Oskaloosa, Iowa – A 38-yard field goal attempt by No. 11 ranked William Penn University (Iowa) with 14 seconds remaining sailed wide right as No. 9 Saint Xavier University hung on to capture a key 48-46 Mid-States Football Association (MSFA) Midwest League road victory Saturday afternoon at the Lacey Complex in Oskaloosa, Iowa. The Cougars (5-2 overall/1-1 MSFA) held a 14-point advantage, 48-34, following a touchdown reception by senior Nick DeBenedetti (Tinley Park, Ill./Andrew) with 10:29 to play, but two long touchdown passes by WPU junior quarterback Tyler Hafner brought the host Statesmen storming back in the final minutes and set up the thrilling ending. Both teams combined for nearly 1,200 yards (1,195) of total offense in the game.
