Iraan 27, Winters 26 Final


The Iraan Braves improved to 6-0 on the season with and come-from-behind 27-26 win over the Winters Blizzards in Iraan's homecoming game Friday.

The loss was the first of the season for Winters (5-1).

Iraan jumped out to a 7-0 lead when Jermaine Bernal recovered a fumble and returned it for a touchdown. Dylan Kent hit the PAT kick -- something the Braves have struggled with this season.

Winters scored and converted the two-point conversion to take an 8-7 lead in the first quarter.

In the second, Mario De Luna had a scoring run, but the PAT failed, leaving Iraan up 13-8 early in the second quarter.

But Winters again came back, scoring once in the second quarter and again in the third to build a 20-13 lead.

Iraan took the lead for good with two fourth quarter touchdowns, one each from Joe Kennedy and Dylan Kent to go up 27-20 with 2:57 left in the game.

Winters scored a late touchdown to pull with 27-26, but Iraan stopped the 2-point conversion to preserve the win.

Iraan travels to Alpine next week for its final non-district game.
