Wichita South doesn’t miss a beat in opener, rolls Southeast
WICHITA, Kan. (Catch it Kansas) - While the City League saw a wait to start the season, the South Titans did not miss a beat in their first game routing the Southeast Golden Buffaloes 52-0 to start the season.
The Saturday afternoon game saw the Titans take a commanding lead in the first half they would not relinquish. South was able to capitalize on Southeast mistakes turning most of them into points.
Following a touchdown in the second quarter, South recovered the kick-off after it was mishandled by the Buffs. That set up a touchdown run by T.J Neal who was active all afternoon leading the Titan defense. Neal was able to use his legs as a threat both rolling out of the pocket on passes and working option plays on designed runs.
Just before the half, Neal put together impressive scoring through the air. One a play action pass to Damion Beaver, and another to Dialo Watson who sped by the defensive back and made an impressive catch in the end zone.
Southeast was unable to get into a rhythm offensively, fumbling on run plays and a botched snap on a punt which gave the Titans favorable field position.
The bright spot on the Buffalo defense was linebacker Pedro Lopez who was able to fill the run up the middle, forcing South to bounce outside.
Southeast will take on defending GWAL champion, Wichita Northwest on Friday while South will look to stay unbeaten against Wichita North.
