Juwan Epperson opened his senior season with a night to remember.
The Pacheco High quarterback struck for five touchdowns, including a game-winning rushing score with 2:16 left in the game to seal a 35-29 road victory over Bear River.
The Panthers trailed 22-8 in the first half when Epperson began the comeback charge. He found Frank Ginda for a 61-yard TD pass just before the half. He then hooked up with Lebe Velasquez and Jose DeLaCruz for second-half touchdown passes to give Pacheco a 29-22 lead after three.
Chris Munoz came up with an interception in the last two minutes to seal it.
Stone Ridge Chr. 37, Woodland Chr. 15 in Woodland – Senior running back Bailey Dahlhoff led the Knight ground game with over 200 rushing yards and a pair of touchdowns in a road victory over Woodland Christian.
Hilmar 10, Livingston 7 in Livingston – Anthony Deol gave the Wolves (0-1) a 7-0 lead at halftime on a rushing touchdown, but that was it for the Livingston offense.
Hilmar rallied for 10 third-quarter points in that proved the difference in this local-rivalry clash.
Chowchilla 27, Madera South 14 in Madera – Anthony Stewart, Fernando Martinez and Danny Chavez all found the back of the end zone on rushing touchdowns as the Redskins (1-0) never trailed in a road victory over Madera.
Clovis East 32, Golden Valley 25 in Atwater – Golden Valley running back Isaac Montanez had touchdown runs of 65 and 75 yards, but the Cougars couldn't catch Clovis East.
Clovis East jumped out to a 15-0 lead after two touchdown passes from quarterback Trey Semien.
Montanez's two long runs helped Golden Valley trim the lead to 15-13 in the second quarter.
