Topeka West ousts BSHS

November 20, 2002

Bonner Springs was the last Kaw Valley League team still in the state football playoffs as of Friday, but that was short-lived.

Playing against Topeka West in Bonner Springs, the Braves fell behind 20-0 in the first half and never recovered, eventually losing 43-14.

BSHS cut West's lead to 21-6, but the Chargers (9-2) were too much.

Bonner Springs ended its season at 6-5 in its first year back in the Kaw Valley League.

The Delaware Valley also is out of playoff representatives. DVL members Jefferson County North and Jackson Heights were a game away from a rematch, but both saw their seasons end in brutal fashion. Despite trailing just 14-6 with 3:53 left in the first half Saturday, JCN (9-3) couldn't stop Sedan. The Blue Devils (11-1) rolled up three touchdowns and took a 34-6 lead into the locker room. Sedan went on to win, 50-19.

Jackson Heights battled fellow undefeated Class 2A Titan Colgan on Saturday in Pittsburg, but the Cobras couldn't generate much of anything. Colgan dropped JHHS 42-0, extending Colgan's winning streak to 38 games. The two-time defending champions now will play Sedan on Saturday.
