But he had just a little help:
RENO — It’s every kicker’s dream to kick a game-winning field goal. Austin Pacheco did it last year when his overtime kick beat arch-rival Douglas 16-13.
Pacheco had his second game-winner of his Carson High career on Saturday, and he’ll remember this one for many, many years.
With the help of a prevailing wind, Pacheco blasted a 64-yard field goal through the uprights with 27.4 seconds left to snap a 24-all tie and give the Senators a 27-24 win over Bishop Manogue.
But the first word that ran through my mind as I read this was SCHOLARSHIP.
