It’s coming down to the wire for fall sports at Citrus. The seven active teams only have a total of eight home games remaining, and several are gearing up for the postseason.

Football was unable to build on their momentum from a 50-17 victory over College after a 21-18 overtime loss against Riverside Community College on Oct. 20.

In a game that had more twists and turns than Troy Polomalu’s hair, Citrus fell behind 18-12 on a RCC 68-yard punt return by Garrett Biggers with 1:53 to go. Quarterback Bernard Porter then drove 68 yards of his own to find wide receiver Josh Jones for a TD that would tie the game, but Isaiah Kepley would miss the extra point. RCC would kick a field goal on their first possession of overtime to win it.
