Tigers fail to convert effort into victory

Villanova 14 Towson 12

Abortive 2-point bid late in game enables Wildcats to escape

November 11, 2007|By Todd Karpovich | Todd Karpovich,Special to the Sun

Towson has been hampered by turnovers, penalties and stalled drives for most of the season, and though those problems surfaced again yesterday against Villanova, the Tigers still had a chance at a comeback in the final minute of the game.

Sean Schaefer threw a 7-yard touchdown pass to Demetrius Harrison with 52 seconds left, but a failed two-point conversion helped the Wildcats escape with a 14-12 victory. The loss keeps the Tigers in last place in the South Division of the Colonial Athletic Association with a 1-6 record heading into the final regular-season game at James Madison on Saturday.
