When you are the No. 1 team in the nation, the breaks fall your way.
An 11-play, 89-yard drive stalled at the Bearcat 2-yard line on the Renegades’ first drive of the second half. Two personal foul penalties by the Bearcats aided the Southern Oregon effort.
On fourth down and trailing 3-0, the Renegades set up for a 19-yard field goal by Zach Gist. The snap to holder Justin Robertson skipped onto the ground, sending Robertson scrambling to make a play. He did, throwing the ball into a crowd of players in the end zone. Wide receiver Titan Mann came up with the football for the touchdown.
The extra-point try failed.
Grays Harbor had one chance to either tie or take the lead early in the fourth quarter. A 19-yard seam route pass from David Evans to Joe Winther put the Bearcats to the Renegade 10-yard line. The offense stalled, when one of Evans’ passes missed in the end zone, and Ogren came out for a tying field goal.
From 31-yards out, Ogren badly mis-hit the kick wide left.
The Renegades secured the win by intercepting quarterback Alex Todak twice to end Bearcat drives, including the final march with less than 30 seconds left.
On Saturday, Grays Harbor closes out the regular season by hosting the Oregon Blackshirts at 6 p.m.
