Lawrence 40, Shawnee Mission South 21
The undefeated and third-ranked Lions outscored visiting Shawnee Mission South 26-0 after halftime, stymying the visiting Raiders’ upset hopes.
But the night started promising for SMS (2-4, 1-4 Sunflower League) as it lead 14-0 minutes into the first quarter. First, Erik Smith’s 2-yard touchdown run gave the Raiders the early lead. Then the Raiders blocked a Lawrence (6-0, 6-0) punt recovered and run into the end zone by Will Huggins.
A Lions interception led to another Huggins touchdown in the final seconds of the first half, giving Shawnee Mission South a 21-14 lead.
The momentum was short-lived as Lawrence scored on the first drive of the third quarter, then a 78-yard catch-and-run play later in the quarter gave Lawrence ahead for good.
