Every point mattered Saturday as host Western State edged New Mexico Highlands 21-19 in a meeting of two winless Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference football teams in Gunnison, Colo.
The Cowboys had drawn within two on a Jordan Mendoza-to-Kevon Williams 13-yard touchdown with 43 seconds left. But Wallace Lebrane fumbled on the ensuing 2-point conversion attempt.
Earlier, the Mountaineers blocked a Luis Marin extra point kick that would have tied the game late in the third quarter.
