The Timberline High football team pulled off a comeback for the ages Friday to snap its 12-game losing streak.

Trailing 25-6 late in the fourth quarter at Meridian, Timberline (1-2) scored 20 points in the final two minutes to pull out a 26-25 victory.

“It’s a validation to these kids that their hard work pays off,” Timberline coach Ian Smart said in a phone interview. “It’s hard to continue to sell to keep doing the right things and it will pay off when you’ve lost 12 straight. But this group in particular has really bought into the work we’re trying to put in and the culture we’re trying to build.”

Quarterback Andy Peters got the rally started with a 14-yard touchdown pass to Nicolas Caballero with 1 minute, 34 seconds left. Meridian recovered the ensuing onside kick, but Timberline got the ball back and Peters hit Jackson Schultz for an 81-yard TD pass with 45 seconds left.

Timberline’s Jose Rexech recovered the next onside kick, and Peters saved his best for last. He escaped three Meridian defensive linemen eyeing a game-ending sack, found room on the left and fired a 21-yard TD pass to Schultz as time expired to complete the comeback.

Peters finished the game with four touchdown passes.

Eagle held Borah scoreless through the first three quarters on its way to a victory in 5A SIC action.

Eagle improved to 3-0 this season and held onto a tie for first place in the 5A SIC with Rocky Mountain.

Borah scored all of its points in the fourth quarter as Austin Bolt ran for a 2-yard TD and Alec Gray hit Sal Jimenez for a 33-yard TD pass.

CENTENNIAL 26, SKYVIEW 21
