NATCHITOCHES, La. (AP) — Zachary Clement threw three touchdown passes and ran for a fourth as Northwestern State scored 28 straight points to earn a 35-27 win over Lamar on Saturday in a game that featured two teams in search of their first win.

Nick Yockey threw eight yards to Jalen Dummett and Chris Esqueda kicked a 33-yard field goal to give Lamar a 10-0 win after one quarter.

Clement started the Demons’ comeback by hitting Javon Antonio with back-to-back touchdowns to take the lead, 14-10. Clement ran 35 yards for a touchdown to make it 21-10 at intermission. Clements hooked up with Scooter Adams on an 80-yard touchdown bomb early in the third quarter. Esqueda snapped the Northwestern State run by booting a 25-yard field goal for Lamar, but Kennieth Lacy ran 55 yards for a touchdown on the final play of the third quarter to give the Demons (1-3, 1-0 Southland Conference) a 35-13 lead.

Yockey capped a seven-play, 75-yard Lamar drive by hitting Kyndon Fuselier from eight yards out to make it 35-20. Major Bowden caught a 16-yard touchdown pass from Mike Chandler with 1:52 left to get the Cardinals (0-4, 0-1) within eight but the Demons recovered the ensuing on-side kick.
