MVC Football Finishes Spring Practices MondayPosted April 28, 2014
Marshall, Mo. (April 28, 2014)- The No. 7 Missouri Valley College football completed its spring practices with a spring game Monday evening at Gregg-Mitchell Field. The team was divided into offensive and defensive units for the game.
The defense came away with a 48-38 victory in a modified points system with roughly 80 plays during the game. Also, Quarterback Bruce Reyes (Beaumont, Texas) returned to the field for the first time since the Nov. 16 game at Avila University.
“I thought the guys played hard tonight and performed well,” said Head Football Coach Paul Troth. “Even with the hard play, we came out of the game healthy, and we saw some good things to work heading into the offseason.” “Tonight will help give us momentum into the summer, and a look forward to the preseason where we should have some good position battles on both sides of the ball.”
The Viking football program will head into the summer, and look forward to its season opener which is scheduled for Sept. 13, at home against No. 8 Tabor (Kan.) College at 6 p.m., for Family Weekend.
