KANSAS SEMI-FINALS

BUTLER COUNTY 35, GARDEN CITY  28  - Garden gave the Grizzlies all they could handle, leading 21-7 at halftime, but BC roared back behind RB Joseph Harris (21-147) to capture the victory.  GCC led in most statistical categories and Andre Hall ran for 204 yards on 39 carries, even outgaining BC 405 to 301.

COFFEYVILLE 34, HUTCHINSON 3 – Lee Baker and Arkee Whitlock rushed for a combined 286 yards behind the blocking of TE Gabe Morse and OT Paul Soliai (9 pancakes).  Baker had his 8th straight 100-yard game with 24 for 148 and Whitlock chipped in with 21-138.  Jeff Edwards kicked 4 field goals.  The contest was tougher than the score would appear to make it.

The Kansas Championship Game is SUNDAY AT BUTLER COUNTY, 1:30 p.m.

RECORDS SET –

LACKAWANNA WR Steve Banks set 4 school records in 37-13 win over Alfred St.  He now owns TDs in one season receiving (10), career (16), yardage (680) career (1,031)…PASADENA's QB Luke Sniewski set a single-game PCC record by completing 22 of 45 passes for a record 433 yards and 2 TDs in loss to El Camino.  Fr. WR Kris Riggins had 8 catches 207 yrds, 6 KORs 148 yards and 355 all-purpose yards.  The 207 is the 2nd most in a game and his 87-yard TD reception the 3rd longest.  WR Blake Garrett also had 6 catches for 166…JOLIET DE Rob Ninkovich, 6-3, 238 recorded sack no. 16 in 34-13 upset of Harper to become the single-season leader.

NAPKIN NOTES –

COMPTON RB Rod McNeal had a big day vs. Glendale.  He ran for 137 yards on 17 carries, and, while playing QB, went 5 for 7 for 33 yards.  The Tarters have lost starting QB Brandon Brooks with season-ending injuries…SNOW was penalized 20times for 186 yards, but beat Mesa 19-15 in a game that saw OT Duce Lutui, 6-5, 350, gain offensive MVP honors…REEDLEY continues to roll now that QB Robert Johnson has regained his health.  He went 23 of 31 for 286 and 3 TDs in 41-7 win over Merced and added 46 rushing…Stat ace Ron Siegel says SAN FRANCISCO had 19 alums playing on D1 teams recently…SADDLEBACK limited Riverside to minus-3 yards rushing behind LB Jimmy Ellingson's 9 tackles and a blocked  punt for a safety…BUTTE trounced Redwoods despite 20 penalties for 207 yards...MT. SAN ANTONIO had a 21-3 halftime lead and was going for a game-clinching short FG, but a CERRITOS lineman got his hand on the ball and blocked it and it was returned for a winning Falcon TD.  It was the Mounties' first loss of the season and a dreadful way to lose. 

MINNESOTA PLAYOFFS start Saturday with HIBBING @ ROCHESTER and MINNESOTA WEST @ MESABI RANGE, Both at 1pm.
MISSISSIPPI gets underway with PEARL RIVER at N.W. MISSISSIPPI and MISSISSIPPI DELTA @ HINDS. 
TEXAS: BLINN @ NEO (2pm) ; KILGORE @ TYLER
