Evangel Hits The Road, Again

Evangel will take on Avila Saturday night.
SPRINGFIELD, Mo--The Evangel Crusaders will hit the road again Saturday as they open their 2013 season with back to back road games.

Evangel will play at 2-0 Avilia in a Heart of America Conference opener. 

Last week, Evangel fell behind early at Kansas Wesleyan and battled back twice before finally losing 38-28.

The Crusaders defense got a baptism of fire with a number of players starting for the first time.

Evangel coach Brenton Illum says they'll improve as the season goes along.

But that defense will be tested again in the Kansas City area.

Brenton Illum/Evangel Coach:"Well they scored 80 in their first game.  And 41 in week two.  So they have a potent offense.  And they're much improved.  They do a great job over there.  Their head coach has been there for three years.  He works extremely hard.  They have some good players, some good Southwest Missouri players..."

Chandler Eden/Evangel Linebacker:"We've been working hard all week.  We struggled a little bit in that first game just having a bunch of young guys.  Everybody from Saturday to Sunday has buckled down and realized what they needed to do.  And we've been fixing all week."
