Why would KCAC football be any different than the rest of the nation in a week where the nation’s top 25 teams took beatings at the hand of their underdog opponents. So be it with Saturday’s match-up where the #13 ranked Bethel College Threshers (2-0) took there first loss at the hands of the Warriors 24-3.
The Warriors dominated from the kickoff as the Threshers couldn’t break through the Warrior front seven as Bethel took a negative in the rushing column for the night with the 8 Warrior sacks having much to do with the totals. Derrick Sullivan put in another healthy week on the defensive side of the ball logging 9 tackles with 2.5 sacks. At the end of the night, the Threshers had to stare at a scoreboard that saw no touchdowns in their favor. “We did a good job of keeping a very good quarterback in Clow scrambling out of the pocket,” remarked Lambert on the defensive pressure.
Offensively, the Warriors could have definitely made the disparity in the score much greater as the 24 points were all scored in the first half, with two red zone appearances in the 2nd half, one on the one yard line resulting in no points. “It was a great win,” commented Lambert, “but a concern we had was the fact that we didn’t put the game away
