OSKALOOSA, IA. - Facing what many would call a must-win situation, No. 9 Saint Francis handed No. 5 William Penn its first loss on Saturday by a final of 28-19. Cougars senior Austin Coleman highlighted the day with a 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in the third quarter, tying a school record in the process. The score also tied a national mark, as Coleman now has seven kickoff returns for touchdowns in his career, an NAIA record.
Sophomore Antoin Campbell topped the century mark on the ground once again and opened the scoring with a first quarter touchdown. David Yoder who started at quarterback in place of the banged up Josh Miller completed 11-of-24 passes for 158 yards and a touchdown. Miller played sparingly and completed 3-of-6 passes for 31 yards and a score.
William Penn entered the game as the top rushing team in the nation at over 330 yards per game, but were limited by the USF defense to just 262 yards.
The Cougars return home next Saturday for their first ever meeting with Siena Heights. Kickoff from Bishop D'Arcy stadium is scheduled for noon.
