With 1:40 to play, University City trailed The Bishop’s School of La Jolla for the first time in the game Sept. 23.

But Dreyden Garner raced 78 yards with a pass from backup quarterback Quentyn Demara to the end zone to regain the lead for good as the Centurions rallied for a 49-46 victory over the Knights.

Bishop’s (3-2) had one last gasp, but a bad snap on the game’s final play doomed a 46-yard field goal try to tie it.

University City (3-2) blew a 21-0 first-quarter lead and Bishop’s took its first lead of the night on a 1-yard run by quarterback William Fierro with 1:40 left.

Fierro ran for three touchdowns in the game and passed for two others.

Xavier Rodriguez returned a kickoff 96 yards for a touchdown for the Knights.
