University of Calgary Dinos kicker Niko Difonte has made the record books this weekend with his 59-yard field goal.
The Dinos football team won 44-43 over the UBC Thunderbirds to win the 81st Hardy Cup.
The Dinos posted the clip of Difonte winning the game and noted the kick made sports headlines in the U.S. (He was making big kicks back in high school. Check out the Global News story HERE).
“It wasn’t just the Canadian media that took notice of Niko DiFonte’s game-winning kick at the 81st Hardy Cup. The 59-yard field goal by DiFonte was featured last night on ESPN’s SportsCenter!”
The winner will go on to the Vanier Cup, the national championships. – Sarah
