CSU Pueblo falls to Fort Lewis 35-24

Posted: Updated:

Fort Lewis College opened a 21-0 lead midway through in the second quarter and never looked back in a 35-24 upset of No. 12 Colorado State University-Pueblo in a Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference contest in Durango, Colorado.

The ThunderWolves fell to 5-2 overall and 5-1 in RMAC play, while the Skyhawks improved to 3-4 overall and in league play. CSU-Pueblo outscored Fort Lewis 17-7 in the second half, but a 28-7 halftime deficit proved to be too much.

The Pack entered the game scoring 40.3 points per game and allowing 16.5, while the Skyhawks came in scoring 16.3 and allowing 27.7. The scoring stats were nearly flipped in the contest, as the ThunderWolves offense was unable to ever get rolling until it was too late. The defense allowed uncharachteristic big plays, as FLC scored two touchdowns of 50 yards or more. The home team also recorded a pick six to help guide the 21-0 lead. 

In the end, CSU-Pueblo totaled 336 yards of offense, mostly in the fourth quarter, while Fort Lewis gathered 387 yards. 

Junior Brandon Payer (ILB, Pine, Colo.) finished with 13 tackles (10 solo) and a sack (-8 yards) to lead the ThunderWolves. Sophomore safety Tanner Draper (Amarillo, Texas) added nine tackles (eight solo), including two tackles for loss and a fourth quarter interception returned 55 yards that set up a score. 

The CSU-Pueblo run game, which was averaging 224.2 yards per game and ranked No. 18 nationally, totaled just 85 yards. The Skyhawks were able to produce 210 yards on the ground.

Quarterback Rex Dausin (Sr., San Antonio, Texas) struggled and threw for just 98 yards with a score. True freshman Gunnar Lamphere (Aurora, Colo.) came into the game in the fourth quarter and passed for 153 yards and totaled his first two career touchdown passes. 

Senior wide reciever Osha Washington (Stockton, Calif.) brought down eight receptions for 111 yards and a touchdown. The 100-yard game is the first of his two-year career with the Pack and the first by a member of the ThunderWolves this season.

The ThunderWolves will return home Oct. 21 to battle Black Hills State University. Game time is set for 2 p.m. at the Neta and Eddie DeRose ThunderBowl.
