Mustangs fall to Northwest Missouri in overtime

For the second straight week, No. 10 Northwest Missouri State erased a double figure second half lead as the Bearcats stunned No. 2 Midwestern State 38-31 in overtime Saturday in the NCAA Division II Second Round at Memorial Stadium.

NWMSU moves on to face the winner of the PIttsburg State/Washburn contest in next Saturday's national quarterfinal. The site and time are to be determined.

Midwestern State sophomore Keidrick Jackson rushed for a career-high 184 yards and helped the Mustangs construct a 28-10 lead with 6:40 to play in the first half.

The Bearcats rallied to narrow the gap to 28-17 on James Franklin's 6-yard burst 2 minutes before halftime.

Midwestern took the wind and forced three Bearcat turnovers in the third quarter, but had only a 22-yard Greg Saladino field goal to show for it as the Mustangs took a 31-17 lead into the fourth quarter.

The Bearcats (11-2) used the wind to take control of the field position game in the fourth quarter as Trevor Adams found Kyle Kilgore for the second of his two TD receptions in the game to close out a 3-play, 27-yard drive to narrow the score to 31-24 with 7:51 to play.

After a three-and-out, Northwest Missouri took over possession at the 40-yard line and James Franklin sprinted in from 11 yards out with 4:56 to go to knot the game at 31-31.

The Mustangs rallied the ball down the field, but Saladino's 27-yard field goal attempt sailed wide right to send the game to overtime.

Adams and Kilgore connected for another 13-yard pitch-and-catch to give the Bearcats the lone score of the overtime period.

Midwestern State closes the season with a 10-1 mark.
