Eisenhower scores 16 unanswered, beats Andover 16-7
GODDARD, Kan. (Catch it Kansas) - Andover got out to a first-quarter lead, but didn’t score again as Goddard Eisenhower picked up the 16-7 win at home.
The Trojans' Brady Strausz went deep midway through the first quarter and found Isaiah Maikori on the sideline for a huge 60-yard touchdown pass to go up 7-0.
From that point, neither team could get much of anything going as penalties, no-gain runs, and incomplete passes plagued both offenses. But with nine minutes left in the half, Eisenhower put a drive together to get it down to the four-yard line.
The Tigers' Cade Schuber took the handoff, turned the corner, took a couple hits, but stretched out for the touchdown and Eisenhower’s first score of the game. The missed point-after attempt kept Eisenhower behind 7-6.
As the first half wound down, Eisenhower quarterback Nick Hogan found and open Cade Friend for a big 28-yard pass and a few plays later, the Tigers landed at the 15-yard line.
Hogan ran it in and hit the pylon to put his team up 12-7, and then converted the two-point attempt to make it 14-7.
Eisenhower’s Parker Stevens picked up a safety for the final 16-7 score.
Eisenhower is now 2-2 on the season and faces rival Goddard next Friday.
With the loss, Andover is also 2-2 and will face Campus next week.
