Redhawks can't tame Tigers, fall 40-16

(KFVS) - (Nashville)- The Southeast Missouri State Redhawks managed just 223 total yards of offense and fell 40-16 at Tennessee State Saturday night. SEMO falls to 0-5 with the loss and 0-2 in Ohio Valley Conference play.

The Redhawks took a 3-0 lead on a Ryan McCrum 38-yard field goal in the first quarter. Tennessee State quickly answered with a touchdown before SEMO made a big play with its defense. 

Travis Sanders forced a fumble and Cantrell Andrews returned it 68 yards for a touchdown. The momentum swung back to the Tigers though as SEMO botched the extra point, and Antonio Harper returned it for a two-point conversion tying the score at 9-9.

The Tigers then scored the game's next 24 points until the 4th quarter when Lewis Washington took his only carry 99 yards for a touchdown for the Redhawks, the longest run in school history. 

The Southeast quarterbacks struggled as Kyle Snyder completed just 6-of-15 passes for 33 yards and two interceptions. Scott Lathrop completed 1-of-6 passes for 26 yards. 

The Redhawks will look for their first win of the season next Saturday at home vs. Murray State.
