Palm Oil and Azusa Pacific University

Post  sangbmt on Mon Jan 10, 2011 10:38 am

When I read the heartwarming story published by the Los Angeles Times on a 2008 football match between Azusa Pacific University and Westmont College, it was about far more than winning the game. 3 days earlier a wildfire had swept through the Westmont campus, destroying several academic buildings, faculty homes and student rooms. Unable to host the game, the rules require that Westmont to forfeit. Instead, Azusa Pacific invited their opponents to play at their campus where they welcomed Westmont fans with free admission and lunch.

On the field Westmont won an emotional 2 to nothing victory, while Azusa Pacific won admiration for their good will! LA Times reporter, Bill Plaschke wrote: "Rarely in Southern California sports has there been a better show of sportsmanship than this, Azusa Pacific sacrificing its chance at a title defense to give Westmont a fair shot of taking it!"
