OTHER ACTION: Washington claims KCKAL lead, Mill Valley crushes Bonner Springs

By NICK SLOAN, NJSloan212@gmail.com

Here are short recaps for additional action tonight across Kansas City, Kan., and the Kaw Valley League.

WASHINGTON 26, Sumner Academy 21

Ladies and gentlemen, your leaders of the Kansas City Kansas -Atchison League are the Washington Wildcats.

For the first time since 2007, the Wildcats are 3-0 to open league play, defeating Sumner Academy Friday night. They are the only undefeated team in the KCKAL following the fifth week of the season.

Once again, the story of the night was the fight of the Wildcats team. After leading early in the first half, the Wildcats overcame two separate deficits in the second half to pull of the win - the team's third straight victory.

Javeon Williams scored multiple touchdowns for the Wildcats as Washington's rushing attack continued to roll downhill.

Washington improves to 3-2 on the season, while Sumner Academy falls to 0-5 on the year.


Mill Valley 49, BONNER SPRINGS 12

Six-packs are not to be encouraged for high school students - unless of course it refers to a six touchdown game.

Mill Valley Jaguars quarterback Skyler Windmiller had six touchdowns against Bonner Springs, including four in the first quarter alone.

Windmiller passed for 170 yards and four touchdowns in the first quarter, as Mill Valley opened up a 28-6 lead on the Braves.

He wrapped up his game 17-of-25 for 271 yards and six touchdown passes.
Jaguars wide receiver J.L. Hatch had touchdown receptions of 67, 42 and 23 yards in the game.

Bonner Springs dug itself into a hole. Following Mill Valley's opening touchdown, the Braves fumbled on their first offensive play of the game. The Jags cashed it in for a touchdown, opening up a 14-0 lead.

Jordan Jackson had 88 passing yards in the game, along with 163 rushing yards for the Braves. His first quarter rushing touchdown pushed the Braves to within a 14-6 margin.

That's as close as it got, however.


TONGANOXIE 30, Bishop Ward 16

Tonganoxie quarterback Tyler Ford had a big night in the air.

He finished with 317 passing yards for the Chieftains, as Tonganoxie scored the game's first 27 points of the night to improve to 2-3 on the season.

Cole Holloway opened up the scoring with a two-yard touchdown.

From there, it was big play after big play for Ford.

Ford had a 55-yard touchdown run to extend Tonganoxie's lead to 13-0. In the third quarter, Ford found Shane Levy on a 90-yard touchdown pass and connected on a 32-yard score to Eric Tate in the third quarter.

Holloway finished with 109 yards, while Ford had over 400 combined yards in the Chieftains victory.


Atchison 39, HARMON 6

For the Atchison Redmen, it was another successful trip to Kansas City, Kan.

A week after defeating Wyandotte, Atchison defeated Harmon for the third straight season.

Tanner Huntington passed for four touchdowns of 19, 17, 51 and 15 as Atchison cruised to a victory over the winless Hawks.

With the win, Atchison improves to 4-1 on the season and 2-1 in the KCKAL.

Atchison scored the game's first 39 points - all of which coming before the midway point of the third quarter.

The Redmen hosts Schlagle next week in a huge game with KCKAL ramifications.
