Central Heights racked up 304 yards on the ground in their season opener 39-6 blowout win over Jayhawk-Linn High School.

“We ran the ball real well,” Kent Schulte, Central Heights head football coach, said.

Jacob Pryor, running back, led the team with 109 rushing, followed by senior running backs Tristan Davis and Colby Roberston, who had 99 and 69 yards rushing respectively.

“I thought all three of them ran real well,” Schulte said. “I thought the offensive line did a good job blocking it up.”

The Vikings will play 7 p.m. Friday at Burlington High School.

Baldwin 46, Wellsville 12

WELLSVILLE — Brett Osbern, junior running back, had 168 and two touchdowns on 12 carries in a losing effort for the Wellsville High School football team Friday night. The Eagles were routed at home 46-12 by Baldwin High School.

“It was a tough match-up for us in week one,” Brad Burkdoll, Wellsville head coach said.

The game was Burkdoll’s opener as the head coach of the Eagles. Burkdoll commended his running back for making plays late in the game.

“(Osbern) kept playing hard,” Burkdoll said. “We settled down a little in the second half, but we could never really drive on them. It was a challenge from the start.”

Both of Osbern’s touchdowns were 62-yard runs and both came in the second half.

Wellsville plays 7 p.m. Friday at Olpe.

Northern Heights 28, WF 20

ALLEN — Falcon football got off to a rough start Friday. West Franklin dropped a 28-20 heartbreaker on the road to Northern Heights High School.

“It was a close game the whole time,” head coach Seth Homolka said.

According to Homolka, the Falcons fumbled the ball on the Northern Heights one-yard line on the game’s final play.

Josh Napper, fullback, ran for 179 yards on 20 carries and scored twice for West Franklin. Emerson Reece, quarterback/free safety, also had a big night for the team on both sides of the ball, completing six of 14 passes for 130 yards and a touchdown.

“(Reece) had a great night throwing the ball,” Homolka said.
