(WARRENSBURG, Mo.)- The Griffon football team had some good momentum going into Saturday afternoons contest against 20th ranked UCM on the road, as Missouri Western beat number five ranked Fort Hays State last Thursday at Spratt Stadium 23-13.

What made this game a little more interesting is that UCM lost to Fort Hays State week one 20-16, along with a new quarterback taking snaps as UCM's starter is out with an injury. 

The Mules would score 21 points in the first quarter and never look back. The score was 27-7 going into half time.

Running back Derek Gray caught a five yard touchdown pass from quaterback Dom Marino early in the third quarter, but that would be the only scoring for the Griffons for the rest of the game. 

"We got out there and didn't perform like we should've, so I'm very dissapointed, but obviously moving on to the next week, not going to sit back and worry about this one, we're going to make the corrections and build our kids up, Griffon head football coach Matt Williamson said."  

Missouri Western will be at home next Saturday to play Northeastern State. Kick off is set for 7:00 p.m.

We have had rain off and on this Saturday across northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri. Scattered showers will continue off and on through the evening and overnight hours but should start to clear up as we head towards the morning. Temperatures will slowly start to warm Sunday into Monday as sunshine returns and conditions start to dry out. Another cold front is headed our way Monday night and that will bring us a chance for rain and possibly some snow into Tuesday morning as the colder air surges into our area. Temperatures look to stay unseasonably cool through the rest of the next week.
