KU tops Ashland on late TD pass

KLAMATH FALLS — Riley Kemp threw an 82-yard touchdown pass to Peter Bell with 1 minute, 14 seconds to go in the game to give Klamath Union a 14-7 nonconference victory over Ashland Friday night at Modoc Field.

The game-winning TD capped a huge game for Bell, who had three catches for 160 yards and two touchdown receptions. His other score came on a 63-yard catch and gave the Pelicans a 7-0 lead at the end of the first quarter.

Ashland tied the game on Jake Scarminach's quarterback keeper with 8:10 to go in the first half. Scarminach completed 17 of 29 passes for 221 yards, but was picked off twice.

"We got into the red zone, but we're still having some red zone issues," Ashland head coach Charlie Hall said. "We get down there and then shoot ourselves in the foot. We just didn't execute very well."

Kemp completed 8 of 15 passes for 182 yards and two touchdowns and also gained 28 yards on nine carries.

The Grizzlies were in position to break a 7-7 tie late, driving inside the KU 40-yard line with less than two minutes to go, but the drive ended when the Pelicans intercepted a fourth-down pass by Scarminach. Moments later, Kemp found Bell for the game-winning score.

"They ran (Bell) on a deep route and it was just one of those things where we had a breakdown in coverage," Hall said.

Klamath Union narrowly outgained Ashland 319 yards to 305, including 137 to 84 on the ground.
