Tabor snaps six-game losing streak

Freshman Simon McKee led his team to a 20-7 victory at Bethel College today, earning their first conference win and snapping a six-game Bluejay losing streak.

Tabor put points on the board first when McKee connected with Duray Gardener with 12:17 left in the first quarter. Gardener dove into the end zone to put the Bluejays up, 7-0.

Bethel responded with a scoring drive of their own, putting points on the board with 5:17 remaining to tie the game.

With 2:21 left in the first quarter McKee pitched to Mickey Polley who ran to about the Bethel 20 before fumbling the ball. But Gardener was there to fall on the ball on about the four yard line to set up a Tabor touchdown, 14-0.

With 13:47 James Monroe broke free at the two yard line and made an electrifying run all the way down field for a Tabor touchdown. The extra point was wide, for what would turn out to be the final score of 20-7.

Although the Bluejays would have several more opportunities in the red zone, they did not score again. In fact, the second half was as uneventful as the first half was exciting, since neither team scored in the second half.

The Bluejays will look to pick up their third win of the season in their home game next Saturday against Southwestern.
