1. Football Rallies Against Wofford but Loses in OT

[“I’m disappointed we got beat. We played hard, we had a chance there to get beat bad with a couple of costly mistakes early,” said Hatcher. “We bent a lot on defense but we didn’t break. What a goal-line stand there in the fourth quarter and then what an awesome 89-yard drive to get it off our one-foot line to tie the game. The thing that disappoints me the most is after we scored I had a fake-field goal called that we practice all the time and we had a couple of boys not run out there. Then at the end I thought I had a good call for the two-point conversion.”]


2. Volleyball Starts Slow, Loses to Chattanooga

[“I thought that we had absolutely no focus or discipline to start the match and that’s really what it comes down to,” said GSU head coach Chad Callihan. “When you beat a team statistically and we outhit a team by 40 points and lose the match. That’s just not supposed to happen. We outblocked them 12 to six. We just weren’t able to maintain consistency – 15 service errors, untimely hitting errors. I can remember four opportunities where we had an opportunity to serve to take the lead and missed all four of those serves. We really weren’t giving ourselves a chance to push ahead. But give credit to Chattanooga, they’re a scrappy team. But when you’re ahead statistically like that you’re supposed to win the match.”]


3. Women’s Soccer Continues Conference Play at Furman

[Georgia Southern rallied in the second half tying the match at 1-1 in the 61st minute of action. Senior Ashley Toussaint (Warner Robbins, Ga.) scored the game tying goal, her sixth goal of the season, off of a pass by Sophomore Michelle Berard (Kennesaw, Ga.).]


4. Eagles loose heartbreaker in overtime

[The conversion failed as Chapple was sacked and the Eagles faced their second straight heartbreaking loss, 37-38. “The play was a flat route to the halfback,” quoted Chapple. “Wofford jumped it though, so I looked backside. By the time I turned, pressure had gotten to me and I was just sacked.”]


5. Heartbreak Part II

["We actually had a fake extra point called, a play we worked on quite a bit," Hatcher said. "We practice it all the time after scoring a touchdown and we didn't have enough guys on the field. We had a couple guys that didn't get the call, and that's coaching. That's poor coaching. That's what disappoints me the most and then we had to use the timeout."]


6. Gamble doesn't pay off for Georgia Southern

["We wanted to win the game," Hatcher said. "I thought at that point that was our best chance. "We have a fake extra point play we practice every day just for that situation. We just did not execute. We did not have enough guys on the field, and that was just poor coaching."]


7. GSU loses another heartbreaker

["It was typical Georgia Southern out there," Camp said. "We fought to the end. We just came up short."]


8. Wofford notebook: Goldwire has sweet homecoming

[In front of family and friends just 30 miles from his hometown, Wofford linebacker Seth Goldwire had one of the best games of his career in Wofford’s 38-37 victory at Paulson Stadium.]

9. Wofford tops Georgia Southern in overtime thriller

[“At the end,” Eagles second-year head coach Chris Hatcher said, “I thought I had a good call for the two-point conversion. … We got beat. I’m disappointed in that. But I don’t know if I’ve ever been more proud of a group after a defeat than this football team tonight.”]

10. Wofford 38, Georgia Southern 37, OT: Three things we learned

[The Terriers have the nerve and the will to hang on when things get tough. They lost all momentum in the fourth quarter and the lead with six seconds left in regulation. Yet, they showed determination that would not let them lose.]
