KCAC

Bethany 24, No. 7 Tabor 17 — Bethany pulled off the biggest KCAC upset of the season in Hillsboro, coming in with an 0-6 record in KCAC play and leaving with a win over a Top 10 opponent and putting a huge dent in Tabor’s KCAC title and NAIA playoff hopes.

The Swedes trailed 17-0 in the third quarter before mounting a furious rally led by quarterback Zach Dovenbarger, who ran for a 5-yard touchdown then connected with Rodney Molette and Kelton Evans for fourth-quarter touchdown passes. Tabor, which entered in a four-way tie for first place, is now 7-2 and 5-2 in KCAC play.
