MONMOUTH, Oregon — The Western Oregon football team lost to No. 3 Angelo State 30-7 Saturday at McArthur Field, though a historical Wolves mark was surpassed as Omari Dixon-Land became the school’s all-time leading rusher.

The redshirt senior rushed for 94 yards against the Rams – giving him 3,236 career rushing yards, surpassing Bill Volk’s total of 3,172 set between 1992-95. Dixon-Land’s 583 rushing attempts is now second on the WOU all-time list while his touchdown Saturday gives him 24 in his career – tied for seventh in WOU history.

As for the game, the Wolves (1-4 overall, 0-3 LSC) fell behind 13-0 before answering early in the second quarter when Marquis Sampson returned a kickoff 62 yards to the Rams’ (5-0, 3-0) 37-yard line. Then on third and six from the ASU 19, Dixon-Land broke free to his left for a 19-yard touchdown run to cut the Rams’ lead to 13-7.

But that was the only score of the game for the Wolves as ASU’s defense tightened up and held WOU to 180 yards of offense compared to 437 for the Rams. ASU scored a touchdown later in the second quarter to make it 20-7, scored on an 82-yard touchdown pass from Zach Bronkhorst to Kason Philips in the third quarter and kicked a field goal in the fourth to make the final 30-7.
