SWOSU Football Falls to 1-2 in High Scoring Affair

The SWOSU football team matched up against Southeastern Oklahoma State University last Saturday, in which they lost 58-48. SWOSU’s 48-point game sets a season high for the offense, but they could not slow down Southeastern’s rhythm.

The game started close, but a hectic second quarter saw Southeastern extend their lead to 44-27 by halftime.

Southeastern’s Daulton Hatley picked up 423 of the team’s 590 yards, doing so in the air. He completed 26 of his 45 passes for five touchdowns and one interception, which was picked off by SWOSU’s Ashton Hamby.

Tylan Morton, SWOSU’s quarterback, threw for 288 yards on 18-for-37 passing. Morton, like Hatley, threw for five touchdowns, while adding three interceptions.

As a team, Southeastern ran for 167 yards to pile onto their big offensive game, which left Southeastern with 590 total offensive yards.

SWOSU also had a solid run game, rushing for 138 yards, with their lead rusher being Troy Henderson, as he picked up 89 yards on 12 attempts. 

Richard Silva and Carter Norrie each picked up a sack for SWOSU, while Deshon Moreaux took his two receptions for 101 yards and a touchdown.

With this loss, the Bulldogs moved to 1-2 for the season. The team will play their next game on Saturday, Sept. 24, in Shawnee against Oklahoma Baptist University.
