JOLIET, Ill. (AP) -Turnovers on three of the first four possessions of the second half helped St. Francis (Ill.) shut out Valparaiso 21-0 Thursday in the season opener for both schools.
In a game played in driving rain, the Fighting Saints finally scored at the 12:26 mark of the second quarter on a seven play, 70-yard ground drive. Javon Stewart, who carried six times on the drive, scored from 20 yards out to put St. Francis up 7-0.
Then, in the third quarter Donte Villery scored from three yards out. A bad snap on the conversion left Saint Francis on top 13-0 at the 8:26 mark. About four minutes later, Jason Fiske ran for a 10-yard touchdown, followed by a conversion to complete the scoring.
The Crusaders (0-1) managed just 24 yards of total offense in the second half.
