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
“They are our rival game. Playing them in any sport is always going to be close. Beating them and coming down the wire, a lot of character was built.” Raymore-Peculiar’s James Sappington after his team’s 43-35 win over Belton.
Stat line of the night
Logan Hinck, Kearney quarterback – 15 of 22, 272 yards, 4TDs
The Kearney quarterback had a big night in his first start leading the Bulldogs to a runaway 55-15 win at St. Joseph Central.
Call of the night
Blue Springs South and Park Hill locked up in a defensive battle and scoring was scarce. South led 7-0 in the fourth quarter when Adam Cofield powered over to give the Jaguars what would end up being the winning score. South’s defense held in the final minutes to earn a 14-7 win.
Team of the night
Staley – The Falcons dominated Blue Springs 35-0 to open the season in impressive fashion. Staley earned their third win all-time against the Wildcats and are now one of the few teams in the Metro who can boast a winning record over Blue Springs at 3-1. This week the Falcons travel to Raymore-Peculiar to take on a good Panthers team.
Bounce Back Wins – Several teams came into 2015 looking to rebound from tough 2014 campaigns. Cameron, Lee’s Summit North and North Kansas City combined for two wins last season but after the first week the programs are 3-0.
