MAJORS CAN'T SURVIVE THE WARRIORS

CONWAY, AR- The Millsaps Majors came out on the wrong end of a 13-7 conference game at the Hendrix Warriors this Saturday at Young-Wise Memorial Field. 

Hendrix score two quick goals on Saturday, notching two just 30 seconds apart two minutes into the contest. The Majors were not dismayed by the early deficit, scoring with just three seconds remaining in the quarter to make it a 2-1 game. Jack Houtz scored his first of three on the day off a Ryan McKay feed to tally a man-up goal. 

Houtz wasted no time in getting his second of the game, scoring just 17 seconds in to the second quarter to tie the game. The two schools would trade off the next six goals in what was a much more wide-open quarter. Kobie Baus, Hunter Stevison and McKay all scored for the Majors who went to the half tied with Hendrix at five. 

Houtz completed his hat trick and gave the Majors their first lead of the game in the third quarter. The Warriors answered with five unanswered goals in the third to take a 10-6 lead after 45 minutes. The rally started on the man advantage as the Warriors cashed in on a Ryan McKay interference penalty. 

The lead grew to 12-6 with two tallies by Hendrix in the early fourth. Scott Budd scored the Majors' second man-advantage goal midway through the fourth but it would not be enough. Hendrix added a short-handed goal to cap out the scoring and send the Majors to their fifth straight loss. 

Chris Hood made eight saves for the Majors in the loss, playing the whole 60 minutes. The Warriors had big edges in face-offs (18-24) and ground balls (35-17). Millsaps will look to regroup next weekend when Centre and Sewanee come to Harper Davis Field. The Colonels are up first on Friday night, with a 4pm face-off.
