A few Faith kids lacked football fundamentals. Others, such as Hunt, displayed some talent. He was applauded by SNU fans for a celebratory dance that followed a big stick on a Storm punt returner. Hunt also recovered a fumble that gave Faith its only possession of the game in Southern Nazarene territory.

Otherwise, Southern Nazarene dominated. The Crimson Storm totaled 296 yards to The Mighty Believers' minus-1.

SNU tailback Derick Perkins finished with 122 yards and four touchdowns.

This time last season, Southern Nazarene celebrated a Central States Football League championship and NAIA playoff berth. On Saturday, it finished a difficult schedule with a 2-9 record but a year closer to becoming a full-fledged member of the NCAA Division II-affiliated Great American Conference.

College of Faith wrapped up its abbreviated schedule with an 0-5 record but full of promise for the 2013 season.

“We've had a lot of hardships this season, but we're not going to give up,” Thomas said. “This is only the beginning.”
