SC Football wins KCAC Conference Title
November 18, 2013
The Sterling College Football team traveled to Salina, Kan. on Saturday to take on the Kansas Wesleyan University Coyotes in the final game of the historic 2013 season. The Coyotes got the best of the Warriors in the first half but Sterling would break free in the second half and score 29 unanswered points to win it first KCAC football title in school history with a final score of 36-19.
The first half looked very bleak for the Warriors, Sterling was not able to get into an offensive rhythm and were down 7-0 before a Reggie Langford to Antonio Bray 36 yard touchdown pass to tie the game. On the next offensive possession, the Warriors were forced to punt and a bad snap caused the Coyotes to convert a safety for a 9-7 score just before Kansas Wesleyan would score twice on a rushing touchdown and a field goal to end the half with a score of 19-7.
Sterling came out in the second half with a determination in their eyes that couldn't be stopped. Marquis Miller started the scoring for the Warriors and brought the score to 19-14.
After a turnover cause by the Sterling defense, Langford would find Antonio Bray for a 71-yard touchdown pass for Bray's second touchdown of the game. Knowing that this was their opportunity to take a significant lead, the Warriors went for two and Langford found Miller in the corner for a 2-point conversion. This would bring Sterling's first lead of the night and would be 22-19 lead.
Cedrique Smith, Mar E Whitson, and TJ Dunks would all make the costly interceptions thrown by the Coyotes into points for Sterling. Marquis Miller would help capitalize on one turnover an
