The No. 6-ranked Ray football team outscored visiting NFL Yet Academy in the second half of last Friday night’s game on its way to a come-from-behind 34 – 28 victory.
Trailing 20 – 14 at halftime, the Bearcats outscored the Eagles 20 – 8 in the second half, including 12 unanswered points in the decisive fourth quarter.
The loss was a blow to the playoff hopes of the Eagles, who entered the game ranked No. 16. They figure to drop a few spots when the new rankings are released. The top 12 teams qualify for the playoffs, with the top four earning first-round byes.
The Cats visit No. 8 Hayden this Friday on the Lobos’ Senior Night.
The Lobos could very well be playing for a playoff berth after a loss at No. 10 Ft Thomas last Friday night.
Friday’s kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.
