Elijah Throckmorton had three touchdowns, including an 85-yard kickoff return in the third quarter to lift Combs to a 38-27 win versus visiting Coronado.
After the Dons (3-7) scored three rushing touchdowns, including two from Christian Delaney, the Coyotes (6-4) were clinging to a one-point lead before Throckmorton ran back the kickoff to start the quarter. Minutes later Throckmorton, who finished with 116 yards, scored again from 11 yards out to give the Coyotes a 35-20 advantage.
After a 63-yard pass from quarterback Christian Bell to Justin Conrad brought Coronado to within eight points, Combs' place kicker Alex Moyes booted a 35-yard field goal to put the game away.
