Olathe North 48, SM West 21

Olathe North's "Big Three," consisting of Orange Mooney, Tanner Gentry and Treshawn Root, all found their way into the scoring column early against SM West, fueling the Eagle's 27-point victory.

Root put Olathe North up 7-0 in the first quarter when he took a carry 47-yards to the house.  In the second quarter Jordan Bruce connected with Gentry on a 17-yard touchdown pass, which was followed up by an eight-yard touchdown run from Mooney.  The Eagles added their fourth touchdown on another run from Root, this time from 26 yards out, to go up 28-0.  SM West snuck in late touchdown on a one-yard run from Armani Williams to pull the game to 28-7 as the teams broke for halftime.

In the third quarter Olathe North had one touchdown score--a 30-yard pass from Bruce to Gentry--to go up 34-7.  SM West added a touchdown on a three-yard run from Tre Burt to make things 34-14.

Olathe North closed out the game with two touchdowns in the fourth quarter.  One on a seven-yard run from Bruce, and then a 57-yard run from Root, to go up 48-21.  SM West's lone fourth quarter score came on a 68-yard touchdown run from Burt.

With the win, Olathe North improved to 3-0 on the season.  SM West fell to 1-2, marking the first time since 2003 that the Vikings have had a losing record past the first game of the season.

Olathe North is a good team, that goes without saying. SMW learned a lot last night and I am proud of the boys. I hope they can continue to improve as the season goes and make a run in districts. Both teams showed class and short of a few face mask penalties played a clean game.

I was impressed with West's effort as well. Given the host of injuries they're facing (I'm starting to wonder about the conditioning as this seems to be a yearly thing). I thought Armani really played on of his best games, very cool, rolled the pocket stood his ground and made a number of good throws. A few overthrows but all in all pretty good. Spiller was outstanding on offense. Tre ran hard all night, didn't get much help from the patchwork O line in the first half. A few of dropped balls and the one turnover but a largely mistake free game. North just simply physically superior. Viking Dad is right, I take this game as a positive which should prepare the Vikes for a good run late in the year. Hopefully the center can come back from his injury, there were problems on the long/shot gun snaps.
