College football: Hilbrands' TD helps Bethel advance

The Bethel College Royals needed to halt a two-point conversion by Concordia-Chicago at River Forest, Ill., in the last 15 seconds to squeeze out a 24-23 win in the first round of the NCAA DIII football playoffs.

Jay Hilbrands, a senior wide receiver from Clara City (MACCRAY), caught a 23-yard TD pass as the Minnesota team built a 17-3 halftime lead. It was his team-leading seventh TD catch.
