Southwestern College was visited by Tabor on Saturday, October 8th for the annual homecoming game. The Builders’ five-year homecoming win streak came to an end as they come to a stunning loss of 14 Builders, and 42 Bluejays. Tabor made the first touch down with only 11:23 minuets left in the first quarter. They then added another touch down 5 minutes later to make the score 0-14. The Bluejays made another shocking score right after the first quarter to make the score 0-21. Donny Ebanks, sophomore wide receiver, made the first touchdown for the Builders in the second quarter of the game to make the score 7-21. The Bluejays scored two more touch downs in the third quarter of the game making the score 7-35. The Builders made their final touchdown early in the fourth quarter when Christian Gordon, sophomore quarterback, passed the ball to Ebanks once more to make the score 14-35. The final score of the game was made by the Tabor Bluejays with 3 minutes to spare making the final score of 14-35. You can catch the Builders’ next game at 1:30pm on October 15 against Bethany College in Lindsborg.
