MSU Mustangs Fall Short Of Comeback Against Tarelton St.

Tarleton State's Zach Henshaw rushed in from two yards out with 22 seconds left to lift the Texans to a 44-41 win over Midwestern State Saturday afternoon at Memorial Stadium.
 
TSU's last minute heroics dashed a brilliant 21-point comeback for the Mustangs as MSU closed the season at 6-4.
 
The Texans (5-5) cashed in on a fumble on MSU's first play from scrimmage and scored on an errant snap on a punt then Jabari Anderson scored on a 7-yard burst to give TSU a 21-0 lead with 10:41 to go in the opening half.
 
Midwestern State struck with an 8-yard touchdown run by junior wideout Levy Wilson before halftime then got the offense going after intermission.
 
Senior quarterback Jake Glover capped off a 10-play, 84-yard drive with a 1-yard TD run followed by a Joe Sanders' 2-point conversion effort to pull MSU to within 21-15 on the Mustangs' opening drive of the second half.
 
Freshman running back Adrian Seales gave the Mustangs' their first lead of the game at 22-21 on a 1-yard effort with 4:04 to go in the third quarter.
 
Seales notched his first collegiate 100-yard performance finishing with 115 yards on 10 carries as the Mustangs closed the season producing 100-yard performance in each of their last eight games and in nine of 10 games this season.
 
The Texans and Mustangs would exchange the lead six times in the second half.
 
TSU's Blake Barnes knocked in a 48-yard field goal as the Texans regained the lead 24-22 at the end of the third quarter.
 
But Midwestern had the answer with another 1-yard scoring run by Seales before Glover hit Sanders on another 2-point conversion for a 30-24 MSU lead.
 
Tarleton State's Zed Woerner connected with Bubba Tandy for a 50-yard TD strike on the Texans' next possession while Glover responded with a 2-yard scoring run followed by another 2-point conversion to give the Mustangs a 38-31 lead with 10:54 to play.
 
The Texans appeared to be in line to tie the game on the next possession, but missed a PAT following Anderson's second TD (9) of the game as TSU clawed back to within 38-37.
 
Midwestern extended the lead to 41-37 with a 38-yard field by Andy Alkhazshvilly with 6:02 to play.
 
The teams traded stops before Tarleton mounted a quick 6-play, 88-yard drive highlighted by a 41-yard connection from Woerner to Tandy on the way to the game winning score.
 
Glover completed 21-of-32 passes for 280 yards and rushed for two touchdowns to lead the Mustangs' offensive effort, while senior running back Chauncey Harris ran for 61 yards on 18 carries.
 
Woerner completed 20-of-33 passes for 316 yards to pace the Texans including six connections for 172 yards to Tandy. Henshaw paced the rushing effort with 81 yards on 23 totes while Anderson had 70 yards on 20 carries.
 
Junior safety Marqui Christian logged a game-high 16 tackles with an interception and two pass breakups to pace MSU defensive efforts.
