  Dinos win second straight Hardy CupPDF files may take a moment to load

The University of Saskatchewan Huskies line up to take a field goal. There are 18 seconds left on the clock. The University of Calgary Dinos lead 39-38. Huskies kicker Grant Shaw has enjoyed a great day, nailing all five of his previous attempts. This is only a 35-yarder. No problem.

The snap comes out. It's bobbled. It's finally placed down, Shaw misses. It's wide and short. The Dinos run it out of their endzone to avoid the single. Game over. The Dinos win their second Hardy Cup in as many years.
