WEMO FB Week 5 by James Damon

damonTornadoes ripping through Cass County truncated scoreboards and bleachers at Cass-Midway, postponing their football game until Saturday evening, and thus, not allowing intended coverage, but the Vikings remained on a roll blasting the Bobcats at the neutral site, 40-0.  Other WEMO action from the week included Osceola bouncing back from back-to-back defeats and keeping Rich Hill win-less with a 42-3 cruising.  Appleton City was the lone non-conference slated game as they visited Greenfield and played some 8-man football.  As is typical, defenses only played for “video game style” as the Bulldogs walloped the Wildcats 68-44 in the pinball action.  The final WEMO game of the week featured an extended lightning delay, but it did not thwart the host Adrian Blackhawks from jumping to an early lead, extending after the delay, and running away with a 38-7 win.
 
The KC Area Game of the Week started over an hour late after a weather-related delay, and then saw one of the classics from around the state as Blue Springs jumped to an early lead, watched Lee’s Summit fight back and gain the lead, and then played back and forth until the Tigers would tie it up late and force OT.  The Wildcats would kick the field goal for the overtime’s lone points and grab their first win of 2015.  Click here for that REPlay …
In one of the premier games around the state, the undefeated Butler Bears hosted the undefeated and #1 ranked, Lamar Tigers, and Butler punched Lamar right in the mouth early.  Both teams would struggle to have any defensive stops giving up repeated big plays and trading leads until a lightning forced weather delay.  Lamar returned from the locker room and the Bears did not, as the Tigers would outscore the Bears, 5 TD’s to 1, following the break.  Butler drops their first game of the season the Brotherhood from Lamar remains undefeated.  Click here for that REPlay …
