Clarion Staff Reports
LINCOLN UNIVERSITY – The Blue Tigers fell short by an extra point in an overtime nail-biter against the Northeastern State (Okla.) Riverhawks. In a game that traded touchdowns to a 42-42 regulation end, it seemed the Blue Nation was about to put a mark in the win column. But a missed LU extra point in overtime gave the ultimate advantage and win to the opponent.
On a historical note, Saturday’s game marked the 50th anniversary of the first game played in Dwight T. Reed Stadium. On Sept. 25, 1971, LU beat Bimidji State 35-13.
The the Clarion will have more on the game Monday.
