St. Ambrose is ranked tenth in N-A-I-A and will be on the road this weekend to take on fourth rated St. Francis of Indiana. The Fighting Bees enter the contest with a mark of 2-1.

St. Ambrose coach Mike Magistrelli says they’ve gotten better every week, and need to continues. He says the defense has a difficult chore against a St. Francis offense that is averaging more than 47 points per game as they’re balanced with a good running back that poses problems.

Magistrelli says the Fighting Bees will need to take advantage of their opportunities. They misfired on several redzone chances a year ago in a 21-7 loss to St. Francis.
