Bob Ryan Blog – Week 3 – THE BEST GAMES YOU MISSED THIS WEEKEND IN MISSOURI

THE BEST GAMES YOU MISSED THIS WEEKEND IN MISSOURI

The best games aren’t always between the best teams….

Blue Springs South (2-1) 27 – Raymore-Peculiar (1-2) 24 (2 OT)

Briley Moore-McKinney (BSS), playing in his first Varsity game, caught the winning pass on a 4th down & l0 from the 25 yd line from Colton Pogue in the 2nd overtime as the Jaguars outlasted the Panthers. Ray-Pec had tied the game with only 1:16 remaining in the game to cap off a magnificent 12 play drive capped off by Isaiah Truss’ 14 yard gallop. A game winning 32 yard FG attempt with only 11 seconds left went wide for the Jags. In the 2nd OT, James Sappington hit a 42 yard FG to give Ray-Pec a short-lived 24-21 lead. Moore-Mckinney’s catch came on a post pattern that worked to perfection ended this thriller.

Camdenton (3-0) 20 – Lebanon (2-1) 17

In the battle for the HWY 5 Trophy (which is in its 2nd year) a battle between two 2-0 teams was outstanding. Lebanon jumped out to a 14-0 on their first 2 possessions and still led 17-6 at halftime. Josh Martin’s 63 yard run in the 3rd Quarter seemed to turn the tide for Camdenton. QB Bo Dean, a transfer from Osage this year, hit his first eight passes and finished the night with a 13 of 17, 159 yard passing performance.

Timberland (3-0) 20 – Holt (0-3) 19

Most observers didn’t expect this type of game. Timberland had not allowed a point in the first two weeks while the Holt Indians had been handled 45-0 by Howell and 30-15 by Hickman. But…don’t count your chickens…Coach Ken Moore had his Holt team all fired up in front of a tremendous crowd, estimated at 11,000 people. Holt jumped out to a 13-0 lead on two TD strikes from Emilio Monsivias. He hit Jake Koons with an 18 yard toss in the 1st quarter and Darren Love with a long 74 yard dagger in the 2nd. The Wolves scored later in the 2nd quarter to make it 13-7 at half. The Wolves defense took over! They recovered two key fumbles in the 3rd quarter.  One was a score by Connor Bomstad the other led to a short drive and Timberland took a 20-13 lead. When Jake Thompson scored late in the 3rd quarter for the Indians, the kick failed. Neither team scored in the frantic final quarter. Timberland snapped a 3 year losing streak to Holt with the win.

Lee Summit (3-0) 31 – Park Hill (1-2) 26

The Tigers jumped out to a 7-0 lead on a 68 yard punt return by Spratt DeShon. Park Hill’s Trojans scored the next 19 points to take a 19-7 lead! Lee Summit answered by scoring 24 unanswered points on their way to the victory. The Tigers were led by QB Drew Lock who was 16 of 36 passing for 258 yards, 1 td and no interceptions.

Scott City 33 – East Prairie 27    — OT

The Rams of Scott City fought back from a 27-13 halftime deficit to pull out an overtime victory over the East Prairie Eagles. Both clubs play many youthful players and the inexperience of both sides kept fans of both sides on the edge of their seats.  Braden Cox scored the winning TD for the Rams on a naked bootleg! Leading the way on the ground for the Eagles was Blayn Goodding 9 carries for 93 and for Scott City the top gainer on the ground was Gordy Bradley who had 31 carries for 123 yards.

North Kansas City (2-1) 34 – Raytown (0-3) 31

Another high scoring game for the NKC Hornets in the 3rd consecutive week as the Hornets rallied to beat Raytown. KCN now averages 41 ppg. NKC saw Raytown score the first 24 points of the game!  Led by QB Bryce Graskemper, who scored three touchdowns and threw for two more scores, the Hornets scored the last 27 points of the game to notch the victory. Graskempter was 14 of 26 for 160 yards for the night.
