Football: Corona Centennial holds on for 36-32 win
Corona Centennial Coach Matt Logan made a gutsy call and it worked out for the Huskies in a 36-32 interdivisional over Mission Hills Alemany.
Rather than give the ball back to the Warriors for one last shot at the end zone, Centennial went for it on fourth and 11 from the Alemany 38-yard line and caught the defense by surprise. Robert Webber threw a short pass to receiver Chase Krivashei, who scooted up the sideline for a first down with 4.7 seconds left.
One kneel down later the Huskies had clinched their second victory of the season.
"We were going to go for it all the way, it was just a question of which play we would run to give him the ball," Logan said. "We learned about our heart and perseverance when we lost our first game [to Ventura St. Bonaventure]. Our O-line did a great job and our running backs are a good 1-2 punch."
Austin Renken ran for 223 yards and two touchdowns and Tre Watson added 111 yards and three touchdowns for Centennial, which sacked Alemany quarterback Devon Dunn six times.
