Rafael Bauman returned the ensuing kickoff 86 yards for a touchdown with 2:22 left, sending Hudson’s Bay with a 28-24 win over Ridgefield in a 2A Greater St. Helens League game on Saturday.
Bauman’s return came after Ridgefield took a 24-21 lead on Brandon Rogers’ 22-yard field goal.
“After they kicked that field, my coach says the most important play is the next play,” Bauman said. “So I just had to flush that, and try to get it back, and we did.”
The win improved Bay to 4-0 on the season for the first time since 2001. The Eagles also are the only 2-0 team in the 2A GSHL.
