Both Life University and Central Washington needed some late heroics to win their Men's National Collegiate 7s semifinals and enter the championship game.
Life led 14-7 with two minutes remaining before Paul Benade's try for Arkansas State tied the game.
But with time up, Life was patient, retained possession, and finally Calvin Nell supported Cornelius Dirksen on a break to score the winner under the posts 21-14 Life.
Meanwhile, Central Washington ran out to a 14-0 lead and looked dominant before Kutztown rebounded and scored twice to close the score to 14-10 CWU.
Then with four minutes remaining Kutztown turned over ball and scored through Mike Lawrenson. That put Kutztown ahead 17-14 with time winding down.
But Tim Stanfill made four key plays to take CWU into the final. His break set up the attack that led to his try in the corner and a 19-17 lead.
Then Stanfill's tackle and poach forced a penalty to stop a KU attack, and then Stanfill's stop and grip on the ball forced a scrum to halt KU. That last one finished the game, and put Central Washington into the final against Life.
