ANNAPOLIS, Md. — One week after missing an extra point in the second overtime that cost his team, Navy kicker Nick Sloan redeemed himself Saturday against Pittsburgh.

Sloan booted a 30-yard field-goal as time expired that gave the Midshipmen a 24-21 victory over the Panthers.

Navy (4-3) snapped a two-game losing streak and needs just two wins to become eligible for a bowl game.

After Sloan missed the extra point against Toledo last week, the Rockets scored on their next possession to escape with a 45-44 victory. Sloan said he heard Pitt coaches make comments about that game when he was near their sideline. Nonetheless, he didn’t feel any added pressure when he lined up for the game-winning kick.

“It’s every kickers dream to be in this situation,” Sloan said. “It’s definitely what separates the good kickers from the bad kickers. I thought of it as just another kick. That’s all I can do.”
