Cowboys Get An Ugly Win

It wasn’t pretty, but the McNeese Cowboys defeated the Houston Baptist Huskies 27-12 Saturday evening in Cowboy Stadium. The Pokes turned the ball over 4 times, losing 2 fumbles inside the HBU 5 yard line and had 2 interceptions, 1 returned for a touchdown. Plus the Huskies scored on a safety in the 4th quarter. But thanks to 4 HBU turnovers, and a great effort by the defense, the Cowboys got the victory to move their record to 3-1 and 1-1 in the SLC.

The Cowboys got the scoring started on a 40 yard Gunner Raborn field goal in the first quarter. HBU answered with a FG to tie the score at 3. On the next play from scrimmage, James Tabary’s pass was picked off and returned 21 yards for a touchdown by Rapheal Lewis to put the Huskies up 10-3. The Cowboys added another Raborn FG in the 2nd quarter to make the score 10-6 at the half.

In the 3rd, Kent Shelby hauled in a 14 yard TD pass from Tabary to put the Pokes up for good at 13-10. Darious Crawley caught a 6 yard TD pass early in the 4th to give McNeese at 20-10 lead. The safety came with 4 minutes left. The Cowboys intercepted a pass on the next play and David Hamm iced the game with a 1 yard run with 36 seconds left.

Tabary finished 17-30 for 184 yards 2 TDs and 2 INT. David Hamm rushed for 76 yards and Kent Shelby caught 4 passes to move his streak to 28 straight games with a pass reception. The Cowboy defense came up with 3 interceptions and held HBU to just 132 yards of total offense and 3 points.

The Cowboys head to the Piney Woods next Saturday for a game with the Stephen F Austin Lumberjacks.
