R-S Central (3-3, 1-2) did a lot of good things and stuck around with Crest, but fell 23-14 on the road. While the Hilltoppers did give up over 350 yards to Crest, they did a good job of buckling down, allowing them to score just four times. Penalties and two key fumbles were factors in what could have produced a possible upset. R-S Central has the week off but will host Chase on 10/7/16
