The Walnut Ridge Bobcats greatly enhanced their playoff chances with a thrilling 27-26 win over the McCrory Jaguars on Friday night at Sexton Field. The Bobcats now stand at 2-5 overall, but are 2-1 in 2A-3 conference play. McCrory, who is also battling for a playoff spot, fell to 1-6 overall and 1-2 in the conference.

"This win positions us for an excellent chance to get back in the playoffs. McCrory will have to win out against Marked Tree and Cross County to eliminate us," said Bobcat head coach Larry Treadway.

The Bobcats lit the scoreboard up first on Tyler Meadors' 21-yard touchdown pass to Bennett Dudley to give the Bobcats a 6-0 lead with 9:09 left in the first quarter.

After McCrory tied the game at 6-6, Meadors scored on a 35-yard run and also added the two-point conversion to put the Bobcats back on top 14-6 with 1:01 left in the opening quarter.

The Jaguars scored again, making the score 14-12 at halftime.
