SPECIAL TO OCVARSITY.COM

Sonora opened with a methodical 15-play, 80-yard drive that erased more than 7 minutes off the clock. The Raiders recovered from a personal foul penalty deep in Coyote territory to take a 6-0 lead when Mahlstede connected with Jacob Kent for an 8-yard touchdown pass.

The only trouble the Raiders caused for themselves was on conversions. They failed on all five attempts, included a pair of blocks by the Coyotes. Buena Park took a 7-6 lead with just over 5 minutes left in the first half when Deven Boston recovered his own fumble in the end zone after a 33-yard run.

A Raider drive lasting 63 yards, on 10 plays, culminated in a 1-yard TD run by Mun with 27 seconds left before halftime. Buena Park responded with a 26-yard TD strike from Tarvis Hood to Jaylin Hawkins.

Sonora dominated after intermission, taking the lead for good on a 24-yard scoring from Mahlstede to Nate Miranda. Matthew Villasenor, who had 98 yards on 26 carries, added a 1-yard touchdown run midway through the final quarter.
