Resilient Hounds Rally to Reclaim Wagon Wheel

Facing a 28-7 deficit late in the first half, the Eastern New Mexico football team reached into its bag of tricks with a 41-yard flea flicker pass to Aaron Johnson. The play set up a touchdown, which allowed ENMU to enter halftime of Saturday night's Wagon Wheel Game against West Texas A&M down just 28-14. Eastern exploded for 25 second half points to earn a 39-30 win over the Buffaloes in Lone Star Conference action at Al Whitehead Field at Greyhound Stadium.

After ENMU (3-2; LSC 3-1)  stopped WT (3-2; LSC 2-1)  on a fourth-down try in the opening quarter, Kamal Cass went 38 yards on Eastern's first play from scrimmage to stake Eastern to a 7-0 lead. After the Buffaloes responded with a run from Devon Paye, Buffalo quarterback Ethan Brinkley responded masterfully with three  touchdown drives, with tosses to Ja'Quarius Daniels, Junior Pomee, and Trent Canion to give WT the 28-7 lead. The flea flicker set up the Hounds touchdown before halftime.

The Hounds received the ball to open the second half and ran the ball on eight of the ensuing nine plays, with Gallagher scoring on a two-yard run. On the fifth play of WT's next drive, Caleb Ortiz forced a fumble which was recovered by Jordan Fuamatu at the Greyhound 42-yard line.
