Six turnovers sink Valparaiso
FB: Appel Jr. nearly completes spirited comeback despite five interceptions
MARION - Mikey Appel Jr. took everything that Indiana Wesleyan threw at him on Saturday night and the Wildcats took plenty that he threw at them as well.
As the interceptions and miscues piled up at Wildcat Stadium on Saturday, Valparaiso’s sophomore quarterback wasn’t going to quit.
Shaking off a career-worst five interceptions, Appel stayed in the fight and led a spirited final drive that ended one play short as the Beacons fell 24-22 to Indiana Wesleyan in the latest installment of what is turning into a fierce rivalry.
