Fumble return lands Raiders a comeback win
Reynolds puts up the final 21 points to beat Gresham
Mount Hood Conference
TROUTDALE Reynolds put up the last three touchdowns of the night to overcome a 16-point halftime deficit and claim a 29-23 home win over Gresham.
The Raiders pulled even after running back Jonas Ford found the end zone on a 17-yard run, and QB Jesus Ortiz ran in the two-point conversion to knot the score 23-23 with 4:12 to play.
Ford struck again moments later when Gresham fumbled at midfield, and he scooped up the loose ball and sprinted to the end zone for the winning score his third touchdown of the night. He started the second half with a 56-yard TD run.
Gresham built a 16-0 lead in the first half and was threatening for more in the final minute before Reynolds Dylan Uyematsu made an over-the-shoulder interception down the center of the field heading into the locker room.
