DeSoto 52, Spring Hill 7
It was the Trevor Watts and Bryce Mohl show as DeSoto, ranked No. 2 in Kansas Class 4A, improved to 7-0 and 1-0 in district play before its showdown at No. 1 Bishop Miege next Friday.

Watts scored four touchdowns, two on the ground and two through the air. He finished with 83 yards on just two carries and caught five passes for 93 yards. His 75-yard touchdown run gave the Wildcats a 21-0 lead late in the first quarter.

Mohl, who scored on a 2-yard touchdown run in the first quarter, threw three touchdown passes in the second quarter as DeSoto took a 49-0 halftime lead. Mohl hit Watts for 36 yards, Connor Strouse for 65 yards and Watts again for 24 yards. Mohl finished 7-of-12 passing for 164 yards.

Braydon Brummer’s 50-yard interception return for a touchdown and a 26-yard field goal by Ethan Rodriguez accounted for the rest of DeSoto’s scoring.

The Wildcats were heading for their fourth shutout of the season before Spring Hill (1-6) scored their lone touchdown late in the fourth quarter on a long pass from Corbyn Meyers to Connor Zorn.

Olathe South 21, Leavenworth 14
Tyler Cavil’s 32-yard touchdown run with 9:30 left in the game was the difference for the Falcons, who notched their second win of the season.

After Leavenworth took an early 7-0 lead, Jamison Phelps tied the game on a 4-yard touchdown run late in the first quarter. The score remained tied through the second quarter and for most of the third quarter before Cavil scored on a 3-yard run to give Olathe South a 14-7 lead with 1:50 left in the third.

The Pioneers (3-4) tied the game with a touchdown early in the fourth quarter, but Cavil and Olathe South answered with the game-winner.

Sumner Academy 26, Wyandotte 21
TaVaughn Sappington rushed for 224 yards on 27 carries and scored two touchdowns as Sumner took a 20-0 halftime lead and held off Wyandotte, which was led by quarterback Torry Moore’s three touchdowns.

After Donell Bagley scored on a 1-yard run to put Sumner (3-3) on the board, Sappington scored on runs of 61 and 10 yards. Wyandotte (1-5) cut the Sabres’ lead to 20-14 in the third quarter on Moore’s 32-yard touchdown run and his 1-yard touchdown run.

Sumner got some breathing room in the fourth quarter when quarterback Dominic Lee hit Bagley with a 5-yard touchdown pass for a 26-14 lead. Moore’s 17-yard touchdown run then closed the gap to five. He finished with 143 yards on 15 carries.
