Just before the CIF Southern California Division IV title game between Rio Hondo Prep (Arcadia)
and Santa Fe Christian (Solana Beach)
went to halftime, the fans were treated to an implausible touchdown play.
Rather than throwing a standard Hail Mary in a tie game with less than a second left in the half, Rio Hondo Prep opted for a double-pass, with quarterback Colby Rivera
throwing a lateral to a wide receiver, who then launched the ball into the end zone.
After the ball bounced off of several hands, Rio Hondo's Christian Torrico
snatched it up for a touchdown.
The score put Rio Hondo up 21-14 heading into the half.
Santa Fe Christian had the last laugh, however, as the Eagles came from behind to win the game, 30-28
