Alright everyone. Thanks for coming on the live blog tonight. It was intense, no doubt. Read below for my summary of the Ygnacio Valley game.
Ygnacio Valley 34, Ukiah 33: With the host Wildcats driving to try and win the game, Ygnacio Valley defensive back Steven Porschet intercepted a pass with less than a minute remaining to give the No. 12 Warriors a dramatic NCS Division II win over No. 5 Ukiah.
With the win, Ygnacio Valley (8-3) advances to play No. 4 Campolindo on Nov. 29 at 7 p.m. in Moraga.
Things looked bleak for the Warriors when, with just under two minutes remaining, Ukiah (8-3) scored a touchdown to make the score 34-33. Ygnacio Valley defensive tackle Siua Taufa came up big though, blocking the point-after attempt.
Even after Taufa’s heroics, the fun wasn’t quite over for Ygnacio Valley. A Patrone Wood II fumble gave the Wildcats the ball back with about a minute remaining before Porschet’s interception.
