The ASU Rams football team on Oct. 12 won their homecoming game against Western New Mexico University Mustangs, 31-14.

With this victory, ASU increased their 4-1 record to 5-1.

In the first quarter, senior Payne Sul­lins contributed the team’s first touchdown of the game with a 1-yard run. After the ex­tra point from senior Connor Flanigan, the Rams took an early lead of 7-0.

WNMU would then score two touchdowns, one before the end of the first quarter and another within the first minute of the second quarter.

Then on a one-play drive, senior Lawson Ayo scored on a 68-yard pass from Sullins. Flanigan kicked for the conversion, which tied the game 14-14.

With less than a minute left in the second quarter, Flanigan punched in a 32-yard field goal, which put ASU in the lead at 17-14.

During halftime, the Ram Band performed “Respect” by Aretha Frank­lin and the homecoming queen and king were crowned.

Late in the third quarter, a 3-yard run from freshman Kaleb King gave the Rams another touchdown, and after a kick from Flanigan, the Rams increased their lead to 24-14.

The final touchdown of the night came at the end of the fourth quarter when sophomore Daven Manning scored on a 2-yard run. Flanigan’s extra point brought the score to 31-14, which ended the game in ASU’s favor.

“It feels great knowing that we were able to bounce back from a tough loss against Tarleton and continue to show people what the 2019 Rams are all about,” said freshman Trevor Flores.

ASU’s next home game will be against the University of Texas Permian Basin Fal­cons on Oct. 26.
