(Covina) – Juaquin Elliott scored twice, including a five-yard run in the fourth quarter to lead South Hills to a 24-21 win over Diamond Ranch Thursday night at Covina District Field.
After Elliott scored early in the fourth and a South Hills field goal later in the quarter made it 24-14, Diamond Ranch’s Cade Miller hit Cristian Dixon with a touchdown pass with just 49 seconds left to cut the South Hills lead to three. The Huskies then recovered the onside kick to secure the victory.
Elliott also found the end zone in the second quarter to tie it at 14. After Connor Clark gave Diamond Ranch an early 7-0 lead with a four-yard TD run, Thonye Charles returned a blocked field 67 yards for a score to tie it at 7.
Dixon hauled in a six-yard pass from Miller in the second for a 14-7 lead before South Hills tied it and then eventually took the lead.
South Hills improved to 8-0 and 3-0 in the Hacienda with the victory while Diamond Ranch dropped to 5-3 and 2-1.
