**For Immediate Release**
Adams State Defeats Aggies, 43-0
- by Scott Puryear of Aggie Sports on 10/23/05

Goodwell, OK - On the final leg of a four consecutive road game trip, the Oklahoma Panhandle State football team traveled to Alamosa, Colorado to face Adams State. Adams State jumped out to a 24-0 halftime lead on the way to a 43-0 victory on Saturday.

At an elevation of 7,500 feet, teams that visit Adams State need to have a good deal of air in their lungs and gas in their tanks and the Aggies worked very hard against the Grizzlies. Adams State is now 5-4 on the year and all of their victories have come on their home field.

The Aggies did not have the advantage of good field position for most of Saturday’s contest and a good deal of that had to do with Adams State’s punter, Jeff Williams. OPSU fans may well remember Williams’ booming kicks last year in Goodwell and he was up to his old tricks again on Saturday, averaging 61.5 yards on four punts and pinning the Aggies deep in their own territory three times.

OPSU’s junior running back, David Daniels, fought his way for 86 yards in 17 tries to lead the Aggies, and teammate Shane Black nabbed three passes for 20 yards. On defense, Jeborric Evans (All-America last season) was in on a dozen tackles and had a dandy 56-yard return of a kick-off.

Talented Aggie linebacker Clifford Dean was also in on 12 tackles (two of them for losses). Hershel Alfred was in on 11 stops, including a quarterback sack. Rugged middle linebacker Ranoaldo Davis, busy in pass coverage most of the day, managed to pick one off and return it 21 yards. Orlando Vargas also grabbed an interception for OPSU (now 1-8).

Next Saturday, and for the first time in a month, the Aggies will be back in Goodwell at Carl Wooten Field. It will be the third annual Panhandle Pork Bowl, and this year’s foe will be Western New Mexico. There will be plenty of fun and excitement, and kick-off is slated for 1:00 p.m.
