With 1:05 left on the clock in the FCS game Thursday, Richmond was trailing St. Francis, 27-23, in the game that was originally set for Saturday but was moved up because of Hurricane Florence.

Led by quarterback Kevin Johnson, the Spiders stormed up the field on a drive that started on their own 35-yard line, lasted 63 seconds and included a sack and two Richmond timeouts.

But with 1.7 seconds left on the clock, Johnson connected with Tyler Wilkins in the back corner of the end zone for a 6-yard touchdown and a 29-27 lead - because Richmond took a knee on the extra point attempt to avoid a blocked kick.

Despite less than two seconds left on the clock, the back-and-forth game was hardly over there. More via RichmondSpiders.com:

Richmond "kicked off to the Red Flash on a fair catch at the 34. Saint Francis tried to lateral the ball multiple times on the final play but fumbled and junior defensive end Maurice Jackson (Levittown, Pa.) scooped up the ball and returned it 29-yards with the clock at zero for the second touchdown in the last 1.7 seconds."

Not only was it two touchdowns in less than two seconds, but neither touchdown came with an extra point.

So, 12 points, 1.7 seconds, and Richmond came out on top, 35-27. Crazy.
