Complete Box Score and stats

Park Hill turned a one-score game into a one-sided affair with 22 unanswered points in the second quarter of their 34-14 win over No. 9 Raymore-Peculiar on Friday night at Park Hill District Stadium.

Park Hill scored the only points of the first quarter on fourth down from deep inside Panther territory. Quarterback Ryan Graves took it in from 11 yards out to give the Trojans the 6-0 lead.

Just when the action appeared to have stalled, the Trojans exploded with back-to-back TD bombs to take a commanding lead.

Graves connected with Jaylin Noel for 52 yards and the second score of the night with 7:14 to play in the half. After a successful two-point conversion, run in by Corey Bradford, it was 14-0.

On the very next possession, Graves threw his second TD to Payton Stanfield, who beat the defense for 39 yards on the play.

The Trojan run continued into the half as Graves threw yet another TD pass, this time to Davis Suppes, giving the hosts a 28-0 halftime edge.

"Every week we feel like we're growing as a team," Park Hill head coach Josh Hood said. "The second quarter was really big. We were able to attack some areas where we thought we could have success. We're still a work in progress and hopefully we'll continue to improve."

Still trailing by 28, Ray-Pec got on the board at the 10:55 mark of the fourth quarter. On fourth down, Panther quarterback Grant Miller hit Je'Von Miller for the six-yard score to make it 28-7.

Ray-Pec got the ball back, but any hopes of a late rally were dashed as Park Hill senior defensive back DaShaun Powell came up with the pick six to put the Trojans up 34-7.

The Panthers added a late score on a 29-yard pass from Conrad Hawley to Devonte Johnson to account for the final margin.

The Trojans finished with 354 yards of total offense led by Graves, who was 13-22 for 199 yards and Noel's seven receptions for 102 yards.

Brandon Rayos rushed 122 yards on 22 carries to pace the Panthers.

Park Hill (3-2) travels to Fort Osage next week, while Ray-Pec (3-2) hosts Blue Springs.
