Waxahachie, Texas It was the same song, different verse for Haskell Indian Nations University's football team Saturday.
Penalties and turnovers proved fatal as Southwestern Assemblies of God U. pinned the Fightin' Indians, 24-7, at Lumpkin Stadium.
Haskell (1-7) threw four interceptions and was penalized 10 times for 87 yards, spoiling a solid defensive performance. HINU's offense manufactured only 183 yards, but that was 17 more than the Lions.
Haskell's only touchdown came when free safety Terrill Denny recovered a fumble in the SAGU end zone.
Haskell will travel to Peru, Neb., State on Saturday.
