MODESTO -- Running back Matt Ringer had four touchdown runs to go with his game-high 264 rushing yards as the host Central Catholic High football team edged McClymonds 38-24 on Friday night.
Central Catholic led 14-12 at half but Ringer's rushing touchdowns of 10, 9 and 25 yards sealed the deal.
The Warriors were led by junior running back Lavance Warren and senior quarterback Emoni Fountain, as Warren scored three touchdowns and ran for 199 yards. Foutain had 112 passing yards with a touchdown to Lavon Washington, completing 9 of 19 passes. Fountain also ran for 48 yards on nine carries.
The Warriors were hurt by penalties as an interception return for a touchdown was called back, and later were penalized on a muffed punt by the Raiders.
"I am very proud of my team. They stayed in it until the end," said McClymonds coach Michael Peters. "Any other circumstance we win the game, but we were there, we were in it."
