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.
