Wellington travels to No. 2 Andale… South Haven to battle Udall in what is a playoff game… Conway Springs hosts Garden Plain

first_imgby Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — This week on tap on football Friday… Wellington has its work cut out for it when it travels to Andale, Udall travels to South Haven which is essentially a playoff game, South Barber comes to Caldwell, and Garden Plain travels to Conway Springs in what may be the least anticipated matchup between these teams in years… Injury situation: The Dukes seem pretty healthy. Tyson Hodson should be back. Brendon Troutman could be back from his wrist injury. Oct. 31Winfieldaway •••••Other Sumner County games:UDALL AT SOUTH HAVEN (CJ COMPUTER pick: Udall) This is a playoff game for both teams. West Elk defeated both Udall and South Haven in District 1 and has all but sown up the top spot in District 1. But the second place is up for grabs. Sedan is also playing in the mix.The Cardinals are hoping to preserve their playoff streak that has run back to 2003. That’s an eternity in the football world. But to do so, they have to win this weekend. South Haven lost 44-42 in overtime to West Elk two weeks ago while Udall lost to the same Patriot team 42-22. Both have beaten Oxford. Wellington21.66741.80014493 The synopsis: Wellington head football coach Tyler Ryan made a startling point at Crusader Club the other day.“Andale has probably the best team they have had in years, probably since they won a state championship,” he said.Oh, boy.Andale last won a state championship in 2007. That’s five Andale teams since that weren’t as good as these 2013 Indians.To say the Crusaders have their work cut out for them may be that, well you know the term.. ” an understatement.”Wellington beat Circle 43-0 in a romp during a rain-induced Friday. Trouble is, Andale was down the road destroying Augusta 73-6.2012 was not a good season for the Crusaders. But Wellington really lost to Andale losing 60-30. The game was notable in that Andale held a 52-16 lead at the half. Ask any Crusader player who played that game last year, and they will tell you Andale just hit harder than the other teams.Andale will typically run you over. Hunter Knoblauch is the leading rusher in Ark Valley-Chisholm Trail League Div. IV with 767 yards. Hank Eck (always an Eck) has 292 yards and quarterback Jared Smarsh has 212.The Indians rarely pass, but Smarsh has thrown for 289 yards this season.So should Wellington even bother showing up?Of course it should. One thing this year’s team has proven – it can play ball with about anybody. Wellington lost to Wichita Collegiate 49-21 but was tied with the Spartans midway through the third quarter before they let the game get away from them. Collegiate has been the one team that gave Andale a game, losing a close one to the Indians 30-28.Wellington will have to put together its best game of the season and then have a little luck on top of that to win this one. But that’s why they play the game. The Topeka Capital-Journal computerized picks: Andale. Follow the game: Twitter: Cueballnewscow. Radio: Adrian Young, play-by-play, KLEY-AM 1130.

Kickoff is at 7 p.m.  Ark Valley-Chisholm Trail-Division IV Circle03005034213 GARDEN PLAIN AT CONWAY SPRINGS (CJ COMPUTER pick: Conway Springs)This may be the one time where this game doesn’t look like a barn-burning winner takes all kind of contest. That’s because Garden Plain has struggled as of late with two straight losses. Last week it lost to Cheney after falling to Wichita Trinity the week before. Trinity then lost to Conway Springs last week.So Conway Springs may be salivating for a chance of beating Garden Plain like a drum, something that just doesn’t happen. The Cardinals are 5-0. The Owls are 3-2. But the thing about a rivalry like this, you never know… Andale:Andale 30 Wichita Collegiate 28Andale 32 Rose Hill 16Andale 37 Clearwater 7Andale 66 Circle 7Andale 73 Augusta 6.

The CJ Computer has just two points separating the two schools. A&A lost handily to Hope last week which is one of the premiere teams in eight-man football. Game night weather: No rain! The temperatures are expected to hover in the 60s and perhaps dip into the upper 50s by the end of the game for a good fall evening.

OXFORD AT SEDAN (CJ COMPUTER pick: Oxford)The Wildcats may have kissed their playoff hopes goodbye with a loss to South Haven. But Oxford can take care of business with Sedan and hope Udall and South Haven completely self destruct down the stretch. Points BELLE PLAINE AT WICHITA INDEPENDENT (CJ COMPUTER pick: Wichita Independent)Belle Plaine had its highest point total of the season in week 5 against Haven scoring 28 points. Trouble is Haven scored 52. Wichita Independent is coming off a big win over Chaparral 36-20 last week. Close Forgot password? Please put in your email: Send me my password!
