After playing teams from the central and western parts of Kansas to open the season, Olathe East and Olathe South play a district rival in week No. 2.

South comes in off an impressive 24-2 win at Hutchinson. The Falcons defense didn’t give up any points and Jake Seurer led the offense to a solid performance. South will need its defense to play well again because East’s rushing attack looked in full form during the first week of the season.

East stopped Garden City 26-14 to open its season and looked like a team that could be a threat again in the Sunflower League and in Class 6A.

This game could come down to which defense is able to get off the field quickly and maybe grab a turnover or two along the way.

The game will be broadcast live on KSMO 62 starting at 7:05 p.m.
