Lely 28, Ida Baker 26: A valiant fourth-quarter comeback wasn’t quite enough to get the Bulldogs into the next round of the Class 6A playoffs. Down 28-13 with less than eight minutes to play, Ida Baker got big contributions from its defense, special teams and offense to take the game down to the wire. Colin Army recovered a Lely fumble and scored with 3:15 to go, although a two-point conversion attempt failed. The Bulldogs then recovered an onsides kick, setting up Eric Swanson’s 40-yard TD pass to Sebastian Grafmyre with 2:53 remaining. Army’s fumble recovery TD was the Bulldogs’ second of the game. Angel Alverio took a Trojans fumble 3 yards for Baker. Swanson had an 86-yard pass and run to Bo Summersett for the Bulldogs’ first score. Lely’s first score of the second half, a safety, wound up providing the Trojans with their two-point margin.

Naples had a 10-7 lead at halftime, and salted the game away with a TD in the final minute.
Estero 19,Cape Coral 7: The Seahawks’ defense held Estero to 13 points, but the offense would manage only Karim Babernitch’s 7-yard run with 3:33 to play.
