Assumption used a strong second quarter to defeat Bowie State 51-29 in the first round of the Division II playoffs last Saturday. The Greyhounds made their opening playoff game memorable as they used the same formula that helped propel them into the postseason. All three phases of the game excelled and that showed up in the final box score.
Special teams did their usual part in the game as they blocked a punt and set up the offense nicely in the return game.

Coming into the day I could’ve made a good case for all 3 NSIC teams to win their games, maybe even convincingly. However, for a variety of reasons things just didn’t go their way for the Northern Sun squads and the post tournament is over for the conference.
I’m going to revisit the day from my own perspective, as the NSIC Columnist.

The regular season concluded this past Saturday, and eight of the twelve MIAA teams are looking to see what they can build upon from this year into next year’s season. Four teams are still practicing, as two teams made the playoffs and the other two were selected for bowl games, which I will get to later. Here is how the final regular season games shook out:
Missouri Southern St. 21
Missouri Western St. 63
The earliest game of the season was also pretty much over
