Leon Miles rushed for a 13-yard touchdown with 2:08 remaining to give the visiting Thunder the lead, and helped finalize a dramatic victory over San Ramon Valley.

Buhach Colony (1-0) squandered a 21-0 lead when the Wolves stormed back with 24 unanswered points. Matt Turner's 10-yard touchdown reception from Cameron Birse capped an impressive Wolves drive to give them their first lead of the night at 24-21 with 6:56 remaining. But the Wolves were unable to stop the dynamic Thunder rushing offense, which ran for 336 yards on the evening.

What may have ultimately cost San Ramon Valley (0-1) the game, however, were two early turnovers in the first quarter. The Wolves lost two fumbles on their first five offensive plays and Buhach Colony capitalized with touchdowns on each occasion.

Wolves running back Marcus De La Pena had an impressive 97-yard touchdown run and ended up with 167 rushing yards on just 14 carries. Birse threw for 179 yards, two touchdowns and one interception while completing 23 of his 36 attempts.
