That’s all we can say right now after what will be looked back on as one of the great comebacks in team history. The Charlotte 49ers, down 45-24 headed into the 4th quarter, somehow, someway, pulled off the impossible and came away with a stirring 53-51 win over #24 Gardner-Webb at Jerry Richardson Stadium. The Bulldogs scored 21 third quarter points to get into the driver’s seat of this one, but the Niners responded with 29 fourth-quarter points–four touchdowns (plus three extra points) and a safety to complete the stunning victory in front of their home fans.
Naturally, Niner Nation responded to the win in a big way on Twitter and took to the social network to voice their excitement and thrill after what they had just seen (and heard). Here’s just a bit of what we saw and picked out from the number of tweets.
But the tweet of the day may belong to #55 himself, center Mason Sledge:
Niner pride is flowing around Charlotte, and for the fans that were there, they’ll have something to talk about for a while. For those that weren’t there, they’ll be wishing that they were.
Enjoy the win, Niner Nation.
