SIU Wins MVFC Opener


By WSIL Sports

SPRINGFIELD-- It wasn't pretty, as the SIU offense managed just 198 total yards, but the Salukis defense carried the Dawgs to a 14-6 MVFC opening win over MIssouri State.

Emmanuel Sourain had a pick-six for SIU's first score, and the Salukis made it 14-0 less than ten minutes into the game, when Kory Faulkner found Mulku Kalokoh in the end zone for a twelve yard touchdown.

From there, the offense went quiet, 0-for-13 on third down conversions, as the defense hung on, allowing just two first-half field goals.

SIU improves to (2-2) on the season while Missouri State falls to (0-4).
