Harrisonville 14, Warrensburg 13
A pair of passes from River Riley in the final minute made the difference for the visiting Wildcats in a come-from-behind win over their undefeated conference rival.
Down 13-6, Riley connected for touchdown on a 15-yard completion to Braydon Tarwater -- Riley’s first pass attempt during the nine-play drive -- with 43 seconds left.
Having missed an extra point on their first touchdown, Harrisonville (2-4, 2-0 Missouri River Valley Conference West) opted to attempt a 2-point conversion and claim the lead. Riley found Colby Knowles in the end zone and the Wildcats defense did the rest.
Shelby Pittsenbarger had a 42-yard receiving touchdown and threw for another touchdown on the receiver’s only pass attempt as Warrensburg (5-1, 1-1).
Lafayette County 42, Holden 14
Mason Gash was true to his surname, gashing visiting Holden with 178 yards rushing and all six of the Huskies’ touchdowns.
Jackson Tevis twice threw touchdown passes to Jayden Brown, the first 23 second into the game, as Holden (2-4, 0-2 Missouri River Valley Conference East) was competitive in the first half.
But Gash’s back-to-back first-quarter scoring runs put the Huskies (4-2, 2-0) ahead 14-7.
The Tevis-Brown combination made it 14-14 before halftime, but the second half belonged to Gash and Lafayette County.
Lee’s Summit North 21, Lee’s Summit West 14
Carlton Perkins threw two touchdowns and Dayne Davis had two interceptions, one he returned for touchdown as the Broncos (4-2, 2-1 Suburban Gold) never trailed on the way to snapping the Titans’ four-game winning streak.
Sammy Cooper twice connected on long scoring completion to Logan Muckey to pull the Titans (4-2, 1-2) within a touchdown.
But Lee’s Summit West’s last-ditch drive after cutting it to 21-14 ended just outside the red zone when Davis intercepted a Cooper pass for the second time with 90 seconds left.
Odessa 49, Excelsior Springs 7
Class 3’s second-ranked team topped 40 points again for the sixth time in six games this season, thanks to six first-half turnovers by Excelsior Springs (4-2, 0-2 Missouri River Valley Conference West) that led to short fields for host Odessa (6-0, 2-0).
The Bulldogs only needed 36 plays and 290 yards on offense to emerge again with a dominant win. Josey Meierarend threw touchdowns to three different receivers and three rushers each rna for a touchdown.
The Tigers turned the ball over on each of their first half possessions -- 5 fumbles, 1 interception -- as Odessa turned those into 42 points in the half.
Park Hill South 29, Liberty 21
Mike Suchanick’s 1-yard quarterback keeper 3:05 left was the deciding score for the visiting Panthers (3-3, 2-2 Suburban Red) in a game they led 10-0 and that saw four lead changes.
Suchanick, who passed for 309 yards, gave Park Hill South leads of 7-0 and 16-14 on touchdown completions to Nathan Sharp (19 yards) and Eric Avery (39 yards).
Liberty (2-4, 2-2) took its first lead in the final seconds of the first half when Ryan Olivas returned a blocked field goal for touchdown.
In between Suchanick’s second-half touchdowns, Liberty’s Luke Smith scored from two yards to put the Blue Jays ahead 21-16.
