Beef Homestand Starts With Win Over Force

RALSTON, NE — The Omaha Beef offense put together its most complete performance of the season en route to a 58-55 victory over the Wichita Force (4-2).

The 58 points were a season-high for the Beef (3-3).

QB Joshua Floyd Jr. completed 15 of 24 passes for 237 yards and 5 touchdowns. WR Jeremiah Oates led the Beef with five receptions for 118 yards and a touchdown. WR Kayne Farquharson had four catches for 64 yards and 3 touchdowns. RB Jeff Mack led the team with 76 yards rushing and 2 touchdowns.

The Beef defense held the Force to zero total yards in the first quarter and zero points in the third quarter. In the third quarter, the Beef scored 21 unanswered points and took control of the game.

LB Jesse Robertson led the defense with 11 tackles and a sack. DT Sony Theodate had 8 tackles and 1.5 tackles for loss.

With 43 seconds left in the game, Farquharson sealed the victory with a 5-yard touchdown reception to make the score 58-41. Two garbage-time touchdown passes by the Force, one aided by a successful onside kick, made the final score look closer than the game actually was.
