CLEVELAND, Miss. (AP) -- Scott Eyster's only scoring pass of the
game, a 15-yard throw to Jeremy Ricks with 41 seconds remaining,
gave Delta State a 35-34 Gulf South Conference victory Saturday
over Ouachita Baptist.
Delta State's Montario James sealed the win by intercepting a
Taylor Carter pass in the end zone as the game clock ticked off the
OBU (2-6, 2-4 GSC) scored three TDs in the opening quarter and
led 21-16 at the half. Carter threw passes for all three scores, 36
and 33 yards to Bruce Steele and 35 to Julius Pruitt.
The Statesmen (5-4, 4-3) got a first-quarter touchdown from Chad
Ridley on a 2-yard run and added three field goals in the second
period by Bryan Walker, from 21, 42 and 26 yards.
Radale Pearson gave Delta State its first lead with a 2-yard
scoring run with 3:22 left in the third quarter. OBU responded with
a 59-yard scoring pass from running back Don Rich to Steele to go
back on top, 28-23.
Ricks ran for a TD early in the final quarter to give Delta
State the lead again, 29-28. OBU responded with Carter's fourth TD
pass of the day, to Curtis Clark from 7 yards out to retake the
lead 34-29 before Eyster's last-minute scoring pass.
Eyster finished 30-of-48 for 465 yards, but with three
interceptions. Carter ended the game 15-of-36 with two
interceptions, for 251 yards and four TDs.
