Bluejays drop bombshell on Kansas Wesleyan

Football experts say you win games by playing good defense. To say that the Tabor College football team is playing good defense would be an understatement.

The Bluejays defeated the Kansas Wesleyan Coyotes 25-6 Saturday afternoon at Reimer Field in Hillsboro.

Tabor held the Coyotes scoreless until the fourth quarter. The Bluejay offense managed a touchdown and a field goal, but the real production came from the defense, who held KWU to just five yards rushing and scored 15 points off of turnovers. The Coyotes did manage to pass for 222 yards, but were held at bay until the fourth quarter.

The Bluejays led 19-6 with 1:09 remaining in the game, when Tabor’s Jeremy Loewen intercepted a Coyotes pass and took it in for a touchdown to seal the win.

Tracy Wehrman led the defense with eight tackles and two assists. Jason Phelps also had a huge game for Tabor snagging two interceptions and returning a fumble 25 yards for a touchdown.

“It’s where you finish, that’s all that matters,” coach Tim McCarty said after the game.

The Bluejays are 4-0 overall and sit atop the KCAC with a 3-0 record. This Saturday, the Bluejays will host Bethany College.
