Morningside will be on the road again this weekend when the Mustangs visit number two Sioux Falls in the quarterfinal round of the N-A-I-A playoffs. Morningside advanced after a 38-31 double overtime win at St. Ambrose.
Morningside coach Steve Ryan says he told his team that not many teams win on the road and to do so was truly a great time. After struggling in the opening half the Mustangs rallied with 21 points in the third quarter. Ryan says they made a couple of big catches in the third quarter to keep things going and once they scored, they believed they could win.
Morningside lost to Sioux Falls 24-0 during the regular season. Ryan says his team believes they can beat them and is excited to get the chance to try again.
