#1 Shawnee Mission East (12-0)
Last: defeated No. 2 Olathe North 36-35 in double overtime in 6A semifinals

Top-ranked Shawnee Mission East edged No.2 Olathe North 36-35 in double overtime. Wyatt Edmisten stretched the ball across the goal line before the Eagles ripped it away to pull the Lancers to within 35-34 in the second overtime. SM East coach Dustin Delaney decided to line up quickly and go for two and the win. They ran a rocket toss play to Sam Huffman that Olathe North appeared to have strung out very well, but Huffman stopped and cut back through the defense and into the end zone for the dramatic winning points. The Lancers led 7-0 well into the third quarter until Olathe North’s Chaz Burgess returned an interception 81 yards to tie the game. Olathe North later blocked a punt which led to a Venus Triplett touchdown and a 14-7 Eagle lead. Shawnee Mission East answered with a long run by Huffman, but the PAT was no good. Edmisten scored from five yards out with about five minutes remaining and the two-point conversion gave SM East a 21-14 lead. Olathe North tied the game at 21 with less than a minute to go on a 13-yard touchdown pass from Cole Murphy to Burgess on a 4th-and-9 play.
