Powered by quarterback Chase Torkelson’s three passing touchdowns and a 23-yard scoring run, the visiting Bobcats won easily as they look ahead to their United Kansas Conference matchup with undefeated and Class 5A third-ranked De Soto next week.
Torkelson went 13 for 19 for 240 yards through the air. He twice connected with Ethan Huber in the second quarter, then hit Connor Younger early in the third to put Basehor-Linwood ahead 35-0.
Huber was the recipient of nine of Torkelson’s completions, accounting for 194 yards. Curtis Ingham also ran for two touchdowns for the Bobcats (3-2, 3-1 United Kansas Conference).
Luke Green’s 9-yard run midway through the fourth quarter were the first points Turner (0-5, 0-4) scored this season.

After back-to-back 7-point losses to powerhouses Bishop Miege and St. Thomas Aquinas, Mill Valley (2-3, 2-3 Eastern Kansas League) got back on the winning side thanks to Cooper Marsh’s three passing touchdowns and three field goals by Chris Tennant.
The Mustangs (1-4, 1-4) answered two first-quarter Tennant field goals with Henry Martin’s 3-yard touchdown pass to Theo Grabill to take the lead at 7-6. But it was short-lived as Marsh connected with Jacob Marsh for 60 yards less than three minutes later.
