Not much went right Friday night for Lee’s Summit as the Tigers were walloped 42-0 on the road at Blue Springs South Friday night.

All-conference quarterback Justin Givens was out of the game with a reported concussion, leaving backup Dan McElroy and running back King Frazier to carry to load against a stacked Jaguars team that manhandled Lee’s Summit North a week ago, 49-0.

The Tigers could getting little going on offense, punting the ball seven times, rushing 23 times for just 21 yards and gaining 73 total yards on offense.

Lee’s Summit punter Brevin Letner may have seen the most action as he was forced into seven punting situations as field possession stayed on the side of South most of the night.

The Jaguars led 7-0 after the first quarter on quarterback Connor Harris’s touchdown pass to Levi Riley. The first half ended with a 20-0 South lead as running back Steven Sullivan found the endzone twice as the Jaguar offensive line created big holes for the senior back. Sullivan scored on runs of 25 and 6 yards.

Harris scored again to start the third quarter and South later took a 35-0 advantage – enough to start the running clock – when Harris hit Pat Martin for a 40-yard touchdown strike.

The Tigers briefly mounted a drive after that score, but were stopped cold when Martin, on defense, snatched a pass from Lee’s Summit.

The Jaguars’ Trey Ervin scored the final touchdown on a 3 yard run.

Lee’s Summit, now 3-3 on the year, return home to Bud Hertzog Stadium to face rival Lee’s Summit West in the first week of district play Oct. 14.
