WEMO Football in full swing

damonIn what is likely to be the game that defines, if not outright, determines the WEMO championship, two state ranked teams met to open the season Friday night on the featured game of the week for KCMW.  Check out the replay … The Cass-Midway Vikings, ranked #10, and defending conference champions, hosted the #4 ranked Osceola Indians, last year’s district champions, in a tightly fought battle.  After scoring the opening TD, the Indians never trailed in the game until Midway scored with three minutes to go to secure the victory.  Splitting last season’s games lit a fire with many of the Vikings, especially after losing the district title to eventual semi-finalist, Osceola, on Midway’s field.  Despite four turnovers, the Vikings stayed close throughout, overcoming a 62 yard interception return for a TD by all-everything CB Driston Self.  Vikings QB immediately responded with a 62 yard TD toss to Conor Hayes, all 5’5 of him, as he scampered down the sideline for the score.  The two would hook up again from 32 yards out for the game winner as Midway won 28-22.
In other WEMO action, Drexel led throughout against Appleton City, though the game was close until late.  A 28-20 lead for the Bobcats early in the fourth quarter eventually became a 40-20 victory.  In non-conference action, Archie is still searching for their first points of the season as the Crest Ridge Cougars blasted them 53-0 at Archie.  Rich Hill hosted Lincoln in another non-con, and despite a one TD halftime lead, the Cardinals hammered the Tigers in the second half to pull away and win 50-21.  The only WEMO team to win in a non-conference match-up was Adrian under first year coach Matt Cochran, as they blasted long time rival Butler 42-12.
