After a tough loss in Searcy, Henderson State returned home and dominated the Northwestern Oklahoma State University Rangers. 

The Reddies got the ball first and jumped out in front early. HSU shut down the Rangers early, allowing just two first downs, both in the late first quarter. After only just a minute and twenty seconds for 53 yards and four plays, L’liott Curry scored the sixth touchdown of his career to put the Reddies up 10-0.

However,  at the beginning of the second quarter, the Rangers slipped out of the hands of the Reddies defense for a 53 yard run into the endzone, to make the score 10-7.

This would be the only scoring drive for NWOSU. 

Henderson quickly answered, holding the ball for almost five minutes for a 67-yard drive. At the 1-yard line, Logan Moragne took a direct snap and rushed in for a touchdown 

The Reddies turned the ball over but then a Defensive Back Dedric O’Bryant jumped a route and picked the ball off for Henderson  States’ first interception of the season with only 51 seconds left in the first half of the game. 

Coming out of half the Reddies picked up where they left off. They drove the ball down the field in just six plays to make the score 20-7. 

Henderson went on to win 47-7 in what turned out to be a pretty good game for their defense. 

“I thought our entire defense played really good we got 4 or 5 turnovers, had a defensive touchdown and I though Braden Boykin had a great punt return, Darius Austin, Logan Moragne and Curry had over 100 yards receiving so overall a great performance,” said Head Coach Scott Maxfield 

Moragne finished the game with a season-best of three touchdowns and 64 rushing yards, Curry finished 123 receiving yards and one touchdown. Austin finishing with 67 rushing yards and one touchdown. 

Henderson States’ 4-1 start is their best record to open a season since 2016 when they began 5-0. 

They are currently in second place in the GAC and will look to keep up this pace when they take on Southwestern Oklahoma State in Weatherford, Oklahoma. HSU at 3 pm on October 12.
