S2 • SUNDAY • SEPTEMBER 15,2002 • THE HAYS DAILY NEWS PREP FOOTBALL IMP senior running back Mike Carlson is tackled by Hoisington senior Joey Gotten at the end of a 54-yard run in the ™Sring F^ at Lewis Field Stadium. Carlson's run set up a Monarch touchdown before the game was suspended due to lightning. TMP wins with passing game By NICK SCHWIEN HAYS DAILY NEWS Gene Flax likes his bread and butter. Now he likes his bread and butter — and maybe a little peanut butter, too. Flax, the seventh-year football n>coach at Thomas More Prep-Mar- •''lan.t'-is >k>hown'!for >his> patented ; i - toss-and-trap running attack. But Flax's game plan for this weekend's game was almost as wild as the weather. The TMP-Marian coach used a potent passing game to beat Mid- State Activities Association rival Hoisington, 25-6, in a game that was finished Saturday morning at Lewis Field Stadium after lightning suspended the game in the second quarter Friday night. "When we were in during the 1 rain delay, we knew what we had to do to beat them," said Flax, whose team waited for more an hour and a half Friday night as officials hoped for a break in the weather. "We felt we really had to throw the ball some, but the rain wasn't helping that any. We dropped'a couple in the rain, but that's no excuse. They still should have had them. But they were selling out on the run, and we knew that was going to happen." The victory gave the Monarchs their first 2-0 start since the 1991 season, when TMP-Marian grabbed a 2-0 win over Hoisington to win its second game of the season. Senior quarterback Jeff Keberlein, who passed for only 161 yards all of last season, completed 5-of-7 attempts in the game for 146 yards and two touchdowns. "We know we're capable of throwing the ball some," said Flax, whose team beat the Cardinals for the first time since the 1998 season. "It goes against my principles some to throw too much. But we know we're capable of doing that, 1 and our line stepped-up arid picked up the blitzers pretty well. Keberlein had some time." After Keberlein's 1-yard sneak with 6:38 to play in the second quarter gave the Monarchs a 6-0 lead Friday night in a driving rain storm, the game was suspended after the Monarchs botched the hold on the PAT try.. Hoisington went three-and-out on its first possession after the kickoff Saturday morning, and TMP-Marian took over at its own 46 after a punt. Senior Luke Dreiling booted a 27-yard field goal to push the lead to 9-0 with 1:06 left before halftime. Hoisington senior quarterback Joey Gotten was intercepted two plays into the next drive, and the Monarchs took over with only 13.5 seconds to play before half, j Keberlein dropped back and threw to senior running back Mike Carlson down the left sideline. Carlson picked up a key block by Dreiling and scored on the 47-yard pass just seconds before the break. Keberlein's pass to Dreiling was good for the 2-point conversion, giving the Monarchs a 17-0 lead. • TMP / SEE PAGE B3 Fast start not enough for Hays High in loss By EDWARD CARIFIO HAYS DAILY NEWS JUNCTION CITY — Friday the 13th turned into a nightmare for the Hays High School football team. Instead of having to face down Freddy Krueger, there was a whole backfield full of them. Using its multiple-running back attack, the Blue Jays slashed through the Hays High defense for 413 yards in total offense in a 39-6 win. Like any good horror movie, the game started off on a positive note for the Indians, who moved the ball 80 yards on their opening drive for a touchdown and 6-0 lead. Senior fullback Blake Wasinger scored from three yards out with 5:13 left in the first quarter — a drive of almost seven minutes. The 2-point conversion try failed. Hays High coach Kent Teeter said he was impressed with the team's first series. "I was really encouraged about it," Teeter said. "We talked about just getting better from last week, and I was really proud. It was a really good drive, it took off about seven minutes of clock, and we converted a couple third downs. I really thought we were on the right track." The Indians (0-2) were, 2-for-3 on third down conversions on the drive, and also were successful on fourth down. The Indians just kept pounding the ball away, having only one gain of over 10 yards, a 20-yard pickup on a sweep by senior Jake Sanders. Junction City (2-0) answered right back with a 65-yard touchdown drive of its own, capped by a nine-yard scoring run by junior Marques Singeltary. The kick by senior Chris Dupree — also the team's quarterback — failed to leave the game ties at 6-6. On HHS' next drive, the hor- rors began for the Indians. The Blue Jays stuffed the Indian offense, as they would for the rest of the game. A 22-yard punt return by junior Trenton Dixon set Junction City up on the HHS 30, and the Blue Jays scored five plays later for a 13-7 lead.' On the Indians' next drive, senior wideout Jude Fox fumbled on an end around, setting the Blue Jays up with another short field and another touchdown. Teeter said his team has to overcome adversities like the lost fumble a lot better. • HHS / SEE PAGE B3 Prep Scores Friday Abilene 14, Minneapolis 6 Andovar Central 4t, Andale 20 Arkansas City 14, McPherson 6 Atwood 20, Oakley 14 Axtell 44, Highland 20 Baldwin 24, Paola 6 Beloit 81, Ellsworth 0 Bern 48, Southeast Consolidated (Neb.) 0 Bishop Ward 35, Ottawa 7 Brewster 32, Jennings 12 Bucklin 32, Maviland 20 Burlington 12, Eureka 0 Bufrton26, Hope18(OT) CaldwelM 2, Dexter 0' Cedar Vale 30, Altoona-Midway 6 Central Heights 21, Marmaton Valley 0 • Centralla 30, Clifton-Clyde 6 Centre 45, St. Xavler 0 Chapman 27, Medicine Lodge 7 Cheney 41, Bluesteme Cherryvale 56, Osewego 12 Clmarron 34, Meade 6 Claflln 47, St. John 0 Clearwaler 27, Circle 0 Coffeyville 14, lola 7 Concordia 19, Wamego 12 Conway Springs 19, Hesston 13 Deerfleld 48, Moscow 0 Derby 55, Wichita Campus 13 Dlghton 36, Wilson 20 Dodge City 3, Wichita East 0 Downs 40, Eastern Heights 18 Ellis 34, Stockton 0 Ell-Saline 39, Canton-Galva 6 Garden City 20, Great Bend 19 Garden Plain 39, Balls Plaine 0 Gardner-Edgerton 21, Clay Center 6 Girard 26, Erie 20 Goessel 70, Chase 24 Golden Plains 40, Grinned 8 Goodland 39, Holcomb 0 Hanston 54, Rolla 6 Haven'28, Lyons 13 Herlngton 34, Burlingame 6 Herndon 38, Arthur (Neb.) 36 Hlllcrest-North Central 26, Waconda East- Tlpton 24 Hoxle 28, Colby 20 Hugoton 42, Southwestern Heights 14 Hulchlnson 23, Wlnfleld 6 Hutchlnson Trinity 28, Sedgwlck 20 Ingalls 36, South Gray 14 Jetmore 48, Ashland 0 Junction City 39, Hays High 6 Kensington 8, Logan 6 La Crasse 44, Osborne 8 Lewis 56, Fowler 6 Linn 60, Klckapoo Nation 12 Little River 26, Falrfleld 8 Lyndon 21, Jayhawk-LInn 7 Macksville 23, Otis-Bison 18 Madison 14, Hartford 12 Maize 24, Buhler 6 Marysville21, AtchlsonO Pleasanton 42, Miami, Mo. 14 Mlnneola 57, Greensburg 18 Moundrldge 14, Inman 6 Mulvane 16, Andovar 0 Ness City 16, Satanta7 Newton 28, El Dorado 0 Nlckerson 9, Hlllsboro 7 Norton 42, Plalnvilla 0 Norwich 50, Cunningham 6 Obertln 57, Qulnter 6 Olalhe Christian 58, St. Joseph Christian 56 Olpe 54, Remington 0 Palco 32, Northern Valley 24 (OT) Pawnee Heights 20, Bazlne-Ransom 0 Peabody 19, Halstead 7 Phllllpsburg 34, Hill City 0 Pike Valley 52, Blue Valley Randolph 6 Pratt Skyline 72, Attica 26 Pretty Prairie 38, Wichita Word of Life 30 Rosa Hill 35, Goddard 21 Royal Valley 6, Northern Heights 0 Russell 20, Belleville 6 Sabetha 41, Nemaha Valley 0 Sallna Sacred Heart 59, Council Grove 7 Sallna South 14, Sallna Central 7 Santa Fe Trail 41, Immaculate 0 Sharon Springs 26, Healy 0 SM East 44, Leavenworth 16 Solomon 12, Lincoln 6 South Central 46, Spearvllle 8 Southeast of Saline 21, Marion 6 Southern Cloud 48, Mankato 2 St. John's-Belolt 26, Jewell-White Rock 18 St. Paul 54, Chetopa 8 Stanton County 7, Lakin 0 Sterling 28, Elllnwood 21 Sublette 25, Syracuse 0 Sumner Academy 32, Spring Hill 22 i Sylvan Unified 26, Qulvlra Heights 22 Thayer 53, Elk Valley 8 TMP-Marian 25, Hoisington 6 Tonganoxie 21, Bonner Springs 7 Topeka Highland Park 23, Wyandotte 12 Trego 28, Smith Center 6 Tribune-Greeley Co. 24, Weskan 0 Troy 22, Pleasant Ridge 14 Turner 27, Schlagle 26 ' Ulysses 33, Lamed 21 Valley Center 53, Augusta 0 . > Victoria 46, Lucas-Luray 0 Wakefleld 64, St. John's Military 6 Washington 28, Bennlngton 0 Wellington 27, Klngman 7 WestElk19,ChaseCounty7 White City 32, Tescolt 22 < Wichita Collegiate 48, Smoky Valley 14 • Wichita Kapaun Ml Carmel 27, Wichita West 10 Wichita Northwest 17, Wichita Heights 7 Wichita South 20, Wichita North 19 (3 OT) Wichita Sunrise Academy 54, Topeka Calr Paravel 8 Palco ends long losing skid to NV Trego snaps long streak for Smith Center, 28-6 BY THE HAYS DAILY NEWS ALMENA — The Palco prep football team claimed one of its biggest wins in several years, knocking off Cheyenne Conference rival Almena-Northern Valley on the Huskies' home field.

The Leopards' offense, led by strong running performances from seniors Jerrod Morgan and Ricky Musgrave, helped La Crosse dominate Osbprne in total yards, 441-74. Morgan finished with 132 yards rushing and Musgrave had 133. Still... "Tonight, the locker room felt like a loss," La Crosse coach Bill Keeley said. "The kids were disappointed, and maybe they learned something from this. Even though we won, the kids were down. This may tell something about them." Most of the La Crosse frustration came in the first 28 minutes of the game, when the Leopards committed all of their turnovers. The only thing that turned out to be good for Osborne (0-2) out of all the turnovers was a 95-yard fumble return for a touchdown by junior Craig Mans in the first quar- ter. Other than that, Osborne couldn't capitalize. La Crosse (2-0) struck first, on the opening drive of the game. The Leopards used a 39-yard pass from senior quarterback Michael Reifschneider to senior wideout Brian Barta to put them at the Osborne 5. On the next play, the two hooked up again for a 5-yard TD with 6:49 left in the first quarter. The 2-point conversion failed. On their next possession the Leopards were threatening to score again, but Reifschneider's pitch on the option at the Bulldog 5 led to Mans' return for a score. The 2-point conversion gave Osborne the lead. "We've never had that problem with turnovers," Keeley said. "It just all snowballed on us." Osborne held an 8-6 lead until Musgrave scored from two yards out with 3:57 left in the first half. Reifschneider ran in the 2-point conversion. La Crosse got the ball back a few plays later after Reifschneider intercepted a pass and returned it to the Bulldog 40. From there, he connected with Barta for a touchdown on the next play. After La Crosse fumbled on its first two possessions of the second half, Morgan broke a 76-yard run up the middle for a touch- clown. The 2-point conversion made it 30-8. In the fourth quarter, Musgrave scored on a 9-yard burst, and Reifschneider fired a 9-yard strike to sophomore Andy Schroter for the final score with 2:27 left in the game. Reifschneider finished 6-of-12 passing for 113 yards and three TDs. Barta had three receptions for 84 yards. Mans went 5-of-16 through the air for the Bulldogs, for 36 yards. He threw two interceptions. Senior Tylor Wolters led Osborne in rushing with 28 yards on five carries. • La Crosse 44, Osborne 8 • Osborne(0-2) , 8 00 0—8 La Crosse (2-0) 6 16 8 14 — 44 La Crosse — Barta 5 pass from Reifschneider (run failed).
