Brison Cobbins ran for three touchdowns and Timothy Dorsey completed touchdown passes to Daniel Jackson of 60 yards and 58 yards as visiting Bishop Miege scored all its points unanswered over the final three quarters in a 34-7 win that sent Rockhurst to a second consecutive loss.
The Stags, five-time defending champions in Kansas Class 4A and again ranked No. 1, held Rockhurst to fewer than 2 yards per play and just 84 yards total as a follow-up to their surprising 28-27 loss to St. James last week.
In Friday’s first drive, the Hawklets covered 80 yards alone, capping a six-play sequence with Chuck Ingram’s 55-yard breakaway touchdown run and a quick 7-0 lead for this Missouri side.
The next 11 drives weren’t nearly so productive for Rockhurst (3-3), which came in No. 10 in Class 6 and was runner-up in 2018. The Hawklets had eight three-and-outs, an interception, a fumble and a failed fourth-down conversion.
The Hawklets have only managed more than 17 points once in six games in legendary coach Tony Severino’s final year.
Unlike Rockhurst, Miege’s offense didn’t make an immediate impact. And unlike Rockhurst, when it finally got going, it kept going -- to the tune of 399 yards.
One drive after the first Dorsey-to-Jackson touchdown, Cobbins ran in a 3-yard touchdown with 7:42 left in the first half gave the Stags their first lead at 13-7.
Cobbins ended up with 154 yards on the ground, while Jackson’s four catches totalled 136 yards for the Stags (4-1), who suffered a 14-13 home loss to their interstate rival last year.
