Mill Valley 24, Blue Valley 20
Cooper Marsh’s three touchdown passes proved to be enough for the visiting Jaguars to overcome a 13-0 deficit and win their third consecutive game as they flirt with entering the Class 5A Top 5 as the final week of the regular season approaches.
Blue Valley (4-3, 3-3 Eastern Kansas League) struck first. With 3:17 left in the first quarter, quarterback Jake Wolff ran 13 yards into the end zone. Shortly after, Chris Jans scored on a 73-yard run -- the first of two touchdowns -- to establish that 13-0 advantage.
But Marsh’s magic -- he finished 15 for 24 and 201 yards -- flipped the script late with two fourth quarter touchdowns to secure the win.
Mill Valley was in that position thanks to his 32-yard completion to Ty Reishus, coupled with a 20-yard Chris Tennant field goal two minutes earlier, pulled the Jaguars (4-3, 3-3) to 13-10 at halftime.
Lansing 56, Turner 14

Paul Vogan provided the rare highlight for Turner with his fourth-quarter touchdown run to prevent the shutout.
