September 7, 2006


Kickoff for all games is 7 p.m.

Today's Game

De Soto (1-0)

at Kansas City Sumner (1-0)

Last week's results: De Soto beat Ottawa, 60-19; Sumner beat Van Horn (Mo.), 49-19

Last year's meeting: Did not play

Quick Hits: The game should be full of offensive fireworks, as the two schools combined to score 109 points last week.

Friday's Games

Baldwin (0-1) at Paola (1-0)

Last week's results: Baldwin lost to Gardner-Edgerton, 36-19; Paola beat Spring Hill, 24-21

Last year's meeting: Paola won, 26-19

Quick Hits: The Bulldogs will look to stop the ground game after giving up three rushing touchdowns last week. All three of Paola's touchdowns also came via the run.

Tonganoxie (1-0)

at Kansas City Ward (0-1)

Last week's results: Tonganoxie beat Lansing, 37-14; Ward lost to Mill Valley, 42-13

Last year's meetings: Tonganoxie won, 7-0, in regular season; Tonganoxie won, 18-14, in Class 4A bi-district playoffs

Quick Hits: The Chieftains scored four of their five touchdowns on the ground in Week 1 and now face a defense that surrendered almost 300 rushing yards Friday.

Perry-Lecompton (1-0)

at Lansing (0-1)

Last week's results: Perry-Lecompton beat Leavenworth Immaculata, 20-7; Lansing lost to Tonganoxie, 37-14

Last year's meeting: Lansing won, 31-28 in Class 4A bi-district playoffs

Quick Hits: The Kaws' defense could help avenge last year's playoff loss - in Week 1 , they held Immaculata scoreless, the Raiders' lone score coming on an interception return.

Louisburg (1-0) at Ottawa (0-1)

Last week's results: Louisburg beat Wellsville, 69-6; Ottawa lost to De Soto, 60-19

Last year's meeting: Louisburg won, 42-15

Quick Hits: The Cyclones go from an embarrassing Week 1 loss on the road to a home opener against a team that also topped the 60-point barrier in its debut.

Wellsville (0-1)

at Osawatomie (0-1)

Last week's results: Wellsville lost to Louisburg, 69-6; Osawatomie lost to Eudora, 42-0

Last year's meeting: Osawatomie won, 14-6

Quick Hits: The ability for either team to control the line of scrimmage on the defensive side will be the key in the matchup, as both teams gave up numerous rushing touchdowns in Week 1.

Valley Falls (0-1)

at Oskaloosa (1-0)

Last week's results: Valley Falls lost to Doniphan West, 20-0; Oskaloosa beat Wathena, 28-6

at Doniphan West (1-0)

Last week's results: McLouth lost to Troy 42-21; Doniphan West beat Valley Falls 20-0

Last year's meeting: McLouth won, 27-7

Last week's results: Mill Valley beat Kansas City Ward, 42-13; Basehor-Linwood lost to Bonner Springs, 17-16

Last year's meeting: Mill Valley won, 18-0

Quick Hits: Mill Valley will face a tough decision on offense. Tailback Justin Woods ran for 272 yards and two scores in the opener, while quarterback Tray Scott threw for two touchdowns.

Veritas (0-1)

at Topeka Cair Paravel (0-0)

Last week's result: Veritas lost to Baileyville B & B, 46-0

Last year's meeting: Veritas won, 44-8

Quick Hits: The Eagles come in with only three quarters under their belts, with last week's 46-point margin enough to end the game early. Veritas will look to its fourth quarter - or the first quarter of Week 2 - to get its offense moving.

Saturday's Game

Santa Fe Trail (1-0)

at Leavenworth Immaculata (0-1)

Last week's results: Santa Fe Trail beat Kansas City Piper, 10-7; Leavenworth Immaculata lost to Perry-Lecompton, 20-7

Last year's meeting: Santa Fe Trail won, 41-20

Quick Hits: Santa Fe Trail could do something to put last year's season in the past - tie its 2005 win total.
