WICHITA, Kan. Wichita South came into Friday's game against Bishop Carroll with the attitude of a big underdog with nothing to lose. It showed early in the game with some unusual play calls. The Titans started the game with an onside kick which they failed to recover. The Golden Eagles capitalized on the short field and scored on just the fifth play of the game. Aiden Niedens found Max Bullinger wide open over the middle and threw a strike for a 20 yard touchdown pass and B-C was off and running with a 7-0 lead.
