Cherryvale tames Bluestem Lions

LEON — The Cherryvale Chargers turned the tables on Friday night, beating Bluestem by the same score as they lost to Caney Valley last week, 42-6.

The Chargers scored three times in the first quarter for a 20-0 lead and then three more times before halftime. Neither team scored in the second half.

Coach Harry Hester thought his players were physical and played outstanding defense.

“We were able to mix the run and the pass effectively,” he said.

Gavin Hooper accounted for 176 yards and four touchdowns on 8-of-14 passing. Zaine Lantz caught four passes for 136 yards and three touchdowns for Hester said was a “huge night,” while Chet Linn hauled in the other touchdown pass from Hooper. Wyatt Gillman ran for a 9-yard touchdown in the first quarter followed by a Jacobi Barnett 7-yard TD run. 

The Chargers will play at Erie on Friday.

Albertini runs wild over Life Prep for St. Paul

WICHITA — St. Paul amassed nearly 400 years of offense Friday night en route to a 58-12 win on a 100-yard field in Wichita. The game ended because of the mercy rule in the third quarter.

Eight-man football is normally played on a narrower 80-yard field. Life Prep Academy in Wichita had a 100-yard field available and St. Paul agreed to compete on it, coach Keith Wiatrak said.

The Indians generated 400 yards of offense on the ground thanks to the one-two punch of Adam Albertini and Easton Dent, Wiatrak said. “And our line really blocked well for them.”

Albertini had 290 yards on 12 carries and scored seven touchdowns. Last week, Albertini ran the ball 14 times for 229 yards. Dent had 110 yards on 10 carries Friday night and one TD. 

“But I thought it was a good team combination tonight,” Wiatrak said. “It was tough to stop us tonight.”

He said the St. Paul defense played well on the larger field and gave up a touchdown on a broken play in the third quarter, plus the kickoff return. Life Prep was athletic and had a lot of speed on the team, Wiatrak said.

“I thought we played real well tonight. I’m very proud of the boys.”

St. Paul, now 2-0, will host West Elk next Friday.
