A spate of high scoring conference blowouts highlight a roundup of the other Kansas City-area games played during Week 4 in Kansas.

Basehor-Linwood 50, Shawnee Heights 0
A stellar defensive performance and a well-rounded offensive output over the larger Class 5A Thunderbirds (2-2, 1-1 United Kansas Conference) could propel the Class 4A Basehor-Linwood (3-1, 2-1) into next week’s Kpreps.com Kansas Rankings Top 5.

The visiting Bobcats gave up just 80 yards of offense, forced four turnovers — two of them returned for touchdown —  and didn’t allow a third- or fourth-down conversion in the rout.
