Team of the night
Liberty – The Jays found themselves in a dogfight with Blue Springs that went to overtime. The Wildcats would score first to take a 42-35 lead. Liberty would score and go for two and the win. They got the conversion and earned a big week 1 win.
Hogan Prep Academy – The Rams went on the road and came home 40-14 win over the Minutemen. In a season where Hogan Prep only has home games any win on the road is big and a win at a Missouri River Valley Conference East power is big to start the season.
