River Wars Football in SOCO

Kyle Luetters Screen Shot 2014-09-03 at 1.07.32 PMKody Stricklin Announcer PicThe first weekend in October brings about week number seven of prep football in the state of Missouri. Coming into the latest edition of action under the lights of Friday night is a match-up between two teams looking to gain traction.

The Oakville Tigers will take on the Seckman Jaguars at 7:00 p.m. with Oakville as the home team. The Tigers are coming off a tough loss at Layfette (42-13) and will depend on quarterback Carvon Robinson for success. The 5’11 senior has been the focal point of the Tigers offense as he has contributed five touchdowns through the air and five on the ground. With that level of production, Jaguar coach Jeff Taylor and his staff will have to come up with some way to stop the red hot quaterback.

Speaking of the Jaguars, they are coming off of their first win of the season, a 21-7 victory over Northwest Cedar Hill. Joe Ambrose has continued to carry the load offensively for Seckman as the Junior tailback is closing in 600 yards for the season. Watch for Ambrose to be the highlight of the Jaguar attack.

Around the State of MO Football Week 6

Bob-RyanTwo Top Ten, Class 6 teams battle to a one point game—

Each year, you can count some things to be true in MO. HS Football. Two of those things are that the Blue Springs and Rockhurst teams will be good—very good. Last night’s battle between the two of the titans of Class 6 football resulted in a 14-13 Hawklet victory. The Wildcats (#3 ranked, Class 6)dominated the first quarter and led 13-0 but Rockhurst, led by TJ Green-son of Trent Green (former Chief QB), Rockhurst (#5, class 6) took advantage of some Wildcat special team miscues and a stout 2nd half defenses to chalk up the win. More than likely, this is only chapter 1 of the 2014 games between these 2 teams.

Was this a season total of carries?

Sean Chambers of Fox HS carried the ball 45 times for 192 hard earned yards in a 28-7 victory over the Mehlville Panthers. WOW-45 times—I bet he slept well last night … Click here for the REPlay …

2nd time is a charm!

Park Hill South had been down this road previously. In their last home game, the Panthers got the ball late in the game with a chance to win. It didn’t work out. This time, the Panthers drove it into the end zone with only 43 seconds remaining in the game to edge the Truman Patriots 21-20.

Games that kept you on the edge of your seat!

…In a game that went down to the final buzzer, Joplin outlasts Waynesville 49-48. Remarkably, Skyler Duley scored ALL SEVEN Eagle TD’s! He started the game by returning a KO to the house and scored in the last 34 seconds to give Joplin the one point lead. The Tigers final FG attempt as time expired from 43 yards out fell short. Joplin scored the last 14 points of the game to push this result into the victory column!

….on the last play of the game, Carthage QB Alex Derryberry was forced out of the pocket, scrambled and was looking for someone, anyone who was open. He found Ralston Schramm in the end zone and the Tigers defeated Republic 40-35. Republic had taken the lead on a fake extra point as the holder ran it in for 2 points to grab a short-lived 35-34 lead with only 1:20 left in the game. The final drive saw Derryberry hit on six consecutive passes! The homecoming theme of “a Night to Remember” could not have been more appropriate.

….Overtimes are really exciting- 2-OT even better. St Clair won their 1st game of the year in the 2-OT in a game that had 112 points scored!! In the 2-OT, QB Collin Scott scored on the 2 point conversion and the Bulldog defense deflected a St. James (3-3) pass attempt to tie the game. St Clair 57 St James 55

….Shut out the League

CBC (6-0) rolled past De Smet 60-0 for their 3rd consecutive conference win in the MCC. The Cadets have won by an aggregate score of 167-0 in the 3 games. SLUH is up next in their final conference game. The Jr Billikens are 4-1 after beating Parkway South 44-0.  Click here for the REPlay …

…Rival Game

…Lee Summit (4-2), ranked #8 in Class 6, knocked the top ranked Titans of Lee Summit West (5-1) from the ranks of the unbeaten with a 44-38 win in a Suburban Gold Conference game. The Tigers jumped out in front 20-9 at half. LSW kept challenging! They cut the lead to just 3 points twice, 34-31, 41-38 but the Tigers continued to meet the challenge with scores of their own. Lee Summit rode the 299 passing yards of Drew Lock to the impressive win.

….Showing their Stuff

East Buchanon (6-0), ranked #4 class 2, really solidified their ranking as they handled the always tough, Lawson Cardinals (#12, Class 2) 40-0.

Northwest Football Starts League Play

Kody Stricklin Announcer PicAs we reach the midway point of the high school football, this week we find the Oakville Tigers traveling to Northwest to take on the Lions. Both programs come into this match up 1-3, but experiencing different results a week ago.

Last week, the Oakville Tigers earned their first win of the season, defeating the Fox Warriors, 21-14.   Oakville’s balanced attack proved to be too much for the Warriors. The Lions will look to slowdown Oakville’s dual threat quarterback, senior, Carvon Robinson. Robinson shredded the Warriors defense for 224 yards and 2 touchdowns in the air, while gaining 114 yards on the ground and adding the game winning 22 yard touchdown run with less than two minutes to go to seal the win for the Tigers.  Click here for the replay …

The Lions record, however, took a hit on Homecoming as they lost 40-0 to the #5 Rebels of Park Hills Central*.  Click here for the replay …   The Lions had a hard time getting anything going against the physical front seven of the Rebels. One week after gaining 371 rushing yards in a victory, the Lions were only able to muster 52 rushing yards and only 141 total yards. A bright spot for the Lions was the play of senior linebacker, Minor Jones. Jones had 13 total tackles, a forced fumble, and was constantly fighting off double teams to be in on almost every stop for the Lions.
