Chisman, Oak Grove, LS West grab big wins
By The Examiner staff
William Chrisman has its first win under new coach Scorpio Horn, as the Bears jumped out to a 12-0 lead and hung on for a 20-9 road victory over North Kansas City Friday night.
“We were able to play football on both sides of the ball,” Horn said. “Our defense played unbelievable, got big stops, and our offense made timely plays.”
Chrisman quarterback Gannon Ogle completed just 5 of 14 passes for 142 yards, but two completions went for touchdowns, including a 93-yard strike to Rasean Ellis on a slant pattern with 2:59 left in the game to seal the win and improve to 1-4.
Ogle connected with James Bailey on a 16-yard scoring pass with 7:50 left in the first half to put the Bears (1-4, 1-3) ahead 6-0. The extra point kick, though, was blocked. Running back D’Vontae Brown made it 12-0 early in the third quarter on a 22-yard touchdown run.
After a North Kansas City safety cut it to 12-2, the Hornets got an 11-yard scoring run from Fasil Kassahun and the extra point to make it 12-9 with 2:54 left in the third quarter.
But the Bears held on, and Ogle’s big pass to Ellis and Bailey’s two-point conversion run iced the victory.
The Bears defense forced five turnovers and held the Hornets to just 193 total yards. Brown finished with 55 yards and a TD on 20 carries, and Bailey added 42 yards on 12 carries.
OAK GROVE 34, ODESSA 21: Oak Grove turned a 14-all halftime tie into a 27-14 lead and won its Missouri River Valley Conference West opener at previously unbeaten Odessa.
“It was a classic Odessa versus Oak Grove game – very physical and hard-hitting,” Panthers coach Pat Richard said after his team improved to 4-1 overall. “(The Bulldogs) did a great job of playing very solid defense and they executed what they wanted to do.
“It was a back-and-forth type of game. Our kids stepped up when they had too and made the plays.”
LEE’S SUMMIT WEST 56, LEE’S SUMMIT NORTH 21: University of Missouri recruit Ryan Williams ran for 139 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries and Brice Kreikemeier completed 11 of 14 passes for 290 yards and three scores as Class 6 No. 1-ranked Lee’s Summit West routed crosstown rival Lee’s Summit North.
North quarterback Nathan Webb was 8 of 22 for 109 yards and two scores but threw two interceptions. Duane Hampton ran for 77 yards on just seven carries and Chase Swisher had 71 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries to lead the ground game as the Broncos dropped to 1-4.
Blake Burau caught four passes for 149 yards for West, which stayed unbeaten at 5-0.
