Thursday Showdown Ends in SU Heartbreak

WEST CHESTER, Pa. – SU scores 27 points in second half; plays first multiple-OT game in school history.A national television audience witnessed two prestigious PSAC institutions compete in a truly memorable showdown on Thursday evening from Farrell Stadium, as both Shippensburg and West Chester totaled 512 yards on offense in combining for 87 points.

Yet what was likely the longest game in Shippensburg University history ended in the most unfortunate of manners for the Red Raider faithful, as a blocked extra-point attempt in the second overtime gave West Chester a 44-43 victory in a contest that ended just before midnight.
