Belton, Texas – The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor football team started slowly but controlled the final three quarters as the fourth-ranked Cru rolled to a 43-10 victory over Wisconsin-La Crosse Saturday night in Belton. UMHB improves to 3-0 on the season with its 57th consecutive regular season win. The loss drops the Eagles to 1-2 on the season.

UMHB forced a three and out on the opening possession and took a 3-0 lead on Jacob O’Neill’s 27-yard field goal.

UMHB had a 13-yard touchdown run from Malcolm Miller wiped out by a penalty on the next drive and O’Neill missed a field goal to leave it 3-3 going into the second quarter. Blake Jackson’s 16-yard scoring run gave the Cru a 10-3 lead and Duane Thompson raced 31 yards for another score to push it to 17-3. Michael Carpenter added a two-yard touchdown plunge on the next possession and O’Neill connected on a 46-yard field goal to make it 27-3 UMHB at halftime.

Zach Anderson scored on a three-yard run on the opening possession of the second half and Miller added a two-yard scoring run as the Cru stretched the lead to 40-3. John Tackett hit Joel Oxton for an acrobatic catch in the end zone as the Eagles pulled to within 40-10 with 2:20 remaining in the third quarter. John Mowery would hit a 23-yard field goal for UMHB with 10:04 left to play for the only scoring of the fourth quarter to provide the final margin.

The Cru rolled up 586 yards of total offense in the game with 298 of those coming through the air. UMHB went 23-30 passing in the game. Wisconsin-La Crosse was held to 75 yards rushing and 223 yards of total offense with almost half of that production coming in the fourth quarter.
