The Bears fell into an 18-0 halftime hole against Centennial, and while they did rally in the second half, it was too much to overcome in a 32-17 loss. Coyotes running back Dedrick Young amassed 233 yards and four touchdowns on only 19 carries as Basha drops two places in the top-10 rankings to No. 8.
The Bears got back on track with an easy win over Cesar Chavez. Quarterback Zach Werlinger threw for 271 yards and four touchdowns while receiver Doc O'Connor had 110 yards receiving and two scores. Basha moves up a spot with the victory heading into a tough test on Friday against Pinnacle.
