There’s never a shortage of excitement when the NEC’s two Constitution State members line up against one another.
Thus was the case back in 2009 at Arute Field, and the circumstances would become even more exciting as the annual battle between Central Connecticut and Sacred Heart wore on.
After James Mallory’s 9-yard burst gave CCSU a 17-12 lead with 6:50 remaining in the fourth quarter, Dale Fink and Sacred Heart attempted to answer.
Fink, who would eventually finish his career as the all-time leading passer in NEC history, needed only six plays to march the Pioneers down into the red zone.
With under 3:00 left on the clock, Sacred Heart was five yards away from the potential game-winning score and then Marcus Dorsey (#8) did this…
And, just in case you were wondering, yes, Dorsey’s play did make the #SCTop10 that evening.
