EUGENE — The Medford Red Tornado Pop Warner Pee Wee football team rallied in the fourth quarter to defeat Thurston 7-6 in the championship game on Sunday at Autzen Stadium.
The Red Tornado, which had two first-half touchdowns called back by penalties, finally cracked the scoring column with a touchdown with about six minutes remaining in the contest.
It was the first loss of the season for the Falcons, who scored their touchdown just before halftime but failed on their extra point attempt.
