Scott City loses third straight game
Scott City's football team used a second half surge to cut Valle Catholic's lead to 16-14 in the fourth quarter Friday night at Scott City, but the Rams came up short for their third straight loss, a 23-14 setback.
The Rams (1-3) trailed 9-0 at halftime before the offense began to click in the second half.
After cutting the lead to 16-14, Scott City kicked an onside kick but touched the ball just before it went the required 10 yards, giving Valle good field position. Valle scored a couple of plays later to finish off the Rams.
"We just clicked a little too late," Rams coach Jackie Johnson said.
Scott City will visit rival Chaffee on Friday.
