Alex James, pictured, scored a two point conversion after a fake point after kick that proved decisive as the Florence Christian Eagles edged Laurence Manning Academy's Swampcats 8- 7 tonight at Billy Chitwood Field.
"A disappointing outcome," said LMA Head Coach Robbie Briggs after FCS ran out the remaining seconds to take the non-conference game.
Mistakes, penalties -- some questionable -- and a missed field goal were cited as factors.
"And we turned the ball over inside our 20 and you can't do that," he said. "That's it."
The Swampcats, 4-1, will square off against Cardinal Newman in Columbia next Friday.
