Lee's Summit North, West each 4-0 with W's

Lee’s Summit West 28, Staley 7

For the first time since 2018, Lee’s Summit West stands at 4-0 to open the season.

The Titans surpassed last year’s win total (3) with a 28-7 victory over Staley on Friday, buoyed by a solid game from quarterback Caden Carter. The Missouri Southern baseball signee was 6-for-8 passing for 128 yards and three touchdowns. He connected twice with Jackson Torry - the first a 3-yard score which gave Lee’s Summit West a lead for good in the first quarter.

The last scoring pass with Torry accounted for the final points, coming on a 71-yard reception in what was a 21-point fourth quarter between the two teams. 

Midway in the second, Carter rolled out to his right, slung a pass from the Titan 45 to a crossing Tayveon Simms at the 25, who beat a defender down the sideline and a 45-yard scoring play, and a 14-0 lead into intermission. 

After both teams were held scoreless in the third, Staley (2-2) struck first on a two-yard touchdown run by KV Stone. He finished with 149 yards rushing on 31 carries for the Falcons.

Titans linebacker Devin Wilson had a team-high 13 tackles. Lee’s Summit West also created two turnovers on interceptions.

The last time the Titans were 4-0 came in 2018, starting 5-0 that season before finishing 9-2. 

Lee's Summit North 37, Lee's Summit 16

Third and long? Lee's Summit North had crosstown rival Lee's Summit right where they want them.

The Broncos, No. 1 in the 810 Varsity Top 25, scored three touchdowns facing the normally tough situation, and rolled its district rival, 37-16, at North.

Lee’s Summit North (4-0) converted on a third-and-nine from its own 26, when quarterback Elijah Leonard hit Isaiah Mozee across the middle, who curled up the sideline, crossed midfield, broke a tackle at the Tiger 40 and was gone for a 10-0 lead at with 1:00 left in the first stanza. 

In the second quarter, facing third and 10, Leonard broke from the pocket, scampered up the middle to the left sideline, then at the 3, ran through two Tigers and a Bronco, into the end zone for a 16-0 lead with 8:26 in the half.

Lee’s Summit (2-2), opened the second half with a 75-yard scoring drive, capped by a 10-yard pass from quarterback Dawson Heeney to senior Brayden Davis, and a 16-6 deficit. 

On the ensuing play, the Tigers felt good having North against a third-and-16 at their own 43. But Leonard bombed downfield to a wide open Michael Lane, and a 23-6 margin with 5:29 in the quarter.

From there, the Broncos scored two more times, on a 39-yard touchdown pass from Leonard to Tanner Howes, and an 11-yard flareout pass from Leonard to Mozee, who broke a few tackles down the left sideline for a 37-6 romp with 10:36 left. 

Jamar Mozee takes a pass 73 yards to the house! (810 Varsity's Tim Spoerl and Jeremy Crabtree, on Sports Radio 810)
