ECU kicker Owen Daffer misses game-tying XP and game-winning FG vs. NC State

East Carolina sophomore kicker Owen Daffer had a really rough day Saturday in their season-opening loss against North Carolina State, missing a game-tying extra point and a game-winning field goal in the final minutes of the game.

With 2:58 left in the game, East Carolina scored a touchdown to reduce NC State's lead to 21-20. Daffer lined up for the game-tying extra point, and...pulled it left.

With NC State still holding a 21-20 lead, Daffer had a chance to redeem himself with a 42-yard field goal attempt from the left hashmark with nine seconds left to win the game. Unfortunately, Daffer's kick went wide right. Tough way to lose, and we feel for Daffer. East Carolina fought hard, but comes up short on their upset bid. [LBS]
