Fall sports begin with a battle of NAIA powers

Tabor College defensive back Jamirr Holland (left photo) puts the hit on a Morningside College receiver during the Bluejays’ season opener Saturday. Wide receiver Zach Jones (Bottom photo) picks up a 36-yard gain late in the second quarter. The rematch of the No. 4 ranked Mustangs and the No. 10 ranked Bluejays ended in the visitors’ favor by a score of 65-14 at Joel Wiens Stadium. Of note, Tabor College donated all of the gate receipts—about $3,000—to Hurricane Harvey recovery in Texas. Brent Barkman, owner of Barkman Honey, promised to match that donation dollar for dollar.
