Strong 1st half sends Stephen F. Austin to 40-26 victory over Lamar

Brady Attaway had two second-quarter touchdown passes and Jordan Wiggs added four field goals to lead Stephen F. Austin to a 40-26 win over Lamar on Saturday.

Backup quarterback Joe Minden added a third-quarter TD pass for the Lumberjacks (4-5, 3-2 Southland).

Ryan Mossakowski threw three TD passes in the second half — all to Jordan Edwards — who finished with six catches for 208 yards for the Cardinals (3-7, 0-5). Edwards became the second Lamar receiver with more than 200 yards receiving in a game. He had TD catches of 60, 39 and 56 yards.

The game was delayed nearly 2½ hours because of inclement weather.

Leading 7-6 after the first quarter, Stephen F. Austin took control with a 20-point second quarter.

Wiggs made a 33-yard field goal and Attaway had TD passes of 11 yards to DJ Ward and 12 yards to Kris Lott for a 27-6 halftime lead.
