Down 28-zip at halftime, and despite 25 penalties totaling 232 yards, the Highlands U Cowboys beat the Eastern New Mexico Greyhounds, 43-36, in Portales. What a heckuva football game!
J. Proctor ran the winning 2-yard touchdown during sudden-death overtime, and a total 143 yards running. Cordell Nugent made 12 tackles, 2 sacks. Had the 'Pokes not made twice as many penalties as ENMU, the game would've been somewhat different.
HU's total offense was 460 yards; 306 rushing, 154 passing, with one forced fumble.
Congrats to the HU football team, head Coach Eric Young and his staff for a well-deserved opening-season WIN! Again, what an exciting game!
