(Memphis,Tn) – East Carolina place kicker Ben Hartman had his chances. In fact he had two tries within a minute to break the 17-17 tie to secure victory for his ECU Pirates. One went left the other went right. The ECU defense played great all game keeping a very good Arkansas offense under 2 touchdowns. However those 2 touchdowns came in the third Qtr. when they needed them the most. Hartman’s 2 misses forced Overtime, where he had another chance to put one through. Again,he didn’t do it, as the ball hooked left. Arkansas got the ball on their possession and moved it 5 yards setting up for a game winning 37 yd field goal by Alex Tejada, to win the Liberty Bowl in Overtime 20-17. Hartman went 1 for 5 for Field Goal attempts. ECU Head Coach Skip Holtz was seen talking and joking with him before his last try in regulation seemingly to loosen him up. Should of just told him “You better @#$%*&% make it !’ I feel for Ben Hartman. He’ missed 6 all year, this game he missed 4. Anyhow, for all the wagerers who liked ECU and the +8 points came away happy.
