Jordan Gaines caught seven passes for 181 yards and four touchdowns as the Harvest Prep football team overcame an early 14-0 deficit to defeat Grandview Heights 42-14 on Friday.

"I think (Gaines) is a Division I (college) player," said Warriors coach Jack Johnson, whose team finished 6-4 overall and 4-3 in the MSL-Cardinal Division. "He's as good as any player I've had."

The Bobcats - who also finished 6-4 and 4-3 - used a ball-control offense to take the early lead on touchdown runs by Eric Van Deusen (15 yards) and Jason Franks (2 yards).

After Taimere Fambro's 68-yard touchdown run brought Harvest Prep within a touchdown, defensive lineman Anthony Ford recovered a Grandview fumble giving the Warriors the ball at their own 47.

Gaines caught a 53-yard scoring pass from quarterback Brandon Ross on the next play to tie the score at 14 at halftime.

"The kids just decided to play," Johnson said. "That first quarter was awful. That's not the way we play the game and they realized we could step it up in the second quarter."

The Bobcats lost three more fumbles in the second half, and the Warriors took advantage of the miscues to pull away.

"You've got to take care of the football," Grandview coach Jason Peters said. "When we turned the ball over, they converted them into points."

Ross completed 12 of 18 passes for 257 yards and five touchdowns for the Warriors. Gaines also had scoring catches of 30, 38 and 47 yards, while Zach Yousey added a 31-yard touchdown reception.

Fambro finished with 104 yards rushing on 15 carries.

For the Bobcats, Van Deusen ran for 134 yards on 12 carries, while Franks had 93 yards on 27 attempts.
