Andale dominates Collegiate 49-0
ANDALE, Kan. (Catch it Kansas) - Wichita Collegiate joined Riley County, Clearwater, and Larned as another team that just got in the way.
Andale ran all over the Spartans Friday and moved on to its sixth state championship game with a 49-0 win. The Indians led 42-0 at halftime.
Andale has given up just seven points through four games of the 2020 playoffs and outscored opponents 218-7.
“It’s special any year, but I think it’s extra special this year with everything going on outside football,” said Andale head coach Dylan Schmidt. “I’m just proud of our seniors. This has been an unbelievable group. This is their third time out of four years to go to state, which has never been done in school history.”
The night belonged to Eli Rowland, who scored three times, once to open the game on the Indians’ first drive, then twice more on punt returns.
The first time Andale didn’t score on a possession came on its second drive of the second half, and that doesn’t even include the safety Collegiate gave up on a bad snap on a punt.
Andale was up 16-0 after the first quarter and turned to Noah Meyer to open the second quarter with a touchdown. Meyer found Caden Parthemer open in the end zone for the easy score to go up 24-0 on the first play of the second quarter.
Quarterback Wyatt Spexarth scored on a sneak, then Rowland returned a punt for a touchdown. A running clock was introduced midway through the third quarter.
Collegiate finishes its season with a 10-2 record.
Andale (11-0) will face Perry-Lecompton (11-1) in the state championship game. The Kaws beat Holton (9-1) by a score of 22-9 in the sub-state round.
