Tabor drops McPherson 57-26 in season finale

Tabor got on the board early and often Saturday at McPherson College to finish their season at 5-5 with a 57-26 win over the Bulldogs.

Tyler Marsh took a David Hernandez pass thirty yards at the 13:22 mark of the first quarter that would later set up a Hernandez touchdown run.

On the PAT, Tabor’s Dylan Pohlman picked up a boched hold and eluded several McPherson defenders before diving into the endzone for the 2-point conversion.

In the second quarter, Pohlman was tackled on an attempted punt. McPherson threatened to score inside Tabor’s 10-yard line when Jason Phelps jumped in front of a Mac defender and took the unintended pass 99 yards for the touchdown. Pohlman added the PAT and the Bluejays went on top 15-0.

On Tabor’s next offensive possession, Stephen Seaman took off, running 30-yards for a Bluejay touchdown. Pohlman added the PAT and Jays led 22-0.

After the TC defense stopped McPherson short of the first down late in the second quarter, Marsh caught a Hernandez pass and juked his way down to the two-yard line. Ryan Martin busted through the Bulldog defense for the touchdown on the next play. Pohlman connected on the extra-point and the Bluejays took a 29-0 led.

Again the defense stopped McPherson on their next possession, and the Bluejays capatilized on the opportunity with a wide receiver to the quarterback pass from Marsh to Hernandez for a 47-yard TD. Pohlman nailed the PAT and Bluejays took a 36-0 led into the lockerroom.

In the second half McPherson would tack on four touchdowns, but it wasn’t enough as the Bluejays added 21 points in the second half to preserve the win.

The Bluejays end their season with a 4-5 record in the KCAC and an overall record of 5-5.
