Azusa Pacific’s Jamie Cacciatore booted a 25-yard field goal as the clock hit zeroes to beat Dixie State 23-20 Saturday night at Citrus College. The Cougars scored ten points in the last two and half minutes to hold off Dixie and improve to 8-1 in the GNAC, 8-2 overall.

Dixie State called three consecutive timeouts in an attempt to freeze Cacciatore before the game winning kick.

“In knew they were going to do that. I say bring it on!” Said Cacciatorre, who also made kicks of 19 and 34 yards.

The Cougars took their first lead of the game with 2:39 left in the fourth quarter on a three yard run by Ronald Douglas to make it 20-13, only to see Dixie State respond with a 44-yard pass from Griff Robles to Joel Davis to tie it at 20.
