Lyon College football: Scots fall to Aggies

Lyon College had tied the game in the first part of the fourth quarter, but a sustained 80-yard drive by Oklahoma Panhandle State resulted in a late score that provided the outcome in a 26-19 Sooner Athletic Conference loss for the Scots on Saturday night at Pioneer Stadium.

Lyon College’s (1-3, 0-2) scoring plays included a forced fumble picked up by Keidrick Wooten that was returned for 25 yards, a 34-yard field goal by freshmen placekicker and transfer from the Arkansas Razorbacks, Kevin Kargozar, a safety out of the end zone off a punt block by Brandon Johnson just before halftime, and running back Aedan Huntsman five-yard rushing touchdown to tie the game at 19-19 in the fourth quarter.

Offensively, the Scots were led by running back Emerson Price who rushed 19 times for 52 yards. Lyon College senior quarterback Isaiah Bradford had five completions for 85 yards. Three of Bradford’s passes were completed to Clifford Washington, who had three receptions for 62 yards.

Mason Davis led the Scots defense with 11 tackles, Christopher Bronson had 10, and Balah Muhammad contributed nine stops.

Oklahoma Panhandle State University came back in the first quarter to score on a 14-yard rushing touchdown to make the game 10-6 after the Scot’s Will Litton blocked the extra point.

In the second quarter, Oklahoma Panhandle State University responded at the 12:05 mark on a 59-yard touchdown pass to give the Aggies a 12-10 advantage.

Coming out of halftime, the Scots received the ball and ended the first drive with a 23-yard punt by Jacob Ramirez. In the third quarter, the Aggies added a touchdown on a 75-yard pass to go ahead 18-12 at the 10:27 mark. With eight seconds left in the quarter, the Scots found some momentum when Davis forced a fumble from the Aggies quarterback Brandon Stephens and Huntsman recovered the fumble to give the Scots the ball on the Panhandle State 13.

With 14:02 left in the game, Huntsman scored a touchdown on a five-yard rushing touchdown to tie the game at 18-18. After a successful extra point from Kargozar, the Scots tied the game 19-19.

The Aggies added a touchdown in the middle of the fourth quarter which ended up being the difference maker as the Scots fell to the Aggies 26-19.
