ning a dive 4 yards getting them
some breathing room. On second
and seven the Yellowjackets
quarterback dropped back to go
deep down field, but his pass was
blocked by an excellent defensive
play by noseguard J.P. Rodriguez.
Two plays later Howard Payne
was forced to punt. Summers punt
traveled 29 yards to the 39 and the
Texaiis outstanding return man Bob-
by Sutton wove his way to the
Yellowjacket 33 with 21 seconds
left in the first quarter.
On first down, Kelvin Haynes,
seeing his first extended play in four
weeks, muscled his way 4 yards to
the Howard Payne 29 and ended the
first quarter with the score
Tarleton-0, Howard Payne-0.
Talley then completed two passes.
The first to Dana Holcornb for a
gain of 12, and then to Blake Bryant
for 13 yards down to the Howard
Payne 1. This time the Texans were
not going to be stopped by anyone
and Cason Rangel scored on a dive
left giving the Texans the lead.
Shawn Minor's point after gave
Tarleton a 7-0 lead.
Minor's kickoff was another high
one that was fair caught at the
H.P.U. 10 yard line. The Texan
defense again rose to the occasion
by crushing the Yellowjackets of-
fense forcing a punt on fourth and
21 from the Howard Payne 36.
The snap traveled over the
punters head and was downed at the
9 yard line by John Johnson. The
Texans struck quickly with a pitch
outside to Haynes who strolled in
easily and with the point after in-
creased the lead to 14-0.
The ensuing kickoff was return-
ed to the Howard Payne 29. The
Yellowjackets were not getting
anywhere on the ground but on third

where he was brought down at the

they held true. Danny Ward block-
ing two crucial passes that forced a
26 yard field goal that missed.
The Texans took over at the 20
and were on the move again when
Talley's pass was tipped by his
receiver and picked off by Howard
Payne's Brad Burdin.
Once again the Yellowjackets
tested the young Tarleton secondary
and on fourth and two at the Texan
12, Summers connected with Royal
Kyle for the touchdown. The extra
point was good and the score was
closed to 14-7.
The kickoff was caught at the
Tarleton 11 by Bobby Sutton who
came close to breaking a long gain.
Two incomplete passes by Talley
ran out the clock and at halftime the
Texans lead the Yellowjackets 14-7.
As expected, the Texans started
the second half quickly. Bobby Sut-
ton took the kickoff in the end zone
and returned it to the 28 yard line,
but the Texans were penalized 15
yards for clipping.
On first down the handoff went
to Haynes who rumbled 9 yards
before being stopped.
Two plays later Haynes received
the ball again and ran up the mid-
dle for 14 yards, giving the Texans
first and 10 at,their own 39. This
was only the beginning of a 17 play

pass to Dana Holcomb,.. ^

in the third quarter.

swarming Texan specialty team
dragged him down. The Yellow-
jackets ran the ball a couple of
downs only to be stopped by the
Texan defense. Along with the
defense, the Tarleton crowd
hindered the Yellowjackets by mak-
ing excessive noise.
After play began again Summers
connected with his receiver Brent
Hartsell for a gain of 22. The Tex-
an defense forced a fourth and 11
a few plays later and the Yellow-
jackets went for it. Summers once
again found the open receiver Royal
Kyle for the touchdown. Howard
Payne hung tough and with the ex-
tra point trailed 21-14.
The kickoff once agin was taken
in the end zone by Sutton who
returned it to the 23 where a fum-

unable to get a first down. The Tex-
ans took over at their own 21, and
succeeded in driving the ball to the
H.P.U. 37 before attempting a 54
yard field goal. The attempt by
Shawn Minor was tipped at the line
and fell a few yards short,
The Yellowjackets were unable to
make any gain on their next posses-
sion and turned the ball over to the
Texans at the Tarleton 39. The Tex-
ans, led by a run of 20 yards by
Haynes, kicked a field goal that ex-
tended the T.S.U. lead 24-14.
The Yellowjackets, down by 10,
needed points to close the gap the
Texans were widening. The
Tarleton defense rose to the occa-
sion and on fourth and 2 Troy Snow
