Wildcats crush Harmon for second straight win

One of the keys to rebuilding a program is to start winning those games you're supposed to win.

For the Washington Wildcats, this was accomplished Thursday night.

In a game broadcast by Metro Sports in Kansas City, the Wildcats put the Harmon Hawks on the endangered species list, winning 32-0 at home.

With the win, the Wildcats improve to 2-2 on the season, while Harmon falls to 0-4.

The story once again was the youth of the Wildcats.

Sophomore quarterback Kalem Harrison played the best game of his young career. He finished 9-of-15 in the game, passing for 161 yards and three touchdown passes.

Harrison also scored on the defensive end, intercepting a pass and returning it for a touchdown early in the third quarter to extend Washington's lead to 26-0.

Wide receiver Shakir Love had two touchdown receptions. He had two receptions for 42 yards in the game.

Along with the passing game, the Wildcats absolutely hammered Harmon with its rushing attack. The Wildcats finished with over 200 rushing yards. Marvin Bowens scored the game's opening touchdown to give Washington a 7-0 lead.

Javeon Williams finished the night with 151 yards on just 16 carries, as the Wildcats line dominated the Hawks' defensive line most of the night.

Washington's defense controlled Harmon all night.

The Hawks had negative yardage for most of the game and only crept into positive yardage late into the fourth quarter.

Washington snaps a three-game losing streak against the Hawks.

It's also the first time since 2008 the Wildcats have won two games inside the Kansas City Kansas - Atchison League and only the second time since 2006 the Wildcats have started league play 2-0.
