HAMMOND, La. - New Hampshire quarterback Sean Goldrich ran for a career-high 99 yards and three touchdowns, the last with 47 seconds left, and the Wildcats defeated Southeastern Louisiana 20-17 in the quarterfinals of the FCS playoffs Saturday night.

The victory put New Hampshire (10-4) into the national semifinals for the first time. The Wildcats will play at two-time defending national champion North Dakota State on Friday night.

Goldrich's touchdowns went for 32, 1 and 2 yards. He was 24-of-35 passing for 276 yards. He led a 14-play, 80-yard drive for the winning score.

Bryan Bennett was 25 of 46 for 269 yards and a touchdown for Southeastern (11-3). The junior transfer from Oregon also ran for a 2-yard score. His touchdown pass to Marquis Fruge , which came after he escaped the grasps of two defenders on fourth-and-goal from the 5, gave the Lions a 17-14 lead with 5:17 left.
