The Cardinals then scored 50 straight points, including touchdown runs of 69 and 17 yards by Ballock, 15 and 2 yards by Hill, and 5 and 3 yards by Cleveland. Garrett Elston also scored on a 25-yard run.

Tonganoxie 9, Jefferson West 7

Tonganoxie — The THS defense came up with six sacks, including a key fourth-down stop in the final minute of the game, to preserve a victory against Jeff West at Beatty Field.

The Chieftains (3-5) improved to 1-1 in Class 4A District 2 play. The district win is their first since the 2008 season.

Jeff West (4-4, 1-1) had the ball down by two points with 2:51 left in the fourth quarter. The Tigers drove into Chieftain territory and lined up for a 35-yard field goal, but coach Steve Johnson called a timeout and instead decided to try for a first down. THS defensive lineman James Grizzle came up with a fourth-down sack of quarterback Ian Mullins with 59 seconds remaining, and the Chieftains kneeled out the clock.

In the other district game, Basehor-Linwood beat Perry-Lecompton, 29-14. All four teams are 1-1 in district play, so a win next week at BLHS would guarantee the Chieftains their first playoff berth since 2006.

Spring Hill 17, De Soto 13

De Soto — De Soto surrendered a touchdown with 41 seconds left in its district loss to Spring Hill.

De Soto had taken a 13-10 lead with 3:06 to play on Jason Johnson’s one-yard touchdown run.

Baldwin 41, Santa Fe Trail 0

Baldwin City — Cornell Brown ran for five first-half touchdowns as Baldwin High (6-2) coasted to a victory against winless Santa Fe Trail (0-8).

With the win, Baldwin improved to 2-0 in district play and is assured a spot in the 4A state playoffs.

Basehor-Linwood 29, Perry-Lecompton 14

Basehor — Basehor-Linwood’s Drew Potter bookended the game with a pair of touchdowns.

Basehor-Linwood (4-4) will host Tonganoxie on Thursday, while Perry-Lecompton (3-5) will travel to Jefferson West. Winners of each will advance to the playoffs.
