Central had two different tries to take an early lead over Lee’s Summit in the first half.

On both tries, the Tigers’ defense prevented anything. That set the mood in a tight contest that went in favor of the road team.

With NFL prospect Drew Lock standing on the sideline, his alma mater Lee’s Summit defeated Central 15-6 on Friday night at Noyes Field.

Central got inside the red zone on its first drive but it stalled out. Central (1-5, 1-3 Suburban Red) received back-to-back penalties and Lee’s Summit stopped it on 4th-and-20 for its first takeaway.

Two plays later, Central recovered a fumble, but the team gave it right back to the Tigers on the next play.

Lee’s Summit also stopped Central on a fourth down at the 10-yard line at the end of the first quarter.

Turnovers happened multiple times on both sides of the field.

Lee’s Summit quarterback Kaia Tupinio threw an interception in the end zone to junior Will Austin to stop a scoring opportunity, this time in the second quarter.

The Tigers turned the ball over on a fumble and an interception. Central gave the ball up twice on fumbles and twice on fourth downs.
