KSHSAA Covered’s Week 3 Football Rankings

By KSHSAA Covered Staff

 

TOPEKA, Kan. (KSHSAA Covered) – For the first time this season, every No. 1 in the KSHSAA Covered’s football rankings emerged from Friday night unscathed. And most did with relative ease.

Mill Valley (5A), St. Thomas Aquinas (4A), Andale (3A), Nemaha Central (2A), Inman (1A), Axtell (8M II) and Cunningham (6M) each posted wins by 28 points or more. Of that group, Axtell figured to get the best challenge on Friday night, traveling to Eight-Player Division I unbeaten Clifton-Clyde.

But the Eagles’ high-powered offense was too much for Clifton-Clyde and after being in a game early, leading 20-12 in the second quarter, Axtell exploded with 38 straight points to win 58-12.

Class 6A No. 1 Manhattan had its hands full on the road at Class 5A No. 4 Hays, trailing 14-10 at halftime. But the Indians clamped down on Hays in the second half, Indian quarterback Keenan Schartz threw for a career-high 204 yards and Manhattan escaped Hays with a 31-21 win.

The biggest showdown for last week’s No. 1s was Eight-Player Division I Hill City taking on Eight-Player Division II No. 3 Thunder Ridge. The ranked powers engaged in a defensive battle for three quarters with Hill City leading 14-6 at halftime and 20-14 at the end of the third.

The Ringnecks then erupted for 28 fourth-quarter points to pull away for a 48-22 win.

There was limited movement in the rankings below the No. 1s.

In Class 6A, 3-0 Gardner-Edgerton moved into the rankings at No. 5 after No. 3 Blue Valley lost to No. 4 Blue Valley Northwest 48-24.

In Class 5A, No. 3 Bishop Carroll and No. 4 Hays held their position despite losing. Carroll forged a late tie with Derby before seeing Panther standout Dylan Edwards break a game-winning 85-yard touchdown run to give Derby the 45-38 win.

No. 5 Kapaun Mt. Carmel fell out of the rankings after getting routed 41-14 by Wichita Northwest. The Crusaders were replaced by Hutchinson at the No. 5 spot.

In Class 4A, No. 3 McPherson and No. 5 St. James fell out of the rankings following losses to Junction City and Bishop Miege, respectively. Two-time defending champion St. James is 0-3 for the second straight season with its losses coming to Miege, 4A No. 1 St. Thomas Aquinas and 6A No. 3 (then No. 1) Blue Valley Northwest.

Eudora (No. 4) and Basehor-Linwood (No. 5) moved into the 4A rankings.

In Class 2A, two-time defending champion Rossville fell from the rankings after a 55-34 loss to 3A No. 3 Hayden dropped the Bulldawgs to 1-2. TMP-Marian moved into the rankings at No. 5 with Norton replacing Rossville at No. 4.

In Class 1A, St. Marys (1-2) dropped from the rankings after a loss to Silver Lake with Troy (3-0) moving in at No. 5.

In Eight-Player Division I, Chase County replaced Madison in the rankings after Madison lost to Lebo.

In Six-Player, Tescott moved into the rankings at No. 4 with Cheylin falling out.

The 3A and Eight-Player Division II rankings did not change.
