    WARSAW - The final score of Friday’s Tolton football matchup — 44-20, in favor of the other team — looked just like any other game this season.

    But as various Trailblazers left Warsaw High School on crutches, holding ice packs to their limbs and covered with medical tape, one thing was clear: This battered and bruised team had put up a fight.

  • Even in injury, Lewis still contributing to Bruins Posted on 18 October 2019 at 12:59am

    De Smet quarterback AJ Fraser took the snap, faked a handoff on the read option play and started running toward the line of scrimmage midway through the second quarter of the Spartans’ game against Rock Bridge on Sept. 6.

    Bruins linebacker Jaden Lewis was blitzing on the play, and had to adjust when Fraser decided to take it for himself. Lewis caught up to Fraser and brought him down, landing at the bottom of a dog pile in the process.

  • Battle's biggest questions heading into Jefferson City Posted on 18 October 2019 at 12:52am

    Things were uncharacteristic in every sense of the word last week for the Battle Spartans.

    In a 29-0 defeat to Rockhurst — only the second shutout in program history — Battle (4-3) had what seemed to be a freaky Friday moment. An usually explosive offense seemed shut down by the Hawklets’ defense and, despite giving up four touchdowns, the Battle defense seemed to have its best performance yet.

  • How they prepare: following the Tolton Trailblazers' routine on game week Posted on 18 October 2019 at 12:46am

    For many Tolton football fans, setting aside each Friday night for the sole purpose of filling the stadium and cheering on the Trailblazers is routine.

    The parents of players spend a little more time during the week contemplating football as they pick up their kids from practice.

  • Hickman is prepared for last road game of the season Posted on 18 October 2019 at 12:33am

    Hickman coach Cedric Alvis isn’t going to Kansas City for barbeque.

  • Rock Bridge can measure season's progress against 6-1 Helias Friday Posted on 18 October 2019 at 12:27am

    Van Vanatta wasn’t moving around as much as he usually does at Rock Bridge’s practices this week.

    The football coach was on crutches Tuesday after undergoing a minor back surgery, but he had already left them behind by Wednesday. He expects to recover fully before Friday’s game against Helias.

  • Fulton seeks to flip the script against Mexico Posted on 18 October 2019 at 12:15am

    While Fulton and Mexico is considered a rivalry game, Mexico has dominated the matchup for the majority of this decade, winning six straight and losing only once in 2012.

    Not only has Mexico won the game during some of its stronger seasons, there were years where it had a poor season and still beat Fulton. In 2013, Mexico was 2-6 heading into its game against Fulton and shut out the Hornets, 21-0. Just last year, Mexico’s 49-14 blowout of Fulton was sandwiched between the Bulldogs losing 37-7 to Kirksville and 34-7 to Moberly.
