KENT — Auburn Riverside ended more than three years of losing by stunning sixth-ranked Kentridge 14-13 last night at French Field in a South Puget Sound League North Division football game.
Auburn Riverside broke a 34-game losing streak, dating to Oct. 1, 1999, a 31-0 victory over Enumclaw.
Trailing 13-0 in the fourth quarter, Auburn Riverside (1-1, 1-1) scored with 8:53 left on a 77-yard pass from Richard Bigelow to Ryan Reynolds. Bigelow then connected with Andy Chevalier on a 47-yard pass with two minutes remaining.
Bigelow was 12 for 20 for 203 yards and intercepted once. Chevalier had four catches for 69 yards and Reynolds had two for 86 yards.
The Chargers (1-1, 1-1) rushed for 163 yards, led by Chris Paris, who had 62 yards on 15 attemps and scored on a 4-yard run.
Chad Spencer scored Kentridge's other touchdown on a 3-yard run. The PAT was blocked, which became crucial.
Auburn Riverside had shown signs of improvement by playing tough against two-time defending state champion Kentwood in last week's opener, a 34-21 loss.
At White River 42, Kennedy 13 — Jason Gran passed for four touchdowns and ran an interception back for another score and the Hornets (1-1) knocked off the 10th-ranked Lancers (1-1) in a nonleague game.
