A pair of ranked teams – Park Hill (No. 8 Class 6) and Raytown (ninth-ranked in Class 5) – fell at home while Class 3 No. 2 Odessa had no trouble defending home turn as it rolled to another big win during the second week of MSHSAA football.

Oak Park 14, Raytown 7
Two second-half touchdowns propelled visiting Oak Park in a comeback win over Class 5 No. 9-ranked Raytown in each team’s KC Suburban Conference White opener.

Colton Tisthammer’s 5-yard touchdown run with 5:51 left proved to be the game winner for the Northmen (1-1). Quarterback Blake Bland’s keeper from inside the 1-yard-line put Oak Park on the scoreboard and tied the game in the final minute of the third.

Despite playing turnover-free, the Bluejays (1-1) were dominated in total plays (69-36) and possessed the ball just 11:46. Raytown was just 2 for 16 on third- and fourth-down conversions and committed 10 penalties.

Desmond Hutson’s 71-yard catch and run touchdown from Joe Campbell midway through the first quarter was all the Bluejays could muster – which was almost enough. Campbell had a hand in 190 of Raytown’s 200 total yards, passing for 148 and rushing for another 42.

Liberty 24, Park Hill 21
A second-half rally wasn’t enough to overcome a 17-point deficit as Blue Jays quarterback Alex Roush threw three touchdowns for Liberty in its win over Class 6 No. 8 Park Hill.

Roush hit Jack Lowery for a pair of long touchdowns in the second quarter to give Liberty (1-1) the 17-0 lead it carried deep into the third before the furious final 17 minutes that finally saw the Park Hill offense come to life.

With 2:45 left, Park Hill quarterback Ryan Graves connected on a 30-yard touchdown to Jaylin Noel and a two-point conversion to Joe Webb to pull the Trojans (0-2) within a field goal, but Karrell Simpson intercepted Graves with 92 seconds left.

Earlier, touchdown runs by Ryan Graves (4:59 left in the third quarter) and Payton Stanfield (1:17 into the fourth) cut the Trojans deficit to 17-13, but Roush’s 15-yard pass to Nathan Gray three minutes later proved to be enough in the end.

Odessa 67, Clinton 7
A committee of rushers, led by Dakota DeGraffenried’s three touchdowns and 97 yards, led the host Bulldogs – ranked second in Class 3 – to a second consecutive blowout win.

All of DeGraffenried’s touchdowns came within the first 13 minutes, while Jonas Bennett added two more touchdown rushes and caught another as Odessa (2-0) went into halftime ahead 61-0.

The opening play of the game foreshadowed what was to come for Clinton (0-2) when Odessa’s Bryley Ray returned the opening kickoff 92 yards for touchdown.

Cameron 24, East 8
A week after claiming its first win since 2015, the Dragons (2-0) have their first winning streak since 2013 behind Tyler Campbell’s 231 yards and two touchdowns passing.

Despite total offense and time of possession advantages, host East was undone by seven turnovers, including a fumble returned 47 yards for touchdown by Cameron Hedgpeth.

For East (0-2), David Wilson rushed for nearly 10 yards per carry and totaled 231, including the Bears’ only touchdown.

Raytown South 19, Winnetonka 7
Tavain Turner had touchdown runs of 1 yard and 49 yards to reverse a 7-6 halftime deficit for the visiting Cardinals (1-1) in the teams’ first KC Suburban Conference Blue matchup of the season.

Turner, a quarterback, led all rushers with 88 yards, while Winnetonka counterpart Javon Satterwhite passed for 267 yards and the game’s opening touchdown less than 90 seconds in, a 75-yarder to Jason Essex.

Jovon Ray responded to that touchdown by taking the ensuing kickoff back 86 yards for touchdown to close to 7-6.

Essex was the recipient of 144 of Satterwhite’s yards through the air, but the Griffins (1-1) couldn’t reach the end zone again.
