Blue Springs comeback stuns rival South
By John Beaudoin The Blue Springs Journal
It’s quite a statement when a Blue Springs football player marks a game down as his most memorable. It’s an even bigger proclamation when the head coach says it.
“This is the most special win I’ve been a part of as a coach,” said Kelly Donohoe, in his 11th year as the head coach for the Wildcats, after his team erased a third quarter 28-6 deficit.
As Donohoe huddled with his team near mid-field following a remarkable 42-35 double overtime win in the opening week of Class 6A district play over rival Blue Springs South, the emotions were free-flowing.
“We talked about being warriors, right?” he asked his team. “Are we a bunch of warriors?”
The enthusiastic post-game talk followed a stunning turn of events that displayed Blue Springs’ resolve to not lose and Blue Springs South’s attempt to just end the game.
The two teams traded scores for most of the second half as the Wildcats slowly mounted their comeback.
