Blue Springs wins shootout over Lee's Summi
By Shawn Roney The Examiner
Blue Springs running back Dalvin Warmack had a blast Friday night at Lee’s Summit.
His head football coach, Kelly Donohoe? Not so much.
Warmack zipped through Lee’s Summit for a personal best 419 yards and six touchdowns on 19 carries to help the Wildcats win their regular-season finale 84-62 (yes, that’s the correct score). The junior, who said he’d never surpassed 200 yards in a game this season, had 201 yards and three rushing touchdowns during the first quarter. He also contributed a 50-yard first-quarter touchdown on a shovel pass from Wylson Lamb.
“It was a good accomplishment,” said Warmack, who has scored 32 touchdowns this season. “I give it all up to my line. They did everything they were supposed to.”"
Warmack’s contributions were part of an offensive showdown in which the Suburban Big Six opponents scored 100 of their 146 combined total points during the first half. Blue Springs (8-1 overall, 5-0 conference) led 37-14 after one quarter, 58-42 at halftime and 71-49 after three quarters.
“I never thought I’d be a part of a score this high,” Warmack said. “It was a fun game.”
Warmack probably never thought he would be part of a game with that much offense, either.
Clocking in at more than three hours (with no overtime), the epic scorefest featured 1,332 yards of combined total offense. Blue Springs tallied 752 yards, including 171 yards passing from Lamb, who completed 11 of 18 tosses for 171 yards, with four touchdowns and one interception.
Lee’s Summit (3-6, 1-4) put up 580 total yards, including 344 passing yards. Tigers quarterback Drew Lock completed 24 of 41 passes for 345 yards and six touchdowns.
The output seemed to stun Donohoe.
“It was the weirdest night of seeing a team just make so many big plays,” he said. “And so many times, we’re there and we’re not making plays.”
“It’s very frustrating – the amount of plays we didn’t make in the secondary when we were all over it,” he added. “But you have to – first and foremost – give them credit for making play after play throughout the night. I’m just flabbergasted. I’m embarrassed. I’m discouraged.”
