CINCINNATI, Ohio - The Southeast Missouri State football fell, 59-3, against Cincinnati from the Big East Conference on Thursday night at Nippert Stadium. The Redhawks were outgained 615-262 in total offense and committed six turnovers.

"I was proud of the fact that the guys hung in there and we did some good things," head coach Tony Samuel said. "We got to play a lot of players and found out some people who can play. The game got away from us in the third quarter but we were still able to see a lot of players."

Offensively, quarterback Victor Anderson rushed for a team-high 118 yards in his first game for the Redhawks since transferring from Mesa Community College. He also passed for 58 yards with eight completions in 16 attempts. Houston Lillard also saw a lot of time under center, completing 4-6 passes for 29 yards. Sterling Hardin added 27 yards on the ground on seven carries and Alfred Reese rushed five times for 24 yards.

Vincent Anderson led the squad with three receptions for 22 yards. Clint Jones, last year's receptions leader, finished with two catches for 11 yards.

On defense, Walter Peoples led the way with nine tackles while Kendall Magana made eight stops. Linebackers Adam Casper and Jared Goodson finished with seven tackles each. Magana also added an interception that was returned 45 yards in the second quarter. Casper forced a fumble that was recovered by Salim Powell. Matt Stahlberg registered the lone sack of the night for Southeast, good for a loss of nine yards.

The Redhawks return to action on Saturday, September 8 as they host Division II Southwest Baptist at 6 p.m. in the home opener at Houck Stadium. All fans in attendance will receive a free magnet schedule.
