SALEM — North Medford failed to pull off another fourth-quarter comeback and suffered a 36-30 nonconference road loss to the McKay Royal Scots Friday.
Juan Ochoa capped a big night with a 2-yard touchdown run with 12 seconds remaining to provide McKay with it's second straight victory to open season.
In its opener last Friday, the Black Tornado scored 16 points in the final period to rally for a 16-15 victory over McNary.
Against McKay, North scored 15 unanswered points to knot the score 30-all on 12-yard pass from quarterback Troy Fowler to Nick Janakes with 3:33 remaining in the game. Kolby Talbert's interception at the Scots' 35 set up the tying score.
