Evangel Upsets No. 10 Grand View


The Evangel defense notched back-to-back sacks as time expired to knock off No. 10 Grand View 28-20 Saturday at Tiger Stadium.

The Crusaders improved to 2-0, spoiling the season opener for the nationally-ranked visitors. The EU defense forced three turnovers and scored on a huge special teams play. After a blocked field goal, Evangel senior Jeno Bottinelli picked up the loose ball and returned it 80 yards for a fourth-quarter score.

EU will host another nationally-ranked opponent in a night game next Saturday, when No. 12 Benedictine invades Ozark for a 6 p.m. kickoff.
