BANGOR, Maine - On a very special day for the Husson football seniors, the Eagles displayed an outstanding overtime comeback victory over Salve Regina University, after trailing 23-6 at the half.
Husson immediately kicked off the scoring on their first drive, with David Morrison connecting with Tyler Halls for a 31-yard touchdown, 6-0, but the Eagles entered into the final quarter behind, 23-15. With 9:46 on the clock, Morrison connected on a huge 71-yard catch-and-run to Halls for another touchdown, making it 23-21 in favor of the Seahawks. This pass launched Halls into the Husson record books, as he became the second player in program history to record 1,000 or more receiving yards in a single season. Keyshaun Robinson would rush for the crucial two-point conversion to tie the game at 23-23; which is where the score remained at the end of regulation.
Salve Regina received the first possession in extra minutes, but after stalling at the Eagle 4-yard line, settled for a 21-yard field goal to give themselves a 26-23 lead. This left Husson with one chance to answer back. A clutch pass from Morrison to Aidan Hogan in the end zone helped seal Husson's first overtime victory since 2014, as the stadium exploded into an uproar over the phenomenal 29-26 win on senior day.
