Things weren't going well for Madison (San Diego) in the California State Division III Championship on Saturday.

Coles eventually scooped up the loose ball and scrambled to the left, retreating even farther toward his own end zone. As he approached the sidelines, Coles let a high-arcing pass go. The ball settled into the arms of Lee Walker, who scored to cut the Marin Catholic lead to 21-7. The improbable touchdown was part of a 31-0 Marin Catholic run in the Warhawks' 38-35 win.
