Copper Basin News

The Ray Bearcats traveled to Pima last Friday night looking to hand second-ranked Pima its second straight loss of the season in a matchup of two top ten teams in Division VI. The Bearcats entered the contest ranked sixth, according to rankings released by the Arizona Republic. Pima proved why it was ranked so highly despite an 0 – 1 record heading into the game, defeating the Bearcats, 50 – 25. The Roughriders were coming off a loss against top-ranked Bagdad in week zero.

Including last season’s 57 – 6 playoff loss to Gilbert Christian, the Bearcats have now allowed 50 points or more in consecutive games. The loss dropped the Bearcats to tenth in the most recent rankings.

They’ll try to get into the win column this week in the home opener versus Valley Union. The game is scheduled for 7:00 p.m.
