Sometimes it's the team that can afford to lay down that plays the hardest. Estero finished the regular season with a 45-28 win over Bishop Verot on Friday night, but in the first half, it was the Vikings who looked more like a playoff team. "I think a good percentage of our team decided not to show up tonight, thinking that Bishop Verot was going to lay down," Estero coach Rich Dombroski said. The Wildcats (8-2) are going to the playoffs, and they seemed to have been looking ahead to next Friday's contest with Immokalee. The Vikings (1-9) played like they wanted to end a horrible season on a positive note. "I'm very proud of our kids," Bishop Verot coach Phil Dorn said. "The one thing they did all year was stay together as a team, even through all the unbelievable things they went through in terms of the injuries and the frustrations and the losses." Imperfect as the game was, the Wildcats did bring their potent offense. Phillips threw for 223 passing yards and two touchdowns. McFadden rushed for 155 yards and caught four passes for 96 yards. Bishop Verot quarterback Quinn Farrell went 10-for-13 for 128 yards. Oceant-Kelly caught 114 yards worth of passes and Krispinsky rushed for 71 yards.
