Reid Herchenbach threw for two touchdowns and Garrett Turner ran for two Saturday, pacing the Merced College football team to a 32-27 victory over host Sacramento City College.
Merced improved to 4-5 overall and 3-1 in the Mid-Empire Conference. Sac City is 4-5 and 2-2.
Turner's 5-yard TD run in the fourth quarter gave the Blue Devils a 32-20 lead, enough to survive a subsequent 86-yard kickoff return that accounted for the hosts' final points.
Turner earlier scored on a 2-yard run. Herchenbach's scoring passes went for 38 yards to Marq McIntyre and 20 yards to Cameron Graham.
Never miss a local story.
Merced bounced back from last Saturday's a 30-21 loss to College of the Siskiyous, its only league loss.
The Blue Devils conclude league play next Saturday with a 1 p.m. home game against Laney.
