Richmond Hill native Dominique Allen’s big day led The Citadel to a last-second 41-38 win over Coastal Carolina in an opening-round Football Championship Subdivision playoff game Saturday in Conway, South Carolina.
According to ESPN.com, Allen ran for 174 yards and two touchdowns for the Bulldogs (9-3), who won on kicker Eric Goins’ 43-yard field goal as time expired. Allen had three carries for 15 yards on the final drive, which started after the Chanticleers (9-3) lost a fumble at their own 41 with 44 seconds left.
The Citadel will play No. 8 Charleston Southern at 1 p.m. next Saturday in Charleston, according to NCAA.com. Richmond Hill native Ronnie Harris is a freshman running back for Charleston Southern.
