Morningside will make a sixth consecutive appearance in the N-A-I-A playoffs this weekend when the Mustangs host Missouri Valley. Morningside finished the regular season with a 9-1 record and is seventh in the latest N-A-I-A top 25.
Morningside coach Steve Ryan says they set goals at the start of the season and one is always to make the playoffs. He says the Mustangs’ ground game will be tested in this game as Missouri Valley does a good job of stopping the run.
The Mustangs committed six turnovers in a loss to top ranked Sioux Falls to close out the regular season. Ryan says they need to limit their mistakes. He says they have to make good decisions with the football as the turnovers hurt them last week.
Missouri Valley is 8-2.
