Little Movement Expected in 8 Man Polls After Week Five

All the top ten teams except for King City won Friday night. But next Friday will see some shakeup as Worth County travels to St. Joseph Christian and North Andrew and Stanberry tilt in a rematch of last year's 16-14 Stanberry victory in the state title game in which the Bulldogs used a goalline stand to preserve the win.

#1 Stanberry 80, Pattonsburg 12 -- Stanberry had little trouble disposing of Pattonsburg and staying on top of the perch. Trey Schieber rushed for 180 yards and Cory Luke threw for 70 more. But Pattonsburg showed some life offensively behind quarterback Cole Dilley. He completed 9 passes in 13 attempts for 122 yards and ran for 54 more.

#2 North Andrew 70, Sacred Heart 12 -- Schoonover's Cardinals had just as little trouble disposing of Sacred Heart despite their second straight long road trip.

#3 Nodaway-South Holt 62, DeKalb 0 -- This one was over by halftime.

#4 Rock Port 46, East Atchison 0 -- This one was over at halftime. Jase Hughes completed five passes in nine attempts for 180 yards despite the shortened game. Tyler Jones caught three of those for 135 yards. Rock Port did nothing to hurt their second place standing in Worth County's district.

#5 Worth County 42, #10 King City 26 -- Worth County has won every single Homecoming match since 2004, but King City showed they belong in the rankings. Isaac Alarcon, the leading runningback in eight man football, rushed for 103 yards on 28 carries despite getting a lot of attention defensively. Cade Allee had his best game as a Tiger, getting 8 completions in 9 attempts for 134 yards and two long runs as well. For King City, Collin Breckinridge threw for 170 yards and ran for 61 more.

#6 Southwest Livingston 28, Stewartsville 26 -- Southwest Livingston held off Stewartsville in a thriller to stay on the perch.

#7 St. Joseph Christian 62, Albany 6 -- Christian had little trouble disposing of Albany, who elected to play on despite being down 45 points. Johnathan Wing ran for 181 yards and threw for 73 more against the Warriors. Tom Sagun broke off a 30 yard run for a rare bright spot for Albany.

#8 Greenfield 54, Marmaton (KS) 0 -- Unbeaten Greenfield had little trouble sending Marmaton back to Kansas.

#9 Mound City 46, North/West Nodaway 0 -- Mound City put this one away in the third quarter. North/West Nodaway played tough in the opening quarter, trailing only 8-0 after one frame. But then the floodgates opened after that, with Ben Shifflett eating them alive. He ran for 147 yards and threw for 51. For North/West Nodaway, Korbin Koch was 7 for 17 for 36 yards. Weston Carter had three catches for 19 yards.
