I got my first live look at the Basehor-Linwood Bobcats and it didn’t take long to see why they are undefeated. They suffocating Bonner Springs on their own floor jumping out to a 24-0 lead just 8 minutes into the game. Basehor cruised to the finish winning 45-16.
Eric Scott is a top 2 or 3 athlete in the SHUKC this year. He has a great frame and proven capability with his accomplishments in track. The only thing that slowed him down tonight were flags but even in those plays that came back for penalties you can see the skills.
When a game is out of hand I start thinking about some silly things. The last 16 minutes of the 2nd quarter was pretty boring. Bonner has just punted the ball back to Basehor with 1:00 left in the half. I sat there thinking that a dominant offensive team would score here. I thought back to Mill Valley last year how they would just find a way to demoralize a team. In that moment Justin Phillips hits junior CJ Watson and he starts to weave his way through the Bonner defense and down the side line for a score.
Basehor-Linwood executes at a very high level and is obviously very good. Its hard to deep dive into a game like this as they have yet to be challenged. The way the rest of the league stacking up I don’t know who would provide that challenge but I think one would be appreciated before this team goes into the playoffs.
Very impressive game for Basehor-Linwood.
Piper’s JJ Letcher and Jordan Goodpastor both had ball games against Turner winning 55-27. S/O to Dalton White who was a participant in our 8th grade SHUKC camp a few years ago. He scored a TD tonight. Proud of you bud!

Tonganoxie with a 28-21 win over Lansing. Props to the Chieftains as this is an impressive win against the 5A Lions.
Schlagle 52-18 over Wyandotte. The Neil Ruff train keeps chugging along as he is starting to set some new rushing standards in SHUKC history. 266 yards for Ruff and 6 TD’s. 1161 yards and 17 TD’s on the season for Ruff in 5 games.
Atchison 58-6 over Washington. LeBlue with 110 yards on the ground.
