Omaha Beef hold on as Salina misses last-second field goal

SALINA, Kan. — Salina kicker Pete Smith’s 40-yard field-goal attempt sailed wide left as time expired, giving Omaha a 26-23 Champions Indoor Football victory Saturday.

Tied 23-23, Benny Hanaphy hit his fourth field goal of the game — what turned out to be the winner — with 52 seconds remaining for the Beef (4-3).

The Liberty started quickly, taking a 16-3 in the second quarter. But Omaha’s defense tightened up, allowing one more touchdown and picking up an interception and a goal-line stand in the third quarter.

The Beef took their first lead of the game at 20-16 when Chuck Wright completed a deep pass to Jordan Boykin for a touchdown.

Omaha returns home to Ralston Arena on Saturday, hosting Kansas City at 7:05 p.m.
