Raiders end league skid with a furious finish

Caleb Chavez pulls down a 17-yard TD in the final minute for the winning score


by: THE OUTLOOK: DAVID BALL - Reynolds lineman Theo Samue prepares to take the field.

Reynolds found the end zone twice in the final minutes Thursday night to get past Centennial 34-27.

The Raiders trailed 27-20 with 4:36 to play when they drove 88 yards for the tying touchdown. Reynolds QB Josh Schleining hooked up with Caleb Chavez to convert a long third down in the middle of the drive, and the duo connected again for 36 yards on 4th-and-8. That set the stage for Kyle Auda to go in from 2 yards out — Angel Garcia added the extra point, and the game was tied with 2:00 to play.

Reynolds got the ball back shortly on a Treshawn Linne interception at the 35-yard line. A sack and a penalty had the Raiders going the wrong direction, but Schleining found Quentin Bates on a 33-yard pass that put Reynolds in scoring range.

The Schleining-to-Chavez express came up big one last time with a 17-yard touchdown strike to give the Raiders the win with 0:23 on the clock.

Reynolds ended a 23-game winless streak in league play that dated back to the 2008 season.
