HAYSVILLE, Kan. (KWCH) -- Heading into the opening round of the playoffs it could have been easy for Campus to overlook a South squad that had lost 4 straight. But any chance of that went out the window when the Titan's Antwain Scales got the attention of the Colts with a 57 yard touchdown run on just the third play of the game.

From that point on Greg Slade's team dialed it in and was all business. Campus answered South's score with one of their own, and it was impressive. Evan Kruse dropped back and went deep to connect with Tyler Kahmann. Kruse had great touch on the throw and Kahmann never broke stride on the long touchdown pass. The two point conversion made it 8-7.
And the fireworks for the Colts were just getting started. On the next possession Kruse hit Kahmann on a slip screen and then Kahmann did the rest. 19 yards later he was in the end-zone for 15-7 Campus lead.
Still in the first quarter the Colts showed they could get it done on the ground too. Cameron Harvey took the handoff on a jet sweep and then followed his blockers to pay-dirt. That score made it 22-7 in favor of Campus.
Into the second quarter and the Colts continued their scoring stampede. Mateo Martinez used a tough 11 yard run to set up another Campus touchdown. Kruse scored on a one yard Q-B keeper to push the lead to 29-7.
When the dust settled at the end of the night Campus had a huge victory. The Colts scored 57 unanswered points to win their opening round playoff game easily 57-6.
