Last week's results: Prairie View lost to Anderson County, 17-14; Baldwin lost to Paola, 39-14

Last year's meeting: Baldwin won, 41-14

Last week's results: Basehor-Linwood lost to Mill Valley, 42-8; Perry-Lecompton beat Lansing, 21-13

Last year's meeting: Perry-Lecompton won, 10-0

Quick hits: Perry-Lecompton is feeling good about itself after winning last week's revenge game against the team that knocked the Kaws out of the Class 4A playoffs. Perry-Lecompton had rushing touchdowns last week from three different players - Shane Gizmo, Caleb Denton and Brent Garrison.

Tonganoxie (2-0) at Bonner Springs (1-1)

Last week's results: Tonganoxie beat Kansas City Ward, 34-17; Bonner Springs lost to Kansas City Piper, 35-20

Last year's meeting: Tonganoxie won, 28-12

Anderson County (2-0) at De Soto (2-0)

Last week's results: Anderson County beat Prairie View, 17-14; De Soto beat Kansas City Sumner, 18-0

Last year's meeting: De Soto won, 28-14

Quick hits: De Soto is averaging 39 points per game this season, but will face an Anderson County defense that shut out Central Heights, 28-0, the first week of the season. Eudora also shut out Central Heights, 34-0, last week, so now's the chance to see if the Anderson County defense is legit.

Ottawa (0-2) at Spring Hill (0-2)

Last week: Ottawa lost to Louisburg, 64-0; Spring Hill lost to Gardner-Edgerton, 61-12

Last year's meeting: Ottawa won, 35-6

Last week: Oskaloosa beat Valley Falls, 30-0; Jackson Heights lost to Pleasant Ridge, 34-0

Last year's meeting: Jackson Heights won, 20-7

Quick hits: Oskaloosa has already equaled its win total from last season. Quarterback Brock McGinnis threw two touchdowns passes - from 21 and 44 yards - for the Bears last week. Oskaloosa had a balanced attack and also had two touchdown runs, courtesy of Mitch Lowe and Boone Heston.

Wathena (1-1) at McLouth (1-1)

Last week: Wathena beat Horton, 18-15; McLouth beat Doniphan West, 27-20

Last year's meeting: McLouth won, 56-6

Quick hits: Mark Stewart accounted for three McLouth touchdowns last week. Doniphan West outgained McLouth on offense last week, 251-111. The biggest play of the game for McLouth was arguably when Trevor Keling intercepted a pass in Doniphan West's end zone. It tied the game up and completely changed the momentum in the Bulldogs' favor.
