HAMMOND, La. (AP) — Blake Smith returned an interception for a touchdown, Kayvon Britten ran for another score, and Tarleton State edged Southeastern Louisiana 14-13 on Saturday.
Smith intercepted a pass and returned it 23 yards for a touchdown three minutes into the game. After Bauer Sharp scored on a 19-yard run for the Lions, Britten put Tarleton State back ahead with a 15-yard touchdown run.
The explosive first quarter ended with the Texans leading 14-7.
There would be no more scoring until Zachary Clement hit Darius Lewis with a 9-yard touchdown pass with 5:17 left in the game.
The Lions missed a chance to tie the score and possibly pick up their first win of the season when Riley Callaghan’s PAT failed.
The Texans (4-1) won despite gaining just 203 yards on offense.
The Lions (0-5) had only 13 points to show for their 410 yards. They had three turnovers.
