Weevils drop sixth straight contest with 16-0 loss to East Central


The University of Arkansas at Monticello travelled to Ada, Oklahoma on Saturday, November 5, to face Great American Conference opponent the East Central Tigers.

The Weevils would win the coin toss and would defer to the second half. 

The Weevils were able to end the first TIger drive after an interception by Greg Hooks gave the Weevils possession at the 20-yard line after intercepting the ball in the end zone for touchback.

Neither team could get anything going offensively as the score remained 0-0 at the end of the first quarter. 

Each team continued to end their drives with punts with UAM missing a 48-yard field goal attempt with 8:52 remaining in the half.

ECU would get on the board with 3:03 remaining in the half after a successful 38-yard field goal to give the Tigers a 3-0 lead. 

East Central would add a second field goal as time expired to end half from 35 yards out to take a 6-0 halftime lead. 

The Tigers added their third field goal of the contest, connecting on a 53-yard attempt to take a 9-0 lead with 10:50 remaining in the third quarter. 

East Central added the final score of the contest with 7:07 remaining in the contest after scoring a touchdown on a 15-yard run.

After adding the extra point, the Tigers led 16-0, the final score of the game. 

With the loss, UAM falls to 3-7 and drops their sixth consecutive contest. 

UAM will return to Convoy Leslie Cotton Bowl Stadium on Saturday, November 12 in the final contest of the season to take on Southern Arkansas University in the annual Battle of the Timberlands.
