Ravenswood shaved its deficit to 26-21 with 9:53 left in the game on a 1-yard run by Isaiah Casto, and the Red Devils were on the move again late before Buffalo’s Chase Lovejoy intercepted a pass at his own 40 with one minute left to end the suspense.

Harris caught a pair of scoring passes from Josh Moody of 60 and 25 yards and also scored on a 4-yard run. Buffalo got its first points when Dalton Jones returned the opening kickoff 85 yards for a touchdown. Jones brought back a kickoff 84 yards for a TD last year against Ravenswood.
