The touchdowns were plentiful and the swings of momentum in abundant supply Saturday at Sports Authority Field, where Pomona had a few more haymakers in the tank than Eaglecrest in the highest-scoring Class 5A title game in state history. Pomona’s big three on offense — senior quarterback Ryan Marquez, senior tailback Max Borghi and junior wideout Billy Pospisil — combined for 779 yards and all eight of the team’s touchdowns to give the Panthers a 56-49 victory for the program’s second state title and first since 1988. “The pressure was on us after being here three years in a row,” Pomona coach Jay Madden said. “Everyone was expecting our guys to win — but it was up to them to come out and earn it. It was supposed to be hard, and it was, and we can enjoy it that much more now.” The Raptors got the ball to start and senior Jalen Mergerson’s long heave to senior Theryne Sandoval-Jimenez on the game’s first play from scrimmage had Eaglecrest set up in Pomona territory. But the Panthers forced a fumble a couple plays later, and then used two long touchdown passes from Marquez to Pospisil to take a 14-0 lead into the second quarter. Eaglecrest, showing the grit of a team who booked its second consecutive undefeated regular season, bounced back with a Mergerson touchdown pass to Dawson Macomber to make it 14-7. But Borghi’s touchdown run on the following drive extended Pomona’s lead to 21-7, and it looked like the game was about to get out of hand. It was, just not in the sense of the blowout. The Raptors rattled off 21 unanswered points — including two that were set up on, or came by way of, a Borghi fumble — to take a 28-21 lead with just more than five minutes to play in the second quarter. “They just kept hammering at us,” Madden said. “We scored those 14 early points and then thought we were going to get an easy win — I knew that wasn’t the case, but it’s often hard to tell kids that.” Three more scores occurred before the teams headed to the tunnels tied, as both sides combined for 70 points and 795 yards of total offense. Borghi and Raptors senior Kenny Wantings then traded rushing touchdowns in the third quarter to make it 42-42. Wantings finished with 27
