Indians still searching for first win

Henderson stops Jacksonville, 40-20



The Tribe broke the scoring ice when McCown raced around the right side for a 54-yard touchdown that came with 11:27 to go in the first period.

The Tribe at that time held what turned out to be their only lead of the contest, 7-0, following Ryan Travis' PAT.

With just under six minutes to go in the first half McCown dialed up Claude Franklin for an electrifying 85-yard catch-and-run that pulled the Indians to within six, 20-14.

The Tribe's final points came on a defensive touchdown.

Forest Burton fell on top of a Lion fumble in the end zone with 5:29 to go in the game, which were the visitor's final points of the evening.

Jacksonville was threatening to score deep in Henderson territory late in the second quarter, but a botched trick play on fourth down run out of the wildcat formation with McCown lining up as a slot receiver resulted in an Indian fumble that was recovered by the Lions.

Timothy Boseman, a senior, came up with a fumble recovery for the Tribe

Henderson finished with 420 total yards to 361 by the Tribe.

Jacksonville closes out non-district play next Friday by visiting Marshall (1-3). Kick off is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.at Maverick Stadium.

    One of the main things I really look forward to in the summer is locating and catching schooling bass. Schooling bass are not always easy to catch. Sometimes they are very aggressive and will react to a variety of baits. At other times they become very hard to catch. I have several baits that I rely on, but some are favorites.
