Blue Springs rolls past Lee's Summit North
By Bill Althaus The Examiner
Following an embarrassing defensive performance against Lee's Summit in the final week of the regular season, a gritty and determined Blue Springs High School football team took care of business Friday night.
The Wildcats raced to a 41-0 halftime lead and hammered Lee's Summit North 61-13 in the opening round of Class 6 District 4 postseason play.
“This is Wildcat football,” defensive lineman James Young said after the starting unit shut out the Broncos for one half before turning the game over to the understudies. “We were embarrassed last week.
“We weren't prepared, and that won't happen again.”
The Wildcats gave up 62 points in an 84-62 victory over the Tigers in Week 9, which led to a get-back-to-the-basics work week for coach Kelly Donohoe's 9-1 squad.
“This feels good, real good,” Donohoe said in an enthusiastic locker room. “We had to clean some things up this week, and we did. Because we won last week, I won't say we lost our confidence – but it feels good to come back and win like we did tonight.”
Although Dalvin Warmack – who rushed for 419 yards and scored seven touchdowns in the shootout against the Tigers – scored four more touchdowns, the offensive star Friday night was quarterback Wylson Lamb, who was an effective 12 of 16 passing for 226 yards and two scores.
