 rushing yards on 28 attempts and, including pass plays, limited Panhandle State a mere 4.4 yards-per-play average.
Led by linebacker Jarvis Major, the Bluejays forced three turnovers, recorded four sacks and notched seven tackles for loss. Major recorded four tackles in the Aggie backfield, twice having a hand in sacking Vinny Gay and blowing apart three run play...
Written by Hillsboro Free Press Tuesday, 30 September 2008 17:12The Tabor College women’s soccer team celebrated its first win in nearly two years with a 3-1 victory over Oklahoma Wesleyan Sept. 24 in Hillsboro.
The win snapped a 21-game losing streak for the Bluejays, and was deeply rewarding for senior squad members, including Kelly White, who was on the field when Tabor tasted victory against Friends almost two full years ago. The Bluejays defeated the Falcons 3-2 on Oct. 18, 2006 in Hillsboro.
Tabor got off to a fast start against Oklahoma Wesleyan, when junior Jessica Burden scored off a pass from sophomore Leigh Costello.
Burden’s goal was the only goal for Tabor in the first half.
Oklahoma Wesleyan tied the score at one early in the second half, but the Bluejays would not be denied...
