Grant Elston helped the Warriors (4-2) on half of those scores, racking up three touchdowns with a pass to Austin Ettinger, a run and an interception return.

Ettinger also ran for a touchdown, as did Ethan Phillips and Dalton Trimble.

Elston also ran for a pair of two-point conversions and completed a pass to Dawson Jones on another try.

Lucas Skaggs ran for Tonganoxie’s other successful two-point attempt.

The TMS eighth-grade team lost on the road to Lexington Trails, 39-16.

Jared Somers passed to Carl Hecht for one of the Warriors’ touchdowns and Hecht returned the favor with a TD pass to Somers on the team’s other score.
