GRR DIAA Hot 100 Fall 2019: Tight Five
Isaiah Poku scored two tries in the first half to help lead #6 Arkansas State University past DIAA contender Lindenwood-Belleville 41-12 Saturday.
Both teams got off to a slow start before Poku, a 6-0, 195-pound sophomore flanker from Daytona Beach, Fla., sprinted down the sideline for the score 16 minutes in. Shortly after, Poku extended A-State’s lead with another try.
Lindenwood-Belleville avenged an earlier loss to Iowa Central Community College, beating the Tritons Wednesday 33-16 and making something of a statement, or two.
The teams changed ends almost tied, with the Lynx leading the Tritons 18-16. Then Belleville shut out Iowa CCC 15-0 in the second half to pull away.
Lindenwood-Belleville added another victory to what is likely the program's final season with a fairly comprehensive 39-7 victory over Arkansas.
