KANSAS — Wyandotte got a pair of first-quarter touchdowns then relied on its defense for a 20-0 win over Kansas here Friday, Oct. 12.
“We came out and played the whole game, which was nice,” Wyandotte head coach Zac Ross said.
The WHS defense limited Kansas to three first downs in the first half. “Our defense played really well,” Ross said. “That’s how we started out the season, was with our defense. The last couple weeks, we’ve been trying to get back to that mentality and I think the kids picked up on it and really did a heck of a job.”
Iman Burrows caught a 52-yard TD pass from Justin Campbell for Wyandotte’s first score.
A short time later, Zach Garrett took off on a 23-yard TD run in the first quarter.
The Bears’ final score came on a 70-yard strike from Campbell to Helawa Williams in the third quarter.
“Our seniors came out and really played hard,” Ross said. “We challenged a couple of kids throughout the week and they stepped up. I was proud of the way they played.”
The shutout was the first of the season for the Bears.
Campbell was 10 of 19 passing for 178 yards and the two touchdowns. He threw one interception.
Campbell also ran for 80 yards on 10 carries.
Garrett chipped in with 50 rushing yards.
