Griffons get here late
Perhaps someone should have told Missouri Western that Muskogee Avenue would be tough to navigate on Saturday morning.
The Griffons arrived in town only to find out that parades — by both the United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians in Oklahoma and Northeastern State University — were blocking the main thoroughfare through town.
“We were late by 45 minutes to 50 minutes,” Partridge said. “We got cut off by the homecoming parade, and we were moving around all over the place and couldn’t get here.”
Jones picks off 2
Northeastern State cornerback Vernon Jones added to his team-leading interception total against Missouri Western. The 5-foot-11 junior picked off Missouri Western quarterback Travis Partridge twice.
“His coverage was good,” Evans said. “He challenged the receivers, and he stepped up and made some plays.”
