Hiddink's last-second field goal lifts Pirates past Eagles
|Wednesday, September 14, 2011
By Shiela K. Haynes
Pirates’ kicker Seth Hiddink started and finished Wylie’s come-from-behind 30-27 victory over Rowlett at Homer B. Johnson Stadium.
The senior opened the game with a 24-yard field goal. Late in the first half with Rowlett up 20-10, Hiddink kept the Pirates in contention with a 38-yarder.
Hiddink then came through with the biggest boot of the evening, nailing a 39-yarder with just two seconds left that broke a 27-27 deadlock.
After the game, the kicker said, “I’d been preparing pretty much the whole game. I knew that we were going to need me to step up. I did what I was trained to do.”
