Game Highlights - Atchison vs Piper

by David Brox, davidbrox@shukc.com

The Atchison Redmen had to feel like it was ground hog day as they started the game off this week against Piper as they did against Schlagle.  A lengthy and effective drive killed by a turnover for TD by Colton Beebe.  While that TD was called back on a penalty it set the tone for what would be a long night for the Redmen.

"Colton Beebe & Blake Martin were tough up the middle, and blitzing" said Coach Brindle of the Pirates. 

The Piper Pirates took full advantage of most if not all of the miscues by the Redmen.  Keaton Cofield had a long fumble recovery for the Pirates second TD and the flood gates opened in route to a 38-6 final score.

"Our coaching staff and Senior leadership helped our guys focus on what we needed to do to win this game...after losing last week to a great 5A squad, with homecoming activities, and the 1st game that actually counts on the table... Good to see that from young people." Coach Brindle

The Pirates look to make it consecutive playoff appearances this Thursday against Sumner Academy.  KCK Preps will not broadcast this matchup only due to Metro Sports calling the game.
