MSU Moorhead wins on last second Hail Mary

The Dragons of Minnesota State-Moorhead hadn't started a season with two consecutive victories since 2006.

Until Saturday.

Moorhead was trailing Concordia-St. Paul 28-24, and had four seconds left on the clock when quarterback Jake Hodge chucked the ball deep to Damon Gibson. However, the ball bounced off Gibson's hands.

Then, as Dragons fans held their breath, the football gods looked favorable upon Moorhead, and Dragons wide reciever Cory Ambrose caught the tipped pass in the corner of the endzone to start their season 2-0 for the first time in nine years.

One would think that a team that lost its three top scorers to graduation would take a big step backwards. Head coach Karla Nelson — who has never posted a losing record in her 16 full seasons at the helms of the Dragons — simply wouldn’t allow it. Somehow, some way, the Dragons are off to one of their best starts in program history. After suffering an opening night loss, the Dragons have reeled off 13 wins in a row.
