Week Five Matchups
All game times 7 pm unless otherwise noted
SM North (2-2) at Olathe North (4-0)
One team is on a roll, and the other a two game skid. For SM North this game against Olathe North couldn't have come at a worse time. After a solid 2-0 start to the season, the Indians have dropped two straight and now sit with a .500 record. Notching a win against Olathe North is going to be one tall task--for any team in the league.
SM Northwest (3-1) at Lawrence Free State (3-1)
This game may be the best matchup of the weekend. Both teams have been playing very well of late and it will also be featuring two of the top quarterbacks in the league--Camren Torneden and Matt Nowak--in an offensive showcase. Free State played great run defense in their defeat of SM West last weekend, and SM Northwest is a team that likes to pound the ball with their running attack early and often. It should be a fun one in Lawrence.
Olathe Northwest (2-2) at Olathe East (2-2)
This game will be Olathe Northwest's last chance at beating a fellow Olathe team in the regular season. Olathe East on the other hand will be looking to establish themselves a bit more this week. After finishing up a brutal four game stretch last week, the Hawks face only one more team in the regular season with a winning record. This could be where the Hawks start rolling.
Olathe South (2-2) at Lawrence (0-4)
Olathe South is in a similar situation to Olathe East. After a tough four game stretch the Falcons will be looking to flex their muscles against the winless Lawrence High. At this point in time Lawrence will be doing anything and everything in their power to notch a W. A loss would guarantee the Lions a losing regular season.
Leavenworth (0-4) at SM East (1-3)
On paper this is Leavenworth's best opportunity to garner a win before they play Lawrence in week nine. SM East on the other hand is looking to collect their second win in as many weeks, quite contrary to the 0-3 record they started the season with.
SM West (3-1) at SM South (2-2)
For the first time all season SM West wasn't able to make a comeback win, and ended up losing to Free State 22-15 last week. The loss was the first SM West has had in the first five games of the season in four years. The Vikings will be hungry, but on the other side of the coin SM South would like nothing better than to defeat the visitors at SM South District Stadium.
