SAN ANGELO–The definition of a greyhound is two-fold. "One of a breed of tall, slender, dog, noted for its keen sight and swiftness. Second, a swift ship, especially a fast ocean liner."

When you combine words such as keen sight, swiftness, fast, you get an idea on what the Eastern New Mexico Greyhounds were able to do, letting the dogs loose in a 46-28 win against the Rams.   
ASU entered the game with a 2-2 Lone Star Conference record; Counting Saturday's game, the Rams have now suffered three losses in the four LSC games they've played.

The Greyhounds scored swiftly on their opening drive to make it 7-0. Angelo State University came back with their own scoring drive in four plays, covering 75 yards to tie game, 7-7, in the first quarter. The score was a 35-yard touchdown pass thrown by wide receiver Brett Rashberry to his teammate, Anthony Pierson.

Eastern New Mexico then takes the ball at their 16-yard line and grinds out a score, going 84 yards in 17 plays with 46 seconds left in the first quarter; it's ENM 14, ASU 7.

Unfortunately for the Rams as has been all season long, a miscue. On their next drive at the 50, ASU fumbles; Greyhounds turn it into a score to make it, ENM 21, ASU 7.

On the very next Rams' possession, quarterback Kyle Washington throws an interception on first down; ENM scores quickly to go up 28-7.

After the Rams' defense stops Eastern New Mexico, the Rams get a touchdown and two-point conversion to cut the lead 28-15. ENM after four consecutive touchdown scoring drives, finally has to settle for a field goal to make it 31-15, ENM and that's how the half ends.

The Rams on their opening possession of the second half take the ball all the way down to the 3-yard line; however on 4th down-and-three, an in complete pass gives the ball back to the Greyhounds.

With ASU unable to score, ENM makes them pay as the keen and insightful, fast Greyhounds go 97 yards in 4 plays to make it 38-15. 

The Kyle Washington Rams' offense marches downfield, facing for the second time, a 4th down and three. Although ASU cuts the lead with that score to make it 38-22, the third quarter ends with ENM still in the lead.

The Rams offense gets a break as their defense comes up with an interception; however on a third and five, ASU can't pick up the first down. If ASU had scored and gotten their PAT, they would only be down by nine points with plenty of time left.

While the Greyhounds score another touchdown and two-point conversion to make it 46-22, there is still time left, 8:41 in the fourth for the Rams to make a comeback.
But, ASU's explosive offense is only able to score two touchdowns, one in the third; another in the fourth as Washington scores on a 1-yard TD with 6:28 left in the game to cut into the lead. However it's too little and too late with ENM winning, 46-28.

The Rams return home to close out the season on Halloween night, Oct. 31 against the Tarleton State Texans. Kick-off from LeGrand Stadium 1st Community Credit Union Field is scheduled for 7 p.m.
