So far, so good for the Resurrection Christian football team in its move up to Class 2A.

The Cougars moved to 3-0 Saturday with a 24-22 win at No. 8 Platte Valley.

RCS is ranked No. 2 in 2A and all three nonconference wins have come against teams ranked or receiving votes.

RCS jumped out to an early lead Saturday before Platte Valley (1-2) tied the game at 15-15 in the second quarter. RCS scored late in the half to take a 21-15 lead.

Platte Valley struck toward the end of the third to take a 22-21 lead, but an RCS field goal gave the Cougars a two-point lead heading to the fourth quarter.

The Cougars defense was able to make that lead hold up in a scoreless fourth quarter.
