Northwestern State 20, Arkansas-Monticello 3

NATCHITOCHES, La. (AP) -- Northwestern State tailback Byron Lawrence outgained Arkansas-Monticello by himself, running for 151 yards, while the Demons' dominant defense helped lift the team to a 20-3 win over the Division II Boll Weevils on Saturday night.

The Division I-AA Demons (2-2) won despite failing to score on five trips to the visitors' 15 yard line or closer, suffering two blocked field goals, another missed 3-pointer and an interception in the end zone before ending the game.

The Boll Weevils (1-4) were outgained 441-119, amassing only 50 yards on 37 plays after opening the game with an 11-play, 69-yard drive that produced their only points -- a 28-yard field goal by Ryan Guardia 3:39 into the contest. UAM netted just 10 yards in the second half.

Safety Russ Washington and cornerback C.L. Grogan topped Northwestern State's defense with five tackles each.

Northwestern State locked up the win with 7:19 remaining, building a 17-point advantage on an 12-yard Adam Varnado touchdown reception from Ricky Joe Meeks. The score capped a 63-yard, six-play drive that made it 20-3.
