Blue Springs South tops Lee's Summit North
By Mike Genet The Examiner
Blue Springs South coach Greg Oder might not file his team’s 34-7 win Friday at Lee’s Summit North into the improving-each-week folder.
The Class 6 No. 10 Jaguars lost three fumbles and got flagged for 11 penalties, but after notching the game’s first two scores just 16 seconds apart in the second quarter, they weren’t in danger against the struggling host Broncos and improved to 5-3 overall and 3-1 in the Suburban Big Six.
“We won’t run out of things to work on, that’s for sure,” South coach Greg Oder said.
Oder might find plenty of bright spots in his team’s defensive performance, though, as the Jaguars sacked North quarterback Matt Brumfield six times and limited the Broncos (1-6, 0-4) to just 153 yards.
“We needed to wake up, and in the second quarter we came out and did what we needed to do,” said South linebacker Cameron Klim, who had four of the team’s 12 tackles for loss.
After surviving a pair of turnovers near midfield, the Jaguars drove 80 yards in seven plays for the game’s first touchdown.
Brandin Dandridge made a twisting first-down catch on fourth-and-9, setting up his 22-yard score off a receiver screen on the next play. Colton Pogue booted the first of his four PATs at the 8:50 mark.
Donny Monroe then recovered a North fumble on the ensuing kickoff, and the next snap saw Dalton Brewer go untouched on an option keeper for a 23-yard TD.
