Northwestern St. holds off Central Arkansas 31-28

Posted: Updated:
NATCHITOCHES, La. -

Zach Adkins threw three touchdown passes and ran for a fourth as Northwestern State hung on to beat Central Arkansas 31-28 Saturday night.

The Demons (4-5, 1-3 Southland Conference) led 14-3 early in the second as Adkins threw a 25-yard touchdown to Shakeir Ryan and connected with Tuff McClain for a 33-yard strike.

Two rushing touchdowns by Willie Matthews gave the Bears (5-4, 2-2) the lead in the third quarter.

Adkins would respond quickly, hitting Daniel Taylor for a 38-yard score. He ran one in from six yards out midway through the fourth quarter to increase the Demons lead 31-20.

Central Arkansas eyed a late rally with Ryan Howard throwing a two-yard touchdown to Courtney Whitehead. The Bears converted the two-point conversion to pull within 3, but the ensuing onside kick was recovered by Northwestern State.

Adkins finished 18-of-26 for 226 yards and added 48 on the ground.
