After an almost even first half and a scoreless third quarter the Highlanders fell to the Yellow Jackets with a final score of 28-12.

It will be another road trip Friday night for the Bartow Yellow Jackets, the last bus ride before ending the season at home next week. The route to the game will be very similar to last week’s path to Haines City, but this time the destination is Ridge.

You have to go back to 2010 to find the last time Bartow traveled to Ridge. It was a stormy night that delayed the game to the point that many fans left, thinking the game was called. Officials waited out the weather and called the teams back with Bartow putting up a frantic comeback effort to fall just a touchdown short. In 2009, Bartow beat Ridge in what was then a district game at Bartow Memorial Stadium.
