Bison Mistakes, Turnovers Help Pirates Earn blowout.(SPORTS)


Byline: Michael T. Lyle Jr., SPECIAL TO THE WASHINGTON TIMES

HAMPTON, Va. - With authority, the Hampton University Pirates showed the Howard Bison who the real HU is.

Behind the rushing of Rian Thompson (116 yards and three touchdowns) and passing of Timothy Frazier (118 yards) the Pirates dealt Howard a 51-2 beating last night in front of 19,021 at Hampton's Armstrong Stadium.

Hampton has won the last six games in the series.

"We had a lot of mistakes in the first half," said Howard coach Ray Petty, whose team committed four turnovers. "We were just not focused at all in the first half."

Things started well for Howard - the Bison took possession to start the contest and an efficient passing game by senior quarterback Donald Clark moved the Bison within striking distance early in the first quarter. But the Bison couldn't handle the snap on a field goal attempt inside the Hampton 20, allowing the Pirates to recover at their 25 with 11:25 left in the quarter.

From that point, Howard fell apart.

The Pirates capitalized on the Howard turnover, as they drove 72 yards before Thompson's 1-yard run gave the Pirates an early 7-0 lead with 8:40 left in the period.

After Travis Oliver intercepted a Clark pass, Jerome Mathis increased Hampton's lead to 14-0 with a 14-yard TD run at the 2:56 mark.

Later in the period, the Pirates recorded a safety after punter Vaughn Waters bobbled a Tralan Andrews snap in the end zone.
