Tanner’s field goal gives Jays win over top-ranked Hawklets
Saturday, October 8, 2011
Ryan Tanner got the second opportunity most kickers don’t get. After barely missing a kick wide left at the end of regulation that would have given the Jays a 26-23 win, the senior stepped up in the second overtime.
This time the kick sailed through the uprights and gave Jefferson City a 33-30 double overtime win against top-ranked Rockhurst.
“I just didn’t want to miss again,” Tanner said.
The kick gave Jefferson City its first win against the Hawklets since 1999, a string of 12 straight losses.
