Gardner-Edgerton 36, Baldwin 19
Gardner - The Bulldogs finally discovered their offense in the fourth quarter, but couldn't fight back from an early deficit in their season opener.
The Blazers, under new head coach Marvin Diener, ran to a 16-0 halftime lead, then added the first two scores of the second half to increase that margin to 30-0.
"They controlled the line of scrimmage tonight," Baldwin coach Mike Berg said. "We thought we could be the more physical team and that wasn't the case tonight."
Aaron Mills scored the first TD for Baldwin midway through the final frame on a five-yard run. Blake Wieden added a 15-yard touchdown pass to Drew Berg, and Chase Abel closed out the late flurry with a one-yard plunge.
The Bulldogs will entertain Paola on Friday.

Tonganoxie 37, Lansing 14

Troy 42, McLouth 21
Troy - One week into the season, McLouth has matched its loss total from all of last year.
The Bulldogs, who beat Troy 26-6 a year ago en route to a 10-1 final record, fell behind early in this meeting and never really threatened. Troy scored three touchdowns in the first quarter alone.
"Our kids never quit," McLouth coach Harry Hester said. "That's important to me. They kept fighting until the end. It just wasn't a very good night."
It was for Trevor Keling. He had 17 rushes for 192 yards and two touchdowns for McLouth.
But Troy had two 100-plus-yard rushers: Caylor Luther had 218 yards and three TDs, and Kelby Koehler ran for 110 yards and two touchdowns.

Perry-Lecompton 20, Leavenworth Immaculata 7
Perry - It took Perry-Lecompton awhile to get things going, but the Kaws finished with a flourish.
Leavenworth Immaculata struck first when it intercepted a Caleb Denton pass and returned it 60 yards for a touchdown.
That was Immac's only score.
Perry-Lecompton moved the ball downfield and was able to get in the end zone three times during the second half, all on the ground.
Shane Gimzo paced the Kaws with 102 yards rushing on just 10 carries.
Denton was accurate, other than the interception, finishing 11-of-19 for 102 yards.
"We just came out and seemed a little flat, and they took it to us early," P-L coach Mike Paramore said. "We were moving the football, we just didn't have anything consistently."
The Kaws next will travel to Lansing.
