WICHITA, Kan.—Heights football continued to roll on Friday with a 43-0 dismantling of the Washburn Rural Junior Blues.
There were a lot of unknowns about the Junior Blues heading into the game, but any worries were assuaged early on in the contest.
Even after Heights got a big lead, the Falcons did not relax or let up.
"The thing our team did best was maintain consistency. We kept playing every play as if the score was 0-0,” Schroeder said. "I wouldn't have changed anything. Our offense and defense were both on top of their game which led to us shutting out a skilled team."
Heights had 344 yards rushing in the game with no player breaking the 100-yard barrier. One of the highlights of the game was Chris Reed’s 85-yard halfback pass to Jon Wilcoxson for a touchdown.
Heights is still two games away from making it to the title game, but the Falcons continue to improve and grow as a team.
"We have improved literally everything. We started out the season with nothing but success, but we had to polish our gameplay in every aspect to take on a team like Derby,” Schroeder said.
Heights will have to continue improving to repeat as a state champion.
“If we keep performing how we have been, keep polishing up our fundamentals and keep having good practice, we will have a good chance at taking state," Schroeder said.
Heights will play host to Garden City at 7 p.m. on Friday.
