SM West's Sean Jones was able to boot a 27-yard field goal with seconds remaining in the first half to pull the Vikings within four points. The third quarter was when the Lancers separated themselves. First Adam Lowe took a pitch seven yards for a touchdown to put SM East up 14-3. Following that score, the Lancers compiled a lengthy drive and Schrock found Elliot Faerber on a 21-yard strike for another touchdown to put SM East up 21-3.

Olathe South 31, Blue Valley West 30
Early on it looked like Olathe South was going to have an easy time collecting their sixth straight victory--in the end, the Falcons were just glad to come out on top. Olathe South opened scoring with a nine-yard touchdown run from Nick Sands. Jake Crist added an eight-yard touchdown run for the Falcons early in the second quarter before Blue Valley West got on the scoreboard with a two-yard run from Matt McKinnis. Olathe South was able to drive and Jared Douglas drilled a 38-yard field goal before the half to make things 17-7. Sands added an early second half touchdown run for Olathe South before Blue Valley West hit their stride. The Jaguars' DeSean Warren returned a kickoff 99 yards for a touchdown, then caught an 80-yard touchdown pass from Devin Rose to help move Blue Valley West within 3 points. They evened the score with a 20-yard field goal from Connor Childress in the fourth quarter. The teams ended regulation tied at 24. Olathe South had the first possession in overtime and scored on a two-yard run from Sands. Blue Valley West answered when Rose hit Lee Snell on an eight-yard touchdown pass. The Jaguars elected to go for the two point conversion and the win, but their run up the middle was stuffed, and Olathe South claimed a 31-30 win.

Olathe East 42, Blue Valley Northwest 20
This week's game was much more comfortable for top rated Olathe East. The team scored two early touchdowns on an eight-yard run from Austin Fulson and an eight-yard reverse pass from Brandon Willingham to Trent Kuhl. Blue Valley Northwest answered with a 16-yard touchdown run from Garrett Fugate at the start of the second quarter.

Blue Valley Northwest's final score was on a two-yard pass from Fugate to Zerni in the fourth quarter.

Olathe North 38, Lawrence Free State 7
Olathe North made quite the statement with an impressive victory over Lawrence Free State Thursday night.

Gentry would later add a 34-yard touchdown catch from Simmons to put Olathe North up 21-0. A one-yard touchdown run by Adonis Saunders pushed the lead to 28-0 at the half. Olathe North's Kyle Swartz added a touchdown run in the third quarter, and kicker Daniel Gutierrez booted a 23-yard field goal to put the Eagles at the 38 point mark.

People seem to be missing that the OS-BVW game went into overtime after South freshman, Braden Smith, blocked a 20 something yard field goal which was kicked with 2.7 seconds left. It was insane.

Other than district 4 and 7, all districts are pretty clear. Note that district records is first factor in seeding so even teams that have clinched their district could wind up with a lower seed if they lose their last game.

District 1: SMNW has won the district, SMN-LV winner gets other playoff spots.

District 2 SME has won the district. SME-BVN winner gets other playoff spot.

District 3 OE and OS in playoffs. Winner wins district.

District 4 Up in the air. ON needs to win to clinch. If ONW and LAW win, ONW wins district, ON gets second. If ONW and LFS win, ON wins district, Points determine second spot, LFS is 12 points aheadof ONW coming in - could wind up tied. If ON and LFS wins LFS gets second spot. If ON and LAW win, LFS still gets spot unless they lose by 8 or more.

District 5 MAN and JCT in playoffs, winner wins district

District 6 Heights and Derby in playoffs, winner wins district

District 7 WNW wins district with win or Campus win. Campus in playoffs with win and South loss. If North and NW win, comes down to points for second, Campus wins on points.

District 8 Dodge and Goddard in playoffs, winner wins district.

I guess they can't win it every year...but i can't think of any teams on this side of the state that are head and shoulders above them? SME, SMW, SMNW, SMN, OS, Freestate are not better (maybe equal). OEast beat North but lost to lawrence and have struggled in other games that should ahve been easier. I am not sure come playoff time if it will be quite that onesided.
