Eudora — Alex Lynch scored on runs of 18, 8 and 3 yards to lead Ottawa High football past Eudora.

Eudora tied the score at 7 when J.T. Howell scored on a 12-yard run in the first quarter, but the Cardinals were blanked the rest of the way.

Howell gained 115 yards on 15 carries.

Kord Ferguson also scored on a one-yard run for Ottawa.

Eudora (5-3) will play Thursday at Baldwin.

Tonganoxie 34, Jefferson West 33

Meriden — Tonganoxie trailed 20-0 late in the second quarter, but mounted a furious comeback and stuffed a two-point conversion attempt with 40 seconds left for a victory at Jeff West.

The Chieftains (7-1, 2-0 Class 4A District 2) managed just 84 first-half yards against the Tigers (6-2, 1-1), but finished with 306 in the come-from-behind win, which puts them in position for a second straight district title.

The teams traded scores to open the second half, and Jeff West held a 27-14 lead midway through the third quarter. THS quarterback Tyler Ford then engineered three consecutive scoring drives, throwing touchdown passes to Carl Hecht and Jared Sommers and running in another score from five yards out. Ford’s rushing score gave the Chieftains a 34-27 advantage with 3:20 remaining in the game.

The Tigers scored on the ensuing drive and, with the help of a roughing-the-passer call, got a first-and-goal situation at the four-yard line. Quarterback Ian Mullins ran the ball twice for short gains, then threw a three-yard lob to Alex Broers to make it a one-point game with 40 seconds remaining.

JWHS elected to go for two, and the Chieftain defense stuffed running back Wyatt Miller at the one-yard line.

Jeff West scored the first 20 points on three touchdown passes from Mullins to Drew Slimmer and looked to tack on more before halftime. However, Shane Levy came up with his first of two interceptions near midfield in the closing minutes of the second quarter. THS capitalized when Ford hit Ben Johnson for an 11-yard score with 47 seconds remaining, giving the Chieftains some momentum going into the locker room.

The Chieftains can clinch the district outright with a win Thursday against Basehor-Linwood at THS. The Bobcats (3-5, 1-1) defeated Perry-Lecompton in Friday’s other district game, 37-16.
