After a scoreless first half, Ripon High’s Nate Morrow scored from one yard out midway in the fourth quarter to tie the game and that score held as the Indians and Sierra sophomore teams played to a 14-14 non-league tie Friday night at Daniel Teicheira Memorial Stadium. 

 The Timberwolves’ Damon Duran (11 carries, 88 yards) scored on 43-yard run in the third quarter to put Sierra ahead 7-0 and after Ripon’s Tino Raygoza pulled in an 8-yard scoring pass from Ryan Daggett (7 of 11 passing, 96 yards) later in the third period to tie the score at 7-7, Duran scored from 23 yards out early in the fourth period to spot the Timberwolves to a 14-7 lead. 

 Murrow led the Indians with 60 yards on 14 carries. James Gaalswk helped save the tie for the Indians with an interception on the last play of the game and teammate Gamino Cameron had a first-quarter fumble recovery. 

 Caden Worth was 11 of 20 passing for 60 yards for the Timberwolves. Angelo Talamontes had an interception for Sierra, Carson Anderson a fumble recovery and Kenny Wade helped set up Duran’s touchdowns with kickoff returns of 30 and 40 yards.
