SAN ANGELO–It's not where you start, it's how you end. That is not only true about the outcome of Saturday's homecoming win played at LeGrand Stadium at 1st Community Credit Union Field, by the Rams over the Aggies, 31-9, but also when it comes to ASU's past two Lone Star Conference wins after losing its' first two.

 

In the first quarter and really the first half, Angelo State University and Oklahoma Panhandle State University played each other to a stalemate with no scoring in the first quarter. Then early in the second quarter, quarterback, Carson Cook, connects with Mark Munson on a 25-yard touchdown pass to take the 7-0, Rams.

The Aggies come back on their series when Sterling Claphan kicked a 42-yard field goal to cut the lead to 7-3 at 11:39 left before the half.

 

The Rams (3-3, 2-2 LSC) get a field goal from their kicker, Casey Eyman, who connects from 32 yards out to make it 10-3 ASU, and that ended up being the half-time score. 


 ASU crowned their homecoming king and queen at half-time.
Cole Strain was crowned king, while the crown of queen was placed on McKena Perinino.

In the third quarter, ASU puts up seven points on the board as Cook throws a short pass to receiver, Lawson Ayo for a 23-yard touchdown catch and run. ASU now leads 17-3. 

The Rams put away the Aggies in the fourth by scoring two additional touchdowns. The first one came by way of ASU's defense when Justin Jackson returns an interception back for 15 yards. With 12:49 left in the final quarter, it's ASU 24, OPSU 3.

Oklahoma Panhandle State finally scores a touchdown when quarterback, Shane Truelove, throws a six-yard touchdown pass to Eddie Thomas. The PAT was no good, and that's really the last time the Aggies score, to make it 24-9 in favor of ASU.

Rams' Josh Stevens scores on a 51-yard touchdown run and after the PAT is good, the final score is ASU 31, OPSU, 9.

After losing two straight LSC games, ASU now takes a two-game winning streak on the road to take on Midwestern State at 7 p.m. on Saturday October, 7 in Wichita Falls.
