Tabor rolls Kansas Wesleyan 21-6

Tabor College kept their perfect season alive Saturday night with a 21-6 win over Kansas Wesleyan in Salina.

The 21st ranked Bluejays combined a balanced offense with a stingy defense to improve to 4-0 for the season and 3-0 in KCAC play.

The Coyotes squandered two early scoring opportunities and settled for a pair of field goals of 47 and 24 yards to lead 6-0 after the first quarter.

Tabor took its first lead of the game with 10:08 to play in the half when quarterback Ricky Ishida pushed it in from 1 yard out giving Tabor a 7-6 lead.

The Bluejays added to their advantage with 3:19 to play in the half when Ishida found tight end John Garcia alone in the back of the end zone for a 16 yard touchdown pass moving the Tabor advantage to 14-6 at halftime.

Tabor stretched the lead to 21-6 in the third quarter when Ishida found Hillsboro native Layne Frick across the middle and the junior took it 50 yards to pay dirt.

Tabor’s defense held the Coyotes without a touchdown and just 242 total yards of offense while the Bluejays rolled up 22 first downs and 429 yards of offense.

Ishida finished the night 16-of-34 passing for 294 yards with Frick catching 8 passes for 141 yards.

Roger Butler led the Bluejays rushing game with 73 yards as Tabor had 135 total rushing yards.

Jake Schenk led the Bluejays smothering defense with 11 tackles.

Tabor returns home next Saturday afternoon for Homecoming as they host the Friends Falcons at 2:00 at Reimer Field.
