Argonia-Attica loses in last second in LaCrosse to finish at 8-2

Sumner Newscow report — Argonia-Attica scored a touchdown with 49 seconds left to give the Titans a 56-52 lead in the Class 1A 8-man Division 1 second-round playoffs. There was too much time on the clock.

LaCrosse would drive the length of the field and scored on a 5-yard pass completion from Caden Morgan to Gage Burk with one second left to knock out A&A 58-56.

It is hard to fathom a more heart-breaking way to end the season. A&A finished the year at 8-2.

This game combined for 114 points, had 17 touchdowns and six of them in the fourth quarter.  It was old-school playground football where the last team that scored was going to win.

Victoria outlasts Caldwell 58-52 to end the season and the Bluejay football era

Sumner Newscow report — The Caldwell season came to an end in Victoria with a 58-52 loss. Thus ends the era of the Caldwell Bluejays, who will be merging with South Haven next season.

The Bluejays could not pull off a game-winning drive late in a contest where there was plenty of scoring.

Caldwell never led in the game and was down at one point in the second quarter 36-14. But it would come back twice thereafter to tie Victoria, and was hoping for a trifecta late.

For all the game’s scoring there was just one touchdown in the fourth quarter and that came on a Brody Perkins six-yard run to cut the Victoria lead from 58-44 to 58-52 after the Dawson Bristor two-point conversion.

Conway Springs is victorious over Plainville 27-14, Inman is next

Sophomore Brayden Kunz scores 3 touchdowns and rushes for 159 to lift Conway Springs to victory.

by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Three first-half Plainville turnovers buoyed Conway Springs to a 27-14 victory in the second round of the Class 1A playoffs at Cardinal Stadium.

It now sets up a rematch with Inman, the No. 1 team in the Class 1A-west bracket, next weekend.

Conway Springs built a 21-0 first-half lead and scored one more touchdown midway through the third quarter to open up a 27-0 advantage. Plainville then rallied of sorts scoring on two consecutive possessions to pull within two touchdowns, 27-14.

The Cardinals were forced into a fourth-and-4 situation on the next possession with 5:50 play. After great deliberation in which both teams called timeout, Conway Springs went with the quick kick, giving Plainville the ball the Conway Springs 49 with two timeouts to spare.

The Conway Springs defense would stiffen forcing the run-eccentric Plainville offense to pass on a fourth-and-11 that fell incomplete. Conway Springs then used the legs of Braden Kunz to move all the way to the Plainville 1 and would end the game in victory formation.

“I told the boys at that timeout that we are going to win this game with defense, and that’s what they did,” said Matt Biehler, Conway Springs head football coach.
