Saints Prepare for Defensive Minded Missouri Valley Team

Posted: Updated:

Helena, MT - The Carroll College football team is 11-1 in the NAIA quarterfinals. If the Saints are going to improve to 12-1, they are going to have to topple a very defensive minded Missouri Valley team.

The 9-2 Vikings are ranked first in the nation in total and scoring defense, while the Saints are ranked third in scoring defense. This will be the first ever meeting between the two programs, and Mike Van Diest's squad is expecting a very tough test.

"They're a great team. They're number one in the nation in almost every defensive category. They were in the final four last year as semi-finalists. They're good at knocking the door in and they're probably going to be a team that's the most physical team we'll play this year," Van Diest says.

"I think we just need to stick to our game plan, try to develop the run and just do what we do. I think our defense has always played great. So I think it's a big week for our offense to prove what we're made of," says Saints Senior Quarterback Dakota Stonehouse.

Kickoff is set for Saturday 12:07 p.m. Tickets are still available. They range from 12-18 dollars for adults. Kids 16 and under can get hillside seats for $5.
