WAXAHACHIE, Texas — Defending conference champion Arizona Christian spoiled Southwest Assemblies of God’s Homecoming with a thrilling 29-22 victory.

Quarterback Geerrit Groenwold completed 20 of 30 passes for 196 yards and two touchdowns, while Quinta Thomas rushed for 138 yards and a touchdown to lead the Firestorm. The Lions took a one-point lead at 22-21 with 9:26 left in the game before the Firestorm (3-2, 2-0) sealed the win with a late touchdown and a 2-point conversion.

Arizona Christian now stands atop the Central States Football League standings at 2-0 while SAGU dropped into a tie with Texas College at the bottom of the standings at 0-2.

SAGU gets a chance to climb out of the hole at Wayland Baptist next Saturday while Arizona Christians will play host to Texas College.
