Maryville 42, Richmond 7
The Class 3 No. 1-ranked Spoofhounds took care of business at home, throttling Richmond to win a fourth-straight district championship.


Dakota Beemer combined for 220 yards and 3 TDs, while Trey Oglesby had a stellar night passing for Maryville (12-0).

The quarterback completed 9 of 14 passes for 251 yards and four touchdowns — two going to Beemer. Hunter Hayes and Chip Dunlap had the others for Maryville, which will play at Odessa next week in the quarterfinals. Odessa defeated Oak Grove 28-10.

Maryville went up early on Richmond — the last team to win at the Hound Pound — on Cole Phillips' fumble return for a TD. Maryville led 14-0 at the break.

The Spoofhounds went up 21-0 on Oglesby's first TD pass to Beemer in the third quarter, but Richmond's Trevon Alexander returned the kickoff 90 yards for a score, making it 21-7.

Oglesby hit Beemer for a TD strike and Beemer ran in for a TD to give Maryville a 35-7 lead going into the fourth.

Kearney 43, Platte County 3
The Class 4 No. 4-ranked Bulldogs had little problems picking up a second win this season over the Pirates.

Kearney scored at least one touchdown in every quarter on the way to a quarterfinal showdown with Hannibal.

Marcus Harris and Logan Hinck provided all the offense for the Bulldogs (11-1). Hinck ran for TDs of 1, 6 yards, while throwing a fourth-quarter touchdown. Harris, who ran for 202 yards, scored a pair of second-half TDs.

Kearney kicker Dawon Goepferich booted three field goals, including a 50-yarder in the second quarter, which made it 23-3. The only points for Platte County (8-4) came on a 53-yard field goal from Parker Lacina in the second quarter, which made it 10-3 at the time.
