The logjam atop the DuPage Valley Conference got a little less congested Friday.

Neuqua Valley (5-1, 4-1 in the DuPage Valley) scored on four consecutive possessions to build a 25-6 lead, and Stephen Ruiz hit field goals of 37, 45 and a school-record 50 yards as the Wildcats hung on to beat Naperville North 31-28 in a DVC showdown Friday in southern Naperville.

“We felt real good about the way we were doing things in the first half, made a few adjustments at halftime and in the second half came out and scored right away,” Neuqua Valley coach Bill Ellinghaus said. “Then we kind of went flat.
