Liberty at Lee’s Summit North (Friday Night Lights Tour Stop)
The Liberty Blue Jays come into Lee’s Summit on a hot streak winners of three straight. One of the wins was over defending state champion Staley. The Broncos are riding a nice winning streak of their own the last 5 weeks. In a close battle the host Broncos end up with a win here.
Rockhurst at Lee’s Summit West (Pub Pick of the week)
Rockhurst has been in this position before and LS West is hoping for a different outcome than last year when the Hawklets came to Lee’s Summit and ended the Titans season. Expect a high scoring outcome as both teams have put up over 40 points to win recently. In a close finish it’s the Hawklets leaving with a victory here.
Knob Noster at Summit Christian Academy
The SCA Eagles at 8-2, host the high flying Panthers who have put 140 points on the board in just the last 3 weeks. The Eagles have been soaring to victory thanks to their high powered offense. Expect to be enough on this night as the Eagles advance in the playoffs.
Blue Springs South at Blue Springs
In a tasty rematch of a game played on Sept. 21st this edition will be closer than the first when the Wildcats scored a 38-14 win over their city rival. The Jaguars are playing better now but not enough to win this one as the Wildcats move on in the playoffs.
Belton at Raytown
The Raytown Blue Jays just beat Belton 3 weeks ago 48-14 and now must do it again to keep their season going. This rematch will be no different as the Blue Jays defeat the Pirates to play next week.
Mo Western at Nebraska- Kearney (MIAA TV game of the week)
Two new teams get some TV time and with it an early kick off time of 11am. Expect a game worth watching between these two evenly matched teams. When it’s over the Griffons will have added a win to their conference total.
Benedictine at Grand View (HAAC Game of the week)
Two top teams meet up for a game on TV. #8 Benedictine just won 35-0 last week while #5 Grand View has things on cruise control. When this entertaining meet up is over Grand View will be feeling pretty good.
Kansas City Chiefs at Cleveland Browns (Celebrity Forecaster, KC Star-Vahe Gregorian)
The Browns are bit of a wild card this week with the firing of their head coach and offensive coordinator. They are more talented than their record (2-5-1). None of that changes the fact the Chiefs have the highest scoring offense in the league and a defense that appears to be improving. They should win handily.
