WENATCHEE — Seton Catholic scored three touchdowns in a 5-minute span in the fourth quarter, rallying for a 42-35 win over Cashmere in the Class 1A quarterfinals on Saturday at the Apple Bowl.

Seton, which entered the playoffs as the No. 12 seed, will play top-ranked Royal next week in the semifinals.

After trailing 35-21, with 7:19 to go, Seton got a 30-yard TD pass from Kolten Gesser to Teddy Wieczorek.

On the ensuing kickoff, Wieczorek recovered a pooch kick, setting up the Cougars with a short field.

Ryker Ruelas then caught a 31-yard scoring pass from Joe Callerame to tie the game.

Moments later, Seton started a 94-yard drive that ended with a go-ahead 9-yard run from Callerame.

Ruelas had a game-clinching interception with 1:09 to play after Cashmere drove into Seton territory.
