NBL football: Windsor comes from behind to beat Santa Rosa

Windsor scored the game’s final 14 points to overtake host Santa Rosa and post a 37-28 victory Friday night.

The rally began when quarterback Colin McAlvain tossed an 18-yard touchdown pass to Trey Tobon. Following a two-point conversion, the Jaguars led 31-28.

The final TD was by Trenton Wells, an 8-yard run.

Prior to the Wells touchdown, Santa Rosa was moving to take the lead back. However, a fumbled snap gave the Jaguars the ball at the Panthers’ 40-yard line.

“We got a stop when we needed it,” Windsor coach Vic Amick said.

Amick went on to say his offensive unit controlled the ball the majority of the game.

McAlvain, whose brother Christian quarterbacked Windsor to an NCS title last year, also threw a 3-yard touchdown pass to Matt Basich in the second half.

Jahray Hayes, Santa Rosa’s leading rusher, finished with more than 100 yards. The senior scored a TD from two yards out in the third quarter.
