No. 12 Ouachita Tigers Hold off Savage Storm, Record 27-24 Road Victory

Box Score<>

DURANT, Okla.- Solid play by the defense and special teams late in the game proved to be the difference in the No. 12 Ouachita Tigers' (4-0, 2-0 GAC) victory over the Savage Storm of Southeastern Oklahoma State (1-3, 0-3 GAC). The Tigers overcame a number of injuries, including the fact that Ty Towers<>, who is listed as a wide receiver on the roster, was called upon to start at quarterback. The Tigers won the game by a final score of 27-24 after holding off a late drive from SOSU.

Towers finished the game with 13 completions for 187 yards and two touchdowns, as well as 11 carries for 103 yards on the ground. Chris Rycraw<> handled almost the entire load out of the backfield, recording 26 carries for 94 yards and four catches for 49 yards and a touchdown. Brett Reece<> recorded 63 yards and a touchdown on three receptions for the Tiger offense.

Jackson Guerra<> again led the Tiger defense, recording 11 tackles in the game. Ricky Brown<> finished the game with nine tackles and added two break ups and a quarterback hurry. Marquez Massey<> and Dion Young<> were able to register an assisted sack, marking just the fourth time this season that Southeastern has allowed a sack.

Ouachita stretches their win streak to four with the victory. The Tigers next match-up will come on next Saturday, October 6 at 1 p.m. when they host Southwestern Oklahoma State for Homecoming.
