WICHITA, Kan. (Catch it Kansas) - For the second straight game to open their season, Wichita South won via a 50+ point shutout, this time against Wichita North Saturday afternoon.

The two rival GWAL schools met on a Saturday, part of an unusual start to their season that they for awhile didn’t know would happen. And for the second straight Saturday, the Titans put together a dominant performance. They topped Southeast 52-0 last week, and this week won by a 56-0 margin.

The special teams of South got things started, forcing and recovering a fumble on the opening kickoff. That lead to the first score on a big day for QB TJ Neal, a 33-yard dime to Izayn Beach. Then after a three and out highlighted by an Antoin Alston sack, Neal again took to the air, this time hitting Dialo Watson from 40 yards out to get it to a 12-0 margin.

Neal would throw a third touchdown pass later in the half to Damion Beaver, also breaking free for a 46 yard touchdown run. His backfield mate Jordan Huggins was hard to take down as well, scoring a pair of first half touchdowns including one from 65 yards out as the Titans pulled away early for the big win.

The Titans have now outscored opponents 108-0 through two games, but will face a tough test next Friday night; the Titans welcome 9th ranked Wichita East to Carpenter Stadium. East and South are the lone two remaining unbeaten teams in Class 6A West; East topped North 80-0 Monday night before a bye this week.
