VALLEY HEAD — The Phillips Bears suffered a season ending loss against the Valley Head Tigers away from home on Friday night, ending their season after just one round of playoff football.
Valley Head opened the scoring with two touchdowns in the first quarter, leaving Phillips with a mountain to climb early on in the game.
Valley Head scored 28 more points in the second quarter, but Phillips was able to respond with a touchdown of their own before the half.
With much to do in the second half of the game, Phillips was able to score another touchdown and a two point conversion.
This, however, was met with yet another 19 points being added on by the hosts in the third quarter.
Phillips closed out the game with a touchdown, but having only scored 20 points to Valley Head’s 61, their playoff run had come to an end.
Phillips’ season ends with an overall record of 6-4 for the year.
