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.
