WEMO/Butler Football Week 2

damonIn one of the featured games of the week on Prepcasts-KCMW, the Midway Vikings visited the Archie Whirlwinds, with both teams seeking their first wins of the season.  The Vikings opened with a halfback pass covering forty-plus yards to set up their first rushing score of the season as Maverick Greer plunged in from one yard out.  Silent until the second quarter, the Vikings would toss two TD passes from the Player of the Game, junior QB Blake Mincks.  Both scores went to Jarrett Jurgeson, and Mincks added a two-point conversion to make the halftime score 21-0.  The Winds would break onto the scoreboard with a 39 yard scamper from sophomore fullback, Gabe Fisher, and then get a fumble returned 70 yards by Kale Wheeler to cut the score to one TD.  The Vikes would close strong the final eight minutes, though, with two rushing scores from Luke Boyer to ice the win, 33-14.  Midway moves to 1-1 in conference and on the season, as Archie remains winless after two affairs.  Click here for that game …
 
The KC area Game of the Week featured a team dismantled last week by the defending class 6 champs, making the long trek to the KC area, and showing strong against the home Tigers squad from Lee’s Summit.  The Hickman Kewpies found themselves locked up in a 7-7 tie at the half, but amidst threatening weather, the Tigers would rebound with two second half scores including a tide-turning huge punt return from Player of the Game, Trevor Fell, and get the 20-7 win and move to 2-0; long drive back to Columbia for the Kewpies who still are looking for the year’s first victory.  Click here for that game …
 
The Bears All Sports Network would see an absolute dismantling in a Crossroads Conference battle as the Butler Bears scored early and often, rolling to a 46-6 win over the visiting Sherwood Marksmen.  The game was never close, and the huge win for Butler pushes them already to double their win total from a year ago, and are poised to be a “surprise team” from the area and Class 2.  Junior QB Kaleb Kauffman was the Player of the Game for the Bears.  Click here to VIEW that game …
 
In other WEMO action, the Appleton City Bulldogs would sport an 8-7 lead over top dog, Osceola, but never lead again as the Indians would begin scoring early in the second frame and often, running away to a 54-22 victory to move to 2-0, as AC remains win-less.  In a similar game that was close early between Drexel and Adrian, the Blackhawks would run away as the game wore on, thumping the visiting Bobcats, 41-8.  The lone WEMO non-con battle featured the Rich Hill Tigers, thought pre-season to be a contender in the area, get crushed again under new coach Marcus Wolfe, this time to visiting Lockwood, 48-0.  The Tigers will visit Appleton City next week still trying to score their first points of the year!
