E.J. Harris rushed for a pair of fourth quarter touchdowns Friday night at Sunset Chev Stadium, but Bonney Lake’s rally fell just short as Auburn Mountainview hung on to beat the Panthers 30-26 Friday night at Sunset Chev Stadium.

The Lions got on the board first with a 60-yard touchdown pass int he first quarter, followed by an interception off Bonney Lake quarterback Chris Brown returned 83 yards for a touchdown to make the score 14-0.

Bonney Lake climbed back into the game when Brown connected with Robert Combs for a 29-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter, followed by a four-yard Harris run in the second to knot the game at 14 headed into the half.

The third quarter belonged to Auburn Mountainview, however. A three-yard run with a missed extra point, followed by a 35-yard field goal and a 65-yard touchdown pass gave the Lions a 30-14 lead as the teams entered the final quarter.

And though Harris was able to punch in two more scoring drives, a failed 2-point conversion and a missed point-after left the Panthers just short of the win in their final regular-season game.

The loss drops the Panthers to final record of 3-6 overall and 2-3 in the South Puget Sound League 3A.
