The Anderson Redskins kept their playoff hopes alive with a come-from behind victory over the Harrison Wildcats, 28-14.
Anderson (8-2, 4-1) trailed by four points entering the fourth quarter, but scored the contest's final 18 points to secure a much needed win. The team entered the week ranked ninth in the latest Harbin Rankings for Region 4 and now must wait until the OHSAA releases the playoff pairings on Sunday to see if they are going to make the postseason. The last time the school sat out of November was 2006.
Running back Jake Nelson had a big Senior Night for the Redskins, finishing with 140 yards and three touchdowns on 30 carries. Two of his touchdowns came in the final 12 minutes to help Anderson put the game away.
Harrison (5-5, 1-4) started the week ranked sixth in the Division II, Region 8 Harbin Rankings. However, a loss likely means they will slip down and possibly out of the rankings altogether.
Quarterback Marcus Woelfel ran for both of the Wildcats' scores, but struggled to move the ball through the air. The junior completed just 11 of his 19 passes for 73 yards. Running back Zach Lonneman tallied 120 yards on 35 carries in the loss.
