MISSION VIEJO, Calif – Junior quarterback Jax Leatherwood threw four touchdown passes to lift Scripps Ranch to a thrilling 31-28 victory over Wilcox on Saturday afternoon in the CIF State 2-A championship game at Saddleback College.

Leatherwood had given the Falcons a commanding 21-0 with three touchdown passes during the first half but the Chargers rallied and took a brief 28-24 lead with 2:17 left in the fourth quarter.

Scripps Ranch (14-1) quickly drove down field behind Leatherwood and he capped the game-winning drive with a 10-yard touchdown pass to receiver Dean Paley with just 27 seconds remaining.
