Stevens, Dexter pass by Rebels

PARK HILLS -- After a sluggish start the Dexter Bearcats caught fire in the second and third quarters Friday night and held on to defeat Park Hills Central 37-27.

In a rematch of last season's Class 3 sectional game, Dexter scored 37 unanswered points in the second and third quarter, using a strong passing game to scorch the Rebel defense. Senior quarterback Cody Stevens tossed four touchdown passes, including three to fellow senior Tyler Miller, as Dexter took a 37-7 lead going into the fourth quarter.
