ECSU football home opener doesn’t count plus Lady Viking volleyball

If you were at the ECSU football opener vs. Virginia University – Lynchburg, you were given a show. A complete thrashing by the Vikings in the 71-0 win. Unfortunately from the Vikings perspective, the game does not count.

Because the Dragons are on a list of non-countable opponents not only from the NCAA but also the NAIA, the statistics and the win for ECSU does not count. It is all a part of an effort by the NCAA to wipe these type of beat downs out if its record books.

So sophomore quarterback Daquan Neal’s 27-yard touchdown pass to Lovie Banks-Rose won’t go into the NCAA history books.

At least the players have the memories of the plays they had. Somewhat of a consolation, if that matters.
