The first loss of the season for the Arkansas Tech Wonder Boys came Saturday night in a 17-7 game against Great American Conference opponent Henderson State.
It was a tough game for senior quarterback Arsenio Favor. Despite achieving a season high in attempts, he only completed 19 passes, leaving him with a season low 48.7 percent completion rate.
Favor also threw two interceptions, one on the Wonder Boys opening drive of the second half, which led to a Henderson field goal, and the other on Tech’s first drive of the fourth quarter.
The Wonder Boys did not go down without a fight, as they put together a 78-yard drive that culminated in a 3-yard touchdown pass from Favor to Michael Fine, a senior from Springdale.
However, time was not on the side of the green and gold, and after a failed onside kick attempt, the deal was sealed.
It was not all bad for the Wonder Boys, as the defense continued to shine, allowing only 85 yards through the air.
Senior Logan Genz was able to provide nine tackles.
Freshman Cua’ Rose had an interception for the second straight game.
The Wonder Boys return home at 3 p.m. on Saturday for an important Homecoming matchup against Ouachita Baptist, who is 4-1 this season.
