"This was a game for sole possession of first place in the TVYFL," said Ravens' coach Joe Powers. "We led from start to finish."
Zachary Rodriguez threw a pair of touchdown passes, including a 20-yard scoring toss to Gregory Reichmuth and a 44-yarder to Christian Segura, helping to extend the Ravens' win streak to five games.
Joseph McGarry had a 3-yard touchdown run, and Kaden Williams added a 7-yard dash for another score for the Ravens (5-0).
"Both teams showed why they were undefeated coming in -- we knew it would be a battle," Powers said. "Tri-City is a very well coached team, and there's a good possibility we will see them again for playoffs."
The novice Ravens walked off the field with a stunning 31-25 overtime victory on the road against the Tri-City Bulldogs at Le Grand High.
"For these kids to figure out a way to dig deep and pull out the win was amazing," said Ravens' coach James Perez. "I'm really proud of their effort across the board."
The local team needed an epic fourth-quarter surge to secure their conquest and to save their unblemished season.
In a back-and-forth game, the Ravens (5-0) finally shut the door with a 10-yard touchdown run by Jordan Imada in overtime. Imada also added a 35-yard scoring run against the Bulldogs.
Teammate Jared Rosas also scored twice, his first on a 20-yard scamper, and again on a 60-yard TD run.
Javier Huizar added a 10-yard touchdown trot for the Ravens.
