It was a roller coaster game on an emotional night in Del Paso Heights on Friday between No. 16 Del Oro and No. 17 Grant.

And it ended on Jorge Vega's 32-yard field goal with one second left for a 31-30 win over the Golden Eagles in which the Grant fans stormed the field afterward in celebration.

Marquise Carter-Petit rushed for 263 yards and three touchdowns on 18 carries for the Pacers (2-3), who snapped a three-game skid.
