Varsity Olathe North 17 – Olathe NW 14
Big game between two Olathe rival schools as it usually is, was held at CBAC October 14th. Entering the contest, the Eagles have only 1 league win under their belt and the Ravens with 2 wins in league play. At this point, win or lose, raises many questions and speculation of where will each team be seeded for post season play. This is a much anticipated game by players and fans that did not disappoint for our Eagles!
Eagle injuries continue to limit them in many ways as they progress through the regular season but that didn’t seem to be an issue against the Ravens. Although a fairly low scoring game, the Eagles defense kept the Ravens on their heals the entire game and eventually outlasting the Ravens in a 17-14 victory. Ravens coming off of a devastaing 0-35 loss to Lawrence Free State, struggled with their offense again against the Eagles.
The Eagles allowed the Ravens to score in the first and second quarter but the Eagles dominated the game. Setting the Eagles up for their win was #26 Devin Stoker’s interception. #32 kicker Riley Alderman had his best game of the season, scoring 5 of the team total point by making every extra point attempt and also kicking the crucial 24 yard game winning field goal in the 4th quarter.
