Maize 45, Newton 0
MAIZE — It may be cold consolation for the Newton High School football team, but the Railer offense couldn’t do what three other teams could do against Maize Friday at K.T. Woodman Stadium in Maize — and that was score.
The Railers fell to the Eagles 45-0 in Ark Valley-Chisholm Trail League Division I play — the fourth straight shutout for Maize. Newton is shut out for the first time this season, falling to 1-3, 0-3 in AV-CTL I play.
Caden Cox rushed for 106 yards on 17 carries with five touchdowns. Caleb Grill hit 12 of 19 passes for 155 yards with an interception.
Newton was led by Colton Davis who had 24 carries for 86 yards rushing and hit eight of 21 passes for 70 yards.
Salina Central 62, Hutchinson 20
SALINA — Salina Central’s offense is playing about as well as anyone could possibly expect.
Anyone except senior tailback Taylon Peters.
“Every week we get better,” Peters said Friday night. “Who knows, the sky’s the limit.”
Peters and his Mustangs teammates were above the stratosphere against Hutchinson, piling up 467 total yards, including 345 rushing, and rolling to a convincing 62-20 Ark Valley Chisholm Trail League I victory before a large homecoming crowd at Salina Stadium.
Peters was the ringleader, scampering for 256 yards rushing on 22 carries and six touchdowns.
Quarterback Jackson Kavanagh had another huge game, completing 8 of 10 passes for 122 yards and two touchdowns — all in the first half.
Peters said that only makes his job easier.
“We don’t have to rely just on me,” said Peters, who carried the ball 22 times and averaged 11.6 yards per carry. “We have athletes all over the field that we can throw to. You never know who he’s going to go to because we’ve great guys all around the field.”
The victory raises Central’s record to 3-1 — the first time the Mustangs have been 3-1 since 2011. It was their second consecutive win and first over the Salthawks since 2014.
Campus 22, Salina South 7
HAYSVILLE — Another stellar defensive effort and another loss.
It has become an all-to-familiar refrain for the Salina South Cougars.
After giving up a touchdown to start the game, the Cougars held the Campus in check for better part of three quarters Friday night but it wasn't enough as the Colts pulled away late for a 22-7 Ark Valley Chisholm Trail League Division I victory.
The Cougars trailed just 8-7 after three quarters, but were unable to generate any offense in the second half, managing just 31 yards total after the break with the only first down coming on a penalty.
After spotting Campus (3-1, 2-1 AVCTL) an early 8-0 advantage, the Cougars had a chance to take the lead just before halftime with the ball on the Colts' 15-yard line. But on first down, Campus' Tyler Kahmann stepped in front of Ty Garrett to pick off Terran Galloway's pass at the front of the end zone, killing the threat with 13 seconds to go.
Derby 24, Bishop Carroll 6
WICHITA — The Derby Panthers remained unbeaten with a 24-6 win over Bishop Carroll Friday in Wichita.
Hunter Igo hit seven of 18 passes for Derby for 111 yards and a touchdown. Igo added 72 yards rushing and a score. Tre Washington rushed for 93 yards on 18 carries. Davin Simms caught a touchdown pass. Derby also scored when Cade Lindsey returned a blocked punt for a touchdown. Jackson Syring hit a 24-yard field goal.
Carroll’s Cade Becker hit 30 of 34 passes for 150 yards with a touchdown and an interception. Mason Baalman had 56 yards receiving, including a 14-yard touchdown catch.
Carroll falls to 2-2.
