Battling until the end, the Gardner Edgerton High School Blazer freshman football squad dropped an 18-14 season opener at Shawnee Mission East High School last week.
Leon Gaeta got the Blazers on the board, returning a fumble 35-yards for a touchdown. The other touchdown came on a run from Dyllan Ragsdale.
Despite the loss, Tucker Tribble led a strong defensive effort.
In the freshman B game, GEHS posted a 6-0 win thanks to a touchdown pass from Kobey Money to Mason Ditto.
