SPRINGFIELD, Mo–The Evangel Crusaders will be at home Saturday afternoon when they host Clarke.
At least they hope to be.
Last week’s Evangel game was postponed after Graceland had a Covid outbreak.
And this weekend’s game against Clarke was supposed to be played September 12th but was moved to Saturday after covid exposure at Clarke.
The Lions are 1-2 while Evangel is 0-2 in this crazy 2020 fall season.
But Evangel coach Chuck Hepola is just happy to be playing a game Saturday.
“We are besides ourselves to be able to get out on the field this Saturday. It’s obviously been a frustrating year knowing that we’ve been able to only get two games in. The guys have been practicing very well. And we’re starting to get a majority of our team back. So we’re ready to get out and play a much improved Clarke team. We’re looking forward to playing at 1 o’clock at Ozark. And getting our guys out there and executing at a high level,” said Hepola.
