Niceville, FL – For the second day in a row the Santa Fe Saints battled one of the top ranked teams in the country and hung around for a half before falling in the second period. The game was the sixth this season for SF against a top five team in the FCSAA poll.

SF (6-5) trailed Chipola College 38-30 after a defensive first half but couldn’t repeat the effort, getting outscored 43-27 over the final 20 minutes.

“We played hard in spurts,” said SF Coach Chanda Stebbins. “This is a tough stretch of our schedule but we know that playing the best is going to help us get better every game.”
