Connor Leavens found the end zone from 5-yards out with less than 30 seconds left in the game to propel Marana to a 28-21 win over Kellis High School in the first round of the 5A state playoffs.

The Tigers led most of the way, but saw the Cougars tie the game with just over 2:30 to play. Leavens helped lead the Tigers to a 76-yard with both his legs and arm. After completing his first two passes, the Tigers drew a pass interference call and then Leavens took off running for a 20-yard gain to give Marana first and goal just inside the 10-yard line.

Three plays later he scored.

Kellis had all three timeouts and moved the ball into Marana territory but the game ended on an Andrew Smith interception inside the Marana 10-yard line.

Marana will play No. 2 Williams Field next week in the Phoenix area.

Mesquite 21, Mountain View 19

Mountain View scored a touchdown with 1:01 left in the game but a failed two-point conversion prevented them from winning.

The Mountain Lions attempted an on-sides kick but Mesquite recovered and ran out the clock.

Ironwood Ridge 50, Flowing Wells 20

The host Nighthawks outscored Flowing Wells 29-6 in the second half and earned the first round playoff win over the Caballeros.

The Nighthawks will host Queen Creek next week. The Bulldogs beat Ironwood Ridge earlier this year. 

Salpointe 10, CDO 6
