Merrimack football defeats division 1 Wagner 42-41

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. – Trailing by six, 41-35, with just over five minutes to play, the Merrimack College football team, led by senior quarterback Joe Clancy (Newburyport, Mass.) orchestrated a drive for the ages that stretched 14 plays for 96 yards before finding classmate Shane Ferguson (Point Pleasant Beach, N.J.) for a three-yard, game-deciding strike, and that was enough to propel the Warriors past reigning Northeast Conference (Div. I) champion Wagner, 42-41, in an unforgettable Friday night battle at Hameline Field.
