Erie Takes Down Neodesha in High School Game of The Week



A make up game from Friday night was moved to this evening in Neodesha. KGGFs presentation of the High school Game of the week saw the Erie High School Red Devils travel to Neodesha High to battle the Blue Streaks. From the beggining the home crew of Neodesha was struck with injuires as their starting Quarterback Blaze Grimes went down on the first drive of the game. Setting back head coach John Black with their original game plan they put in Randall McKinnis as well as Mayson Ellis in at Quarterback with Ellis seeing most of the touches. With the set back the Blue Streaks still got on the board first with a 25 yard TD pass from Ellis to John Wallace which put the Streaks up by 6, which they could not convert the point after. After a scoreless 1st quarter the Streaks took the lead early 2nd which was quickly flipped by a good drive by the Red Devils who go the length of the feild and finish their drive with a passing TD and the point after to give them a 7 -6 lead. Inching closer to half, the Red Devils took back the possesion, burned 5 minutes off the clock and scored once more going into halftime leading 14 to 6. After halftime both teams struggled to gain traction in the 3rd quarter as both teams go scoreless through the quarter. Both defenses not giving an inch till about 4 minutes remaining when Neodesha took their shot down field, as Erie defensive back Tyler Wimp takes it 50 plus yards to the house with an interception giving the Red Devils a 20 - 6 lead. A missed field goald kept the score as it finished as the Red Devils take home their first win of the season 20 - 6. Neodesha's Blaze Grimes seemingly out for a couple weeks as well as back up quarterback went down with concussion like symptoms after the game was over. Blue Streaks host Caney on Friday on 104.1 KGGF and the Red Devils travel to Cherryvale for week 3.
