Jake Raines had dreamed since he was a little kid about having the opportunity that faced him late in his first playoff start as Broken Arrow's quarterback Friday night.
Broken Arrow, trailing by three, needed points on its last drive to keep alive its bid for a second consecutive Class 6AI state title.
Raines led an eight-play, 79-yard march, capped by Sanchez Banks' 3-yard TD run with 39 seconds left to lift No. 5 Broken Arrow past third-ranked Union 35-31 before an estimated 4,500 fans in the quarterfinals at Memorial Stadium.
