FOOTBALL: Jackson, No. 14 MSU clip Cardinals, 34-7

Midwestern State's Keidrick Jackson rushed for 173 yards and two touchdowns to lead the 14th-ranked Mustangs to a 34-7 win over Incarnate Word Saturday night at Memorial Stadium.

MSU have now won three consecutive games to improve to 3-1 on the season while the Cardinals fell to 1-4.

The Mustangs chewed up 260 yards on the ground while halting six UIW drives in plus territory as the Cardinals struggled mightily to 4-of-17 on third downs and converted just one of eight fourth-down tries.

MSU wasn't much better going 1-for-9 on third downs, but used a 6.4 yards per play average to overcome the discrepancy.

Senior quarterback Brandon Kelsey, who connected on 11-of-20 passes for 163 yards, rolled 56 yards for a first quarter score.

Incarnate Word responded with a 4-yard TD reception from Zach Rhodes to Matt Bass to answer the score, but it would be all MSU from that point forward.

Greg Saladino connected on field goals from 47 and 30 yards out while Jackson tacked on TD rushes of 6 and 4 yards to give the Mustangs a 27-7 edge through three quarters.

Kelsey linked up with Joe Sanders on a 23-yard TD connection with 7:10 remaining in the fourth quarter to wrap up all scoring.

Junior defensive lineman Elijah Winston keyed the Mustangs defense with six tackles including four stops for a loss and three sacks while Vernon Brooks and Hunter Hale also accounted for sacks. The Mustangs intercepted a pass and recovered a fumble while notching 10 pass breakups and seven quarterback hurries.

UIW freshman running back Joseph Sadler rolled up 115 total yards inkling 68 on the ground while snagging four aerials for 47 yards to lead the Cardinals.

Midwestern State takes West Alabama Thursday night on the road in Livingston. Kickoff is set for 6:30 p.m.

VOLLEYBALL: TWU's Jablonska, Santos too much for Mustangs

TWU's dynamic duo of Viktorija Jablonska and Josie Santos combined for 23 kills as the Pioneers swept past Midwestern State 25-19, 25-19, 25-11 in Lone Star Conference play Saturday afternoon at D.L. Ligon Coliseum.

Texas Woman's rolled to its third straight win to improve to 13-3 on the season and to 7-1 in league play while sending the Mustangs to their third straight loss to fall to 3-12 and 1-6.

Santos slammed down a match-high 12 kills and added 11 digs while Jablonska had 11 kills and 10 set assists to key the Pioneers to a solid .300 team attack percentage.

The Mustangs were paced by junior middle blocker Caitlin Wallace, who notched eight kills and three total blocks while senior outside hitter Shelbi Stewart added six kills to go along with a team-high 11 digs.

Junior Courtney Haney and sophomore Kristan Aduddell notched 12 set assists each as the Mustangs struggled to a .155 team hitting percentage while managing just a pair of early leads in the first and second sets.

Macela Alves and Courtnee Davis added nine and eight kills each for the Pioneers who were led on the back row by Kayla Rivero's 15-dig effort.

Midwestern hits the road to take on Cameron Tuesday night in Lawton. First serve from Aggie Gym is set for 7 p.m.
