RAMONA - Martin Torres delivered as promised for the Wyandotte Bears.
"He said a year ago he wanted to kick the winning field goal and with seconds left on the clock, he got to do it," Wyandotte head coach Scott Martin said.
Torres nailed a 23-yarder with two seconds remaining to give the Bears a 17-14 victory over Caney Valley, spoiling the Trojans' homecoming.
"It was a great win for us," Martin said. "It was our first road win together. It was a tough, hard-nosed game ... it was a battle. Our fans were rocking. It was pretty cool."
The kick capped a five-play, 55-yard drive for the Bears.
The Bears are off to their first 2-0 start since 2007, when WHS started the season 7-0 only to stumble in Week 8 in a road game at Keys.
Wyandotte tied the game at 14-14 with 3:54 remaining in regulation on a 57-yard touchdown pass from Tate Smith to Brady Barrett and the conversion run by Dalton Cummings.
"We wore them down in the fourth quarter," Martin said. "We knew going in they were a two-tight bone team and it would take a lot of time off the clock. Coach Skimbo ( Johnny Skimbo) made a great call at the end of the game. I thought our offensive line did a great job of pass protection and made a huge play at the end of the game."
Caney Valley jumped out to a 6-0 lead on a 2-yard touchdown run by Dillon Ward with 3:21 left in the first quarter. The extra point kick failed.
The Bears got the equalizer when Smith powered over from the 2-yard line with 3:47 until intermission. The PAT kick by Torres was off the mark.
A 3-yard run by William Bradley and the conversion run by Bryce Whittle staked the Trojans to a 14-6 lead with 5:40 remaining.
The Bears took the ensuing kickoff and mounted a 58-yard, four-play drive that was capped by the Smith-to-Barrett TD strike.
Wyandotte finished with 194 yards in total offense, 111 of that coming via the pass.
Cummings was the Bears' leading rusher with 59 yards on 16 carries.
Smith completed 8 of 13 passes for 111 yards and the one score.
Ryan Garrett, Andrew Douthit, Barrett, Seth Shettlesworth and Lane House each had a pass reception.
