Bjorn Nittmo's 28-yard field goal with 12 seconds remaining Saturday night lifted the Montreal

WLAFroundupMachine to a 31-29 victory over the Orlando Thunder in the World League of American Football.

Orlando trailed 28-15 early in the fourth quarter, but Darryl Clack's second rushing touchdown of the game brought the Thunder within 28-22 with 6:11 left. Clack picked up a fumble by teammate Stacey Simmons at the Montreal 26 and rumbled in.

Orlando took the lead with 1:19 remaining on a 21-yard touchdown pass to Joe Johnson from former Utah quarterback Scott Mitchell.

The Thunder dropped to 1-1. Dilweg, a former member of the NFL Green Bay Packers now with the Los Angeles Raiders, suffered a slightly separated shoulder in last week's season opener in San Antonio.
