No. 10: The short kick

Top 10 finishes of the D3football.com era

<- Intro

No. 9 ->

This win was all on the kicker. Susquehanna's Bobby Eppleman had an extra point blocked that kept Merchant Marine in the lead, 35-34, with 23 seconds left in the game Oct. 4, 2008.

But with everyone on the Mariners side expecting an onside kick, Eppleman kicked the ball with his left foot instead, lofting the ball far over the hands team, where Susquehanna eventually recovered it. 

With one second left, Eppleman came back out and kicked the game-winning field goal, sending the homecoming crowd of 4,500 home happy.
