Jonny Carter returns the kickoff out to the Aledo 47 yard line. One first down later, the Raider defense forces a Bearcat quick kick from a running formation.
Raiders will start at their own 20 yard line. The Raiders make two first downs before they have to punt the ball back to the Bearcats.
A penalty on the punting team gives Aledo the ball at the Raiders 48 yard line. A Pate Davis to Quanel Williams pass gives the Bearcats a first down at the Raiders 32. Davis to Baker Roberson for another first down at the 13 when a fumble is recovered by the Raiders.
The Raiders work from their own 15 yard line. One first down is all the Bearcat defense will allow, and the Bearcats will have the ball at their own 20 yard line after the punt.
Pate Davis, then Jess Anders carry the ball for another Aledo first down, Davis is tackled for a loss, then carries for 15 yards on the next two carries. Bearcats first down at the Raiders 35 yard line. Jess Anders for 13 yards to the 21 and another Aledo first down.
A fourth down conversion fails and the Raiders take over on downs at their 14 yard line. A Raider fumble is recovered at the 9 yard line.
The Bearcats only need one play, a 9 yard run by Caleb Frysinger off the left side for a Bearcat touchdown. 7-0 Bearcats.
The Raiders are unable to make a first down. Aledo's defense is finding their rythm. Aledo gets the ball at their own 46 after the Raiders are forced to punt.
Southwest is a very talented team, on both sides of the ball, their defense stiffens and Aledo is forced to try a fourth down conversion, and the Raiders will get the ball back at their 28.
Aledo is again up to the task, and the Raiders have to punt the ball back to the Bearcats, who will take over at their own 44 yard line. They make a first down at the Raiders 46 yard line on a Caleb Frysinger 5 yard run.
Aledo's offensive line has been solid all year. The Raiders are making them work hard for each yard they are getting tonight, tough yards.
A Pate Davis to Taco Anderson pass for 14 yards gets another first down at the Raiders 20 yard line. Davis to Quanel Williams moves the ball to the 11 yard line. Pate is sacked with 18 seconds left in the half, and the Bearcats call a time out. Pate Davis to John Whatley gets the ball back to the Raiders 11 with 9 seconds to go and Aledo uses their last time out. Chance Nevarez' Field Goal is good, and Aledo's lead is 10-0.
A fumble by the Raiders on the second half kickoff is recovered by the Bearcats at the Raiders 9 yard line.
Daythan Davis scores on a run off the left side and the Bearcats lead 17-0 after the PAT.
A big play by the Raiders takes the ball deep into Bearcat territory, but a fumble on the next play is recovered by the Bearcats at their own 30 yard line.
2 plays later, Aledo scores on a Pate Davis to John Whatley pass. 24-0 Aledo after the PAT.
The Raiders are moving the ball down the field until a Clayton Lowe interception at the Bearcat 13 yard line gets the ball back for Aledo.
Southwest has success moving the ball, but a fourth down attempt comes up just a bit short, thanks to a great stop by Tyson Mauser, to get the Bearcats the ball back in Raider territory on downs.
Pate Davis goes outside right for a first down. Jess Anders up the middle for another.
The Raider defense stops a fourth down attempt from their 24 yard line and they will take over on downs from there. One play is all it takes for the Raiders to score on a 76 yard pass play. the 2 point conversion is goos. 24-8 aledo in the fourth quarter.
The ensuing kickoff rolls into the end zone. Aledo works from their own 25 yard line. Pate Davis to Taco Anderson for 12 yards and another Aledo first down.
Again, the Raider defense holds, and the Bearcats punt the ball back to the Raiders. A penalty on the punt will give the Raiders good field position at the Southwest 40 yard line.
They move the ball into Bearcat territory, mostly on the legs and arm of #3, Robbie Rhodes, who has been rotating from receiver to quarterback. It's easy to see why he is s highly sought after recruit. They move the ball all the way down to the Bearcat 5 yard line, but they can't get points, as the Aledo defense puts a great series together to take the ball back on downs.
The Bearcats pick up a first down, then another. Time will run out with the final score 24-8.
Good night from Bearcat Stadium in Aledo.
