Breaking sports: Rocky 34, Lights 23
Turnovers once again hurt the Montana State University-Northern football team in a home game. On Saturday afternoon, the Lights fell to visiting Rocky Mountain College 34-23 at Blue Pony Stadium.
Four MSU-N tunovers proved costly, as well as the Bears jumping out to a 20-0 halftime lead. The Lights' defense came up with some big plays as Northern rallied to score 17 unanswered points in the third quarter. But Rocky scored on two straight posessions in the first 1:12 of the fourth quarter to ice the game.
MSU-N junior Will Andrews returned an RMC interception 38 yards for a score and freshman quarterback Travis Dean threw a touchdown pass to Matt Stuart in the fourth quarter as the Lights fell to 1-3 in Frontier Conference play and 1-3 overall. MSU-N is home again next week as No. 3 Carroll College comes to town.
