Football Ends October In First-Ever Meeting With Point University

Football Ends October In First-Ever Meeting With Point University

UPDATE: The scheduled kickoff on Saturday has been moved up to a noon start from a 1pm in Valley, Alabama.

 

The Apprentice School ventures south to Valley, Alabama for a 12 pm kickoff against Point University on Saturday.  This marks the second time in school history that the Builders have played a game in Alabama.  The last time was against Stillman College on October 7, 2000 when they lost 35-0 in Tuscaloosa.

This is the first-year that the Skyhawks have had varsity football and they've played a mixture of NCAA Division II, NCAA Division III and NAIA opponents thus far.  They appear to be turning the corner as in the month of October the average margin of defeat has been just over 10 points per game.  In comparison, the month of September they lost by an average of 47 points per game.

Point University is located in West Point, Georgia and was formerly known as Atlanta Christian College.  The school is located on the Georgia/Alabama border and they play their outdoor sports at the Valley Sportsplex.

The Builders will head north to start November as they travel to Dover, Delaware to face NCAA Division III fifth-ranked Wesley College on November 3 at 1 pm.
