Langston Kicks Off Season 2-0 With Win Over Lyon College

BATESVILLE, Ark. – A 27-point second half by the No. 22 Langston Lions paved the way for a 41-14 victory over the Scots of Lyon College on Saturday at Pioneer Stadium.

Knotted up at 14-14, the Lions defense broke the tie after Malik Argue (SR/New Orleans, La.) forced Lyon College’s Josh Sierra into a fumble which Charles Marshall (NA) recovered into the end zone pushing Langston in front 21-14 at the 9:39 mark.

On the following offensive possession for Langston, quarterback Jaylen Lowe (JR/Collinsville, Okla.) found Christopher Felder (FR/Orlando, Fla.) for a 24-yard touchdown to increase their lead to 28-14. The three-play, 38-yard drive took only 1:19 off the clock and gave Lowe and Felder their first touchdowns as Lions.

Langston continued their offensive surge in the fourth quarter when Lowe hit Charles Marshall for an eight-yard touchdown pass that capped a 14-play, 94-yard drive with 4:34 remaining.

The final nail in the coffin occurred when Scots quarterback Cody Jones was intercepted by Langston linebacker James Cox (SO/Hammond, La.) who raced 98 yards to pay dirt, giving Langston the 41-14 advantage following the extra point conversion.

Lowe finished 17-for-23 for 202 yards and two touchdowns and tallied 72 yards on 12 carries. Taj Johnson (SO/Aurora, Colo.) led Langston with eight carries for 43 yards and Glenn Irons (JR/New Orleans, La.) and Cedric Jackson (JR/Marrero, La.) were the leading receivers with six catches for 50 yards and three catches for 78 yards respectively.
