Andale scores twice in final minute to overtake Collegiate, 32-21

Andale didn’t lead until the final minute, but the No. 2 ranked Indians late rally was enough to top 4A-II No. 4 Wichita Collegiate, 32-21.

The game was somewhat similar to last year’s contest with the two schools flipping roles. Last season, Andale was in control for much of the game only to see a late Collegiate rally force overtime where the Spartans would win 46-45.

On Friday, Collegiate was in control for much of the game. The Spartans led 14-0 for much of the first half until Taylor Richter pulled the Indians within 14-6 at the break.

Richter’s touchdown pass to Nathan Postlethwait pulled the Indians within 14-12 in the third quarter.

But Collegiate would take control again on a Cody McNerney touchdown run for a 21-12 lead with 5:30 remaining.

Richter hit Dylan Horsch on a touchdown pass to pull within 21-19, and the Indians got the ball back with 2:30 remaining.

Richter scored from 17 yards out with a minute left to give the Indians a 25-21 lead.

Collegiate tried a throw-back pass, but McNerney was intercepted by Jace Stuever who had an easy dart to the end zone.

Bishop Miege destroys Mill Valley in EKL showdown

The Bishop Miege Stags scored within the first minute, scored on its first seven possessions, and built a 57-point lead by the mid-third quarter during a 64-21 win over the Mill Valley Jaguars.

Stags wide receiver Landry Weber hauled in four touchdown passes in the victory. Quarterback Carter Putz threw five touchdown passes on the night.

It was a statement win for the defending Class 4A Division I state champion over the defending Class 5A state champion.

The top-ranked Stags are now on a five-game winning streak after falling 35-28 to Blue Valley in the season opener.

Mill Valley, which entered the week ranked No. 4 in Class 5A, lost its third game in a row. 

Manhattan regains the Silver Trophy with late TD

Manhattan quarterback Ian Trapp scored on a 9-yard touchdown run with just over two minutes remaining to propel the Indians to a 27-22 win over rival Junction City.  Making an appearance on defense, Trapp then sealed the victory with a late interception of Junction City quarterback Ryan Henington allowing the Indians to reclaim the Silver Trophy awarded annually to the game’s winner.

This marked the eighth consecutive game in the series decided by eight points or fewer. Junction City won last year’s game 17-14 in overtime.  

Manhattan built a 21-10 halftime lead behind touchdown runs by Trapp and Tariq Gerald in the second quarter.

But Junction City would pull within 21-16 on a Henington touchdown run after halftime.  The Blue Jays then took the lead 22-21 on a Tim Bell touchdown run with 5:30 remaining in the game before Trapp’s late heroics.

Trapp rushed for 175 yards on the night only out done by Henington who led Junction City with 265 rushing yards.

Garden City completes big comeback to remain unbeaten

The Wichita Northwest Grizzlies scored touchdowns on four of their first five possessions and appeared to be on their way to blowing out the previously unbeaten Garden City Buffaloes. 

Northwest led 27-0 mid-way through the second quarter, but the Buffs scored a pair of touchdowns before halftime to pull within 27-14, then shutout the Grizzly offense in the second half to finish a wild comeback and a 46-34 victory.

Jesse Nunez threw touchdown passes to Peyton Hill and Jason Yi before halftime to pull the Buffs within 27-14.

In the second half, Hill and Nunez took over behind the Garden City offensive line. Nunez scored two touchdowns in the third quarter to pull Garden City even at 27, then gave the Buffs a 33-27 lead early in the fourth quarter on his third touchdown run.

Northwest would respond with a huge special teams play as Jalin Terrell returned a blocked punt for a touchdown to put the Grizzlies up 34-33 with just over four minutes remaining.

Garden City, though, got a huge return to midfield on the ensuing kickoff by Quinton LaPointe, and a late hit out-of-bounds tacked on 15-more yards.  Nunez scored shortly after to put Garden City up 39-34.

Northwest got the ball back with over a minute remaining, but quarterback Austin Anderson’s pass was picked by LaPointe and returned for a touchdown to seal the win.

Hill led Garden City with 221 yards rushing, while Nunez contributed 160 on the ground with his four touchdowns.  

Three Jahlyl Rounds touchdown runs helped Northwest to their big early lead.  Rounds finished with 171 rushing yards and three scores.
