Arcola met Argenta-Oreana Friday night in a battle of top 20 rated teams in class 1A.

Argenta-Oreana started the scoring with a three yard run, but a failed two point conversion gave the 13th ranked team an early 6-0 lead.
A back and forth game was decided in the forth quarter with an Argenta-Oreana touchdown run to give the Bombers a 28-14 win over Arcola to stay undefeated.
An 11 yard run from Conner Strader and a Cortez kick gave Arcola the lead in the game 7-6, but not for long. A 70 yard pass and a successful two point conversion gave Argenta the 14-7 lead at the end of the first quarter.
More back and forth in the second quarter as a Mendoza one yard run tied the game at 14-14 in the second quarter.
Another long pass from Ulrey though gave Argenta the lead right back, 20-14, heading into halftime.
The second half was a much more defensive battle as nobody put any points up in the third quarter so Argenta-Oreana led Arcola by six heading into the final quarter.
