CHARLESTON, Ill. — The Eastern Kentucky Colonels scored a go-ahead touchdown with just 37 seconds remaining Saturday to take a 20-13 lead at Eastern Illinois.

And it still wasn’t enough.

The host Panthers got the ball back on their own 33-yard line, and four plays later they evened the score at 20-all on a 26-yard Scott Gilkey-to-Alexander Hollins touchdown pass with just 1.9 seconds remaining. That sent the game to overtime where the Panthers made Matt Severino’s 45-yard field goal stand for a 23-20 win after intercepting the Colonels on their first play of overtime.

The game was a stalemate throughout with the two teams tied 7-7 after the first quarter, 10-10 at halftime, 13-13 after three quarters, and finally, 20-all heading into the extra period.

With the two teams each picking up 14 first downs and turning the ball over twice, there was little to separate the two teams heading into the wild final minute. Eastern’s second turnover, however, would prove to be the most costly slamming the door shut on the Colonels in overtime before they even had a chance to get going.

Eastern Kentucky will return home for its final two contests starting with Austin Peay this coming weekend. Eastern Illinois, meanwhile, will take a weekend off before visiting that same Austin Peay squad on November 18 to close the season.
