Rison survives Gurdon’s upset bid

RISON — Using a 23-play, 93-yard touchdown drive, that started on the last play of the third quarter and ended with a 5-yard TD plunge by Chris Leaks on fourth down with 1:44 to go in the game, lifted the Rison Wildcats to a 26-21 victory over the Gurdon Go-Devils in the second round of the Class 2A state playoffs Friday night at Wildcat Field.

Wildcats pull away from pesky Bears

WOODLAWN — A time-consuming drive that ended with a touchdown on the final play of the first quarter pulled Woodlawn with two points of Rison on a rainy Friday night at the Carl Jones Sports Complex. After that, though, the game belonged to the Wildcats as they pulled away to down the gritty Bears, 41-6, in the regular season finale.

Wildcats can’t complete comeback against Cardinals

A highly competitive football game between the Watson Chapel Wildcats (4-6) and the Camden Fairview Cardinals (5-5) was expected, and both teams delivered. A third place finish in the 5A South conference, and a number three seed in the playoffs was at stake. No matter the outcome, both teams were already guaranteed a playoff spot, so this game was merely for positioning. This game still meant a lot to both teams as they were looking to head into the playoffs on the right foot. Watson Chapel got off to a slow start, and Camden was able to outlast the Wildcats and win by a score of 35-28.
