Satur­day’s Re­sults

Mor­risville State Foot­ball

Vis­it­ing Mor­risville State Col­lege foot­ball with­stood a sec­ond half rally by host Utica Col­lege Satur­day af­ter­noon, as they closed out the sea­son with their sec­ond straight Em­pire 8 vic­tory be­hind a 37-35 de­feat of the Pioneers on their home field. The Mus­tangs wrap up the sea­son with a 4-6 over­all record, post­ing a 2-5 slate within con­fer­ence play. Mor­risville State jumped out to a 17-0 lead af­ter the open­ing half, be­fore Utica was able to get on the board and trade scores with the Mus­tangs through­out the third quar­ter, send­ing it into the fi­nal frame with a 31-21 vis­i­tor ad­van­tage. The Mus­tangs broad­ened the gap early in the fourth for the 37-21 lead, but two straight scores by the Pioneers made it a 37-35 ball game with just over four min­utes re­main­ing on the clock. With just three sec­onds to go, Utica lined up on the Mus­tangs 18 yard line for a 35 yard field goal at­tempt, but the ball hooked and sailed wide left of the up­right to give Mor­risville State the heart stop­ping vic­tory.
