Fourth-quarter scores help Hornets beat Blue Tigers
Sunday, October 23, 2011
The Emporia State Hornets scored three unanswered touchdowns in the fourth quarter Saturday afternoon to pull away to a 52-23 victory over the Lincoln Blue Tigers at Dwight T. Reed Stadium.
Lincoln had cut the deficit to 31-23 late in the third quarter on a 13-yard pass from Robert Redmond to Corderious Gregory.
But a 6-yard touchdown run by Tyler Eckenrode in the opening minute of the final period pushed Emporia State’s lead back to double digits.
