Welcome to Five From Friday our new Saturday feature that highlights some of the best quotes, notes, stats and performances of the games Friday night. Each Saturday evening PrepsKC will post a Five From Friday looking back on the night that was.

Quote of the Night

“We have a lot of experience, so we know what we’re doing out there. We approach every game like we’re playing the best team in the state.” – Liberty North senior linebacker Sal Silvio after his team beat Blue Springs South 35-0 for their second straight shutout of the season.

Stat Line of the Night

Marquis Caldwell, Oak Park tailback – 34 carries, 248 yards, 5 TDs

The Northmen earned a 41-34 win at Grandview and Caldwell led the way. The senior backed up his 160-yard performance against a tough Winnetonka defense with a breakout showing against the Bulldogs.

Call of the Night

Fort Osage’s Jacob Jacobs picked off a pass from Blue Springs’ Ian Brown and returned it for a touchdown to score the final points in the Indians’ 35-21 win over the Wildcats. The loss ended Blue Springs 25-game winning streak.

Jacob Jacobs interception – Called by Time Warner Cable Sports Channel’s Kevin Wike and Jay Binkley

Team of the Night

O’Hara – The Celtics went to Oak Grove and beat the Panthers 31-24. The win sent a statement that O’Hara could be a player in Class 3 this season and avenges a 49-14 loss that ended the Celtics season in the district semifinals last year.

Big Winner

Mother Nature – For the second straight week the weather played havoc with games. More than half the games saw some sort of delay. One game was forced to be finished on Saturday while another never even got started and was moved to Saturday. In fact the Lee’s Summit West-Park Hill South game was moved up to avoid the weather and was called early as storms rolled across the Park Hill District Stadium with West leading 38-7 in the fourth quarter.
