The Bearcats lost a heartbreaker of a Homecoming game against Marvin Ridge Friday night, with a final score of 24-21.
The Mavericks scored a touchdown on the first kickoff return of the game, but Anson didn’t let the score of 7-0 phase them. The Bearcats fought back and brought the score within three by the fourth quarter, but were unable to capitalize on their final possession of the game. Marvin Ridge intercepted a pass with less than a minute remaining in the game, and sealed the Bearcats’ loss.
The loss brings Anson to a record of 2-7. They will face Porter Ridge at home next Friday night at 7:30 p.m.
