Ranburne 33, Woodland 27, 2 OT

Ranburne’s defense stepped up in the second overtime, coming up with a big sack on third down and an interception on fourth down that set up Dylan Wiggins’ game-winning, 5-yard touchdown pass to Kyle Lovvorn.

The Bulldogs (6-0) jumped out to a 14-point lead early after an 18-yard touchdown run from Dylan Tullis and a 66-yard completion from Wiggins to Lovvorn.

Woodland scored late in the first half to make the halftime score 14-7 on John Wes Adcock's 15-yard run. The Bobcats outscored Ranburne 14-0 in the third quarter to take a 21-14 lead into the fourth. Adcock added a 5-yard scoring run, and Justus Herring scored on a 1-yard rush.

Wiggins hit Brayden Wilson for a 39-yard touchdown pass on Ranburne’s first drive of the fourth, and the two sides were deadlocked 21-21 after regulation.

In the first overtime, Wiggins found Tullis for a 5-yard touchdown on fourth down. Woodland blocked Ranburne’s extra point. The Bobcats scored to tie the game, but its extra-point attempt was also unsuccessful after a high snap led to a sack.

Weaver 49, Cleveland 28

The Bearcats outlasted Cleveland by scoring late touchdowns late to extend its seven-point halftime lead.

After the two team traded touchdowns to start the game, Weaver separated itself before Cleveland added a score within a minute of halftime.

The Bearcats (3-3) came out in the second half a new time, scoring behind the play of Chris Arnold, who finished the game with two scores and 175 yards rushing. Paul Hubbard also fielded the attack with 110 yards rushing and two touchdowns of his own.

Weaver’s offense racked up points in the second half, including a 65-yard touchdown run from Delo Forbes and 7-yard touchdown pass from Timothy Hawkins to Austin Jennings.

But the defense also stepped up. Brandon Smith shined at defensive back, recording two interceptions. He added a rushing score on offense.
