The Gardner Edgerton High School Blazer football losing streak extended to six games with a 31-15 loss at Blue Valley North last Friday night.
Both teams entered the Eastern Kansas League game with 0-5 records. North ended its 19-game losing streak with the win, while GEHS enters district play at 0-6.
North notched the scoreboard first when quarterback Joey Dolan connected with his favorite target Alex Blake on a 25-yard scoring play midway through the first quarter. Minutes later, Dolan found wide receiver Carter Howes on a five yard touchdown pass and North owned a 14-0 lead.
The Blazers narrowed North’s lead when GEHS quarterback Colten Mullin connected on a 51-yard, touchdown strike with senior wide receiver Tanner Hughes. The two point conversion was good by Keegan Michael, and the Blazers pulled within 6 points with less than a minute to go in the second quarter.
Unfortunately, North went to work early in the third quarter when Dolan found wide receiver Blake on another 24 yard scoring touchdown strike. Late in the third quarter Dolan scored on a 7-yard touchdown run to put North up 28-8.
GEHS answered and made it 28-15 on a nice 13-yard touchdown run by Mullin.
However, North sealed its first win in 20 games when Emmerson Womble connected on a 29-yard field goal.
GEHS enters 6A district play at Blue Valley on Oct. 17. Blue Valley is 5-1 and fresh from a 21-14 win against St. Thomas Aquinas. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. at Blue Valley district stadium.
