September 20, 2014 - Marcelo Bonani kicks 53-yard game winner over Central Arkansas
"There's a long way to the finish line, but Missouri State's football team had an unbelievably magical moment on a steamy Saturday night. 'Unbelievable,' defensive end James Barnes said outside a raucous locker room after the Bears' 33-31 victory over Central Arkansas — won on Marcelo Bonani's 53-yard field goal on the final play of the game. Bonani's career-long kick cleared the crossbar by about a foot. It set off a wild celebration at midfield with Bonani escaping the dog pile of humanity unharmed. 'Kickers have the reputation of being loved or hated,' Bonani said with a smile. He noted a missed extra point earlier in the game that weighed heavily on his mind.
