After starting the season with a two-game winning streak, the Reddies looked to continue their momentum against the Arkansas Tech Wonder Boys. 

In the first quarter, eight seemed to be the magic number as the Reddies methodically drove the ball down the field capping off an eight-play, 80-yard drive with an eight-yard passing touchdown from Quarterback Richie Stammetti to Senior Wide Receiver Doug Johnson. This would be Johnson’s score of the season the only score in the first quarter. 

“It felt good, first off I want all thanks and honor to God because without him I wouldn’t be doing this and it felt good to get my first touchdown of the season, my family is here and I wanted to put a smile on there face and be a team player and make plays for the Reddies,” Johnson said.

The two teams began to trade blows in the second quarter. Henderson scored 10 points, highlighted by a touchdown from Senior Running back Querale Hall. Arkansas Tech would respond quickly, finishing a six-play, 65-yard drive in one minute and eighteen seconds with a touchdown to close the first half. 

Coming out of the half, Senior Running back Logan Moragne was a man among boys, breaking three tackles and running down the field for 75 yards on the first play from scrimmage. This was the longest run of his career. 

When asked what was on his mind during sprint Morgane said, “Run as fast as I can and don’t get caught.”

Late in the third, Tech capitalized on a Reddie fumble. They finished a 27-yard drive in eight plays with a touchdown. They were not finished however, after calling a timeout the Wonder boys converted for two points to bring the score to 21-24. 

HSU would finish the game relying on its defense. A sack from Redshirt Junior Antoine Roshell on Tech’s final drive of the game would help the Reddies close the game. 

Henderson would win 27-21 and move to 3-0 on the season. This is the first time that Henderson has been 3-0 to start the season since the 2016 season. 

Next week they will travel to Searcy, Arkansas take on #23 Harding in what will be the Reddies’ biggest test so far.
