Saint Francis wins football opener

Turnovers kept Saint Francis from finding the end zone early in its season opener against first-year program Missouri Baptist.

But it didn’t last long as the NAIA No. 6 Cougars beat the Spartans 42-10 on Thursday at Bishop D’Arcy Stadium.

Saint Francis had two lost fumbles in the first quarter and didn’t get its first touchdown until three minutes were left in the period.

But the Cougars scored 28 points in the second to lead 35-3 at halftime.

Missouri Baptist (0-2) lost its season opener last week 77-0 against Southeast Missouri.

The Cougars were playing in their first-ever Thursday game.

It was also the beginning of a program first with 11 regular-season games.
