Saint Francis wins home opener

With a defense getting shredding in the first half and a starting quarterback out with concussion symptoms, Saint Francis was in trouble at halftime of their home football opener Saturday at Bishop D’Arcy Stadium.

But with some minor adjustments and a new quarterback in David Yoder, the Cougars rallied from what was an 11-point second-quarter deficit to defeat Wisconsin-Stevens Point, 39-31.

The Cougars (2-0) fell behind 24-13 with 3:14 remaining in the first half when the Pointers’ Ethan Lockhart rumbled 10 yards up the middle for a score. That followed a gift touchdown from the Cougars when Sean Alford’s snap sailed three feet over the head of punter Kollin Carman and was recovered by Wisconsin-Stevens Point in the end zone.

Saint Francis responded with a touchdown with 51.4 seconds left in the first half to come within 24-19 going into halftime.

Starting quarterback Josh Miller complained of dizziness at haltime, which enabled back-up quarterback David Yoder to start the second half.

The junior from Goshen responded by leading Saint Francis on three scoring drives, including a 1-yard touchdown run that put Saint Francis ahead 25-24 with1:25 left in the third quarter. He also completed 14 of 18 passes for 126 yards.

Running back Antoin Campbell had 123 yards rushing and a touchdown, and Kyle Mathewson had 62 yards and two fourth-quarter touchdowns.
