On Friday evening, ETSU played Mars Hill in their season opener.

It ended in a final score of 44–7 in favor of the Buccaneers.

Just after ETSU scored their first touchdown of the game,

the stadium crew made a major error.

As ETSU's kicker began his move to kick an extra point, a cannon was fired.

The holder jumped slightly and the kick never happened.

Hopefully next time the stadium crew will remember 

to fire the cannon after the extra point, and not during this.
