Lamar trails 27-7 at half

Despite falling behind 7-0, Lamar tied the score in the first quarter after Andre Bevil connected with Marcus Jackson for an 8-yard touchdown pass and Lamar found itself tied with the Northwestern State Demons heading into the second quarter. But the Demons broke the game open in the second, thanks to poor tackling and costly penalties on third down as the Demons scored three times in the second quarter, including two rushing touchdowns and a 19-yard pass and catch on a third and goal from the 19 where Brad Henderson connected with Phillip Harvey, who bounced off two Lamar defenders before running in for the score. Lamar trails 27-7 at half, but they will get the ball back at halftime.
