NORTH PORT — In the fourth battle between North Port and Riverdale High this season, the Raiders had just enough to edge the Bobcats, 56-55, in a Class 8A-Region 3 semifinal Tuesday night.

In a back-and-forth contest, the Raiders made the plays down the stretch to end North Port’s season one game short of the regional finals.

But Via missed the first of three free throws, then made the final two, leaving North Port one point short.
