Chargers rally behind McLin’s four scores

Shane McLin rushed for 184 yards and four touchdowns Saturday, leading Clark back from a 20-0 deficit, as the Chargers topped visiting Sierra Vista, 24-20.

McLin’s 30-yard run with 9 minutes, 20 seconds remaining gave the Chargers (2-3, 2-3 Southwest) the lead. The touchdown came two plays after Devonte Taylor made his second fumble recovery at the Clark 35.

McLin, who had 24 carries, also scored on runs of 1, 1, and 10 yards. He gained 156 yards in the second half, when Clark outgained the Lions 200-98.

Trailing 20-6, the Chargers opened the second half with a six-play, 65 yard drive — all runs by McLin — capped by his second 1-yard touchdown. Sierra Vista (1-3, 1-4) fumbled the ensuing kickoff, recovered by the Chargers’ Alex Yoder, and McLin ran in from 10 yards eight plays later.

Sierra Vista used big plays to seize the early lead, with Mike Dominique returning the opening kickoff 86 yards and Taz Wilson connecting with Matt Murphy on an 84-yard pass play in the second quarter.
Justin Green had 82 yards on 18 carries, including an 8-yard touchdown, for the Mountain Lions.
