the Colts slipped last year to 4-6
after their 2nd
Place finish in 2007(lost to Lee
Summit West for title).
Beating SLUH by

Conference (see below)
Hazelwood West (2-0) 35
The Huskies scored first but the
dominating Wildcat ground game (300+ yards) took over in mid-2nd
quarter to win going away. The defending Sub North co-champs
aren't going away in 2009. Listen to complete replay of this
Haz West vs Ritenour
Owensville(1-1) 51 Blair Oaks
The Falcons who finished in 2nd place
in class 2 last year were swamped by the Dutchmen with a score
that has the Four Rivers buzzing.
Hazelwood Central(2-0) 31 Rock
All of you who were getting out the
shovel to bury the Hawks after they barely escaped the U CIty
Lions in week 1, put it away. The Hawks shut down the big run
game of the Bruins to win easily.
Liberty (2-0) 42
Ray-Pec (1-1) 6 (#1 class 5 school last week!!)
Winning for the 2nd consecutive week
by the identical score, the Bluejays will make that district
with Blue Springs and Blue Springs South even tougher this year.
Parkway North (2-0) 27 U
U City dropped a very tight game to
Haz Cen in week one demonstrating their ability. Coach Bob
Bunton's Vikings have outscored their opponents 77-0 during the
first two weeks of the season (more on Suburban South)
not over, til it's over games...
Oakville(2-0) was trailing a fired up
Mehlville team 19-6 at the 7:38 mark of final quarter when the
Panthers scored. The Tigers went to work and pulled out a
thrilling 22-19 win with only 18 seconds left when Paul Taylor
scored his 3rd TD of the night.
Behind Dalton Hewitt's prodigious
passing yards, the Vianney Golden Griffins held 28-7
halftime lead against Howell Central. Central scored the next 4
touchdowns of the game in the 3rd & early 4th quarter to take
the lead 35-28. Vianney seemed to regain the momentum when
Hewitt hit Matt Grimes for tying score at 5:54.
However...Central's Chad Denny split the uprights from 22 yards
for the game winner with only 27 ticks left. Hewitt finished
with 403 yards in the losing effort.
Tough Luck City...
Putnam County Midgets have lost both
of their games by the same 7-6 score and now stand 0-2 in the
Tri-County standings! ugh...
Rumblings at the
top...looking at some other top ranked MO teams..
Hannibal (#8, class 4 school, 1-1) was
dropped by Harrisonville(1-1) 21-2. 8 turnovers during a game
that constantly had rain ranging from drizzle to hard downpours
plagued the Pirates.
Jefferson City (2-0, class 6 #3 rank)
pummeled Springdale, Ark 47-21. The Jays have now scored 91
points in their first two games.
Mountian Grove (Class 3, #4,2-0)
knocked of Thayer (Class 1, #3) 35-9 as each program schedules
early tough opponents. Mt Grove takes on Mountain-View Liberty
(2-0) to continue their tough early challenges.
Ft Osage (Class 5 #3) topples Kearney
(Class 4 #3) 13-7 in action on western side of the state. The
Indians stopped the Bulldogs, who were first and goal, by
stripping the ball carrier of the ball and recovering the game
saving fumble late in the game.
Snapping the streak...
Portageville ended its 32 game losing
streak by white-washing the Scott City Rams 35-0 on Friday.
First year Bulldog coach Jim May has high hopes for more wins
this year since his team only has 3 seniors.
For the first time in 17 years, the
Van-Far Indians own a 2-0 mark after two games. The Indians
swamped MO Military Academy 44-15 as Scott Brooksheir led the
way by rushing for 255 yards and 2 TD's.

38-0 and handed East its 2nd straight loss of the season (East
lost to CBC last week). East will now face their fellow 08 state
Champion, Hazelwood Central next week so these Spartans are
facing a possible 0-3 start as defending state champ!
