David Hills was perfect on three field-goal attempts, including one from a career-long 47 yards away, supplying the team's only scoring until the final minute. "I wish all three of them had been extra points," said the senior from Latham, N.Y. "This is bittersweet in a game like this. I`m glad I kicked them, but it doesn't cut it."
