Leavenworth managed to score in the final quarter. Quarterback Eddie McLaughlin, who had been roughed up all game, scrambled to his right, and saw an opening in the defense and ran down the sideline for a 79-yard touchdown. Peyton White converted the kick, to complete the scoring.

After the game Dunn spoke about the offense.

“We really just tried to take what they gave us,” Dunn said. “If they were defending the pass, the running game was working. When they gave us the pass, we just took advantage of the opportunities.”

Then the sophomore quarterback, smiled and said: “I love playoff football, it’s a great feeling to get a win as a team, it’s exciting. I can’t wait to move on.”

Leavenworth finishes their season with a record of 5-4. Blue Valley Southwest, improves their record to 3-6.
