Darrian Miller ran wild, and first-year starting quarterback Kyle Brown looked like a seasoned veteran.

And the Wildcats’ usually stellar defense slowed down Lee’s Summit’s dynamic duo of Corbin Berkstesser and Sam Sealer just enough to help coach Kelly Donohoe claim his 100th career victory at Blue Springs following an offensive-minded 69-42 victory over the visiting Tigers.

“The numbers don’t mean anything,” Donohoe said Friday night after the Wildcats improved to 3-2 overall with a win in its Suburban Big Six opener. “No. 100 will mean something to me some day when I’m finished coaching. The things I will always remember are the players, the relationships with my different teams and coaches and the way our young men rise to the occasion on Friday nights.”

Miller, who had 135 yards on his first five carries, finished the night with four touchdowns and 267 yards and Brown was a near-perfect 9-of-11 for 143 yards and two scores through the air and one score on the ground.

The Wildcats needed all the offense they could muster as Berkstresser was 20-of-40 for 294 yards and five touchdowns while Sealer hauled in 17 receptions for 269 yards and four scores. Berkstresser even got in on the aerial act, catching a late 5-yard touchdown pass from Davis McElroy.

“It was a big offensive night for both teams,” said Miller, who averaged more than 11 yards per carry and scored on runs of 29, 28, 65 and 2 yards.
