Slattery sends Illinois State to victory over Northwestern

Posted:
EVANSTON (WREX) -

Boylan graduate and Illinois State kicker Sean Slattery knocked the game-winning field goal off the uprights and in with three seconds left as the Redbirds recorded their first ever win against a team from the Big Ten Conference.

It was not a game for fans of points and offense, as ISU slugged it out with the Wildcats in a 9-7 decision decided on the final play.

Pat Fitzgerald iced Slattery twice with a pair of timeouts, but the former Titan wasn't fazed by the collegiate coach of another Boylan grad - Packers rookie Dean Lowry.

Rockford Lutheran grad James Robinson recorded one catch for four yards for ISU in his second college game under Rockford East grad and ISU head coach Brock Spack.
