ABILENE, Texas -- No. 4 Mary Hardin-Baylor used a dominant third-quarter performance to pull away from No. 25 Hardin-Simmons for a 35-17 victory Saturday afternoon.
The Cru improved to 3-0 overall and 2-0 in the American Southwest Conference, winning a 13th consecutive ASC game and beating the Cowboys (2-2, 0-2) for the 10th time in a row. UMHB held a 14-10 halftime lead before taking advantage of two HSU turnovers in the third quarter to take control.
Andy McAteer intercepted a Taylor Byrd pass and returned it 32 yards to the Cowboys' 8-yard line, setting up LiDarral Bailey's 6-yard touchdown pass to Tucker Glaske for a 21-10 lead with 6:39 left in the third. Darius Wilson's 23-yard TD run 5:34 later pushed it to 28-10, and the Cru converted Allen Dixon's interception of a Zach Stewart pass into Bailey's 28-yard scoring hook-up with Ervin Johnson to go up 35-10 with 29 seconds remaining in the quarter.
Bailey completed 16 of 20 passes for 201 yards and the two scores. Johnson finished with four receptions for 65 yards, and Damian Davis had six catches for 50 yards.
No. 2 Mount Union 66, Wilmington (Ohio) 7
ALLIANCE, Ohio -- No. 2 Mount Union rolled up 671 yards of total offense as the Purple Raiders posted a 66-7 Ohio Athletic Conference victory against Wilmington (Ohio) Saturday night at Mount Union Stadium.
The Raiders had 411 yards on the ground and 260 in the air as the 671 total yards were most in a regular season game since nearly four years to the day as Mount Union had 690 yards in a 62-0 home win against Muskingum (9/22/07).
Mount Union (3-0, 2-0 OAC) extended its regular season win streak to 56 games and home field winning streak to 52 games. Wilmington (0-3, 0-2 OAC) lost its 19th consecutive game dating back to the 2009 season.
No. 3 St. Thomas (Minn.) 48, Concordia-Moorhead 30
MOORHEAD, Minn. -- No. 3 St. Thomas (Minn.) used an explosive passing offense and a stingy run defense to defeat Concordia-Moorhead 48-30 and run its record to 4-0 (2-0 in the MIAC) Saturday.
The Tommies passed at will against the Cobbers. Senior quarterback Dakota Tracy completed only 11 of 18 passes but did so for 263 yards -- an average of 24 yards per catch -- and his shortest completion was for 10 yards. Two tosses were for touchdowns of 42 and 56 yards.
The run defense did its part, too. Rated No. 3 in Division III at 30.3 rushing yards allowed per game, St. Thomas shut down the Cobbers, holding them to 52 net yards in 26 rushes, well below their 268-yard average. Concordia had more success in the air, completing 26 passes for 329 yards.
