Scott County improves to 15-0 with a 21-14 victory over Meade County who finishes the season at 12-3.  This had to be a dream season for Scott County coach Jim McKee finishing undefeated, winning a state championship and watching his son Clay quarterback the team to victory.  Meade County coached by Larry Mofield battled hard but could not get their offense started until late in the game.  Meade County’s QB John Wilson and Scott County’s QB Clay McKee are cousins.  Scott County took a 7-0 lead but Meade County’s Nick O’Brien returned the ensuing kickoff 90 yards to the Scott county 1 yard line.  John Wilson then scored on a one yard run but Meade County failed on a two point conversion attempt.  Scott County scored another touchdown and led 14-6 at halftime.  John Wilson scored on an eight yard run and added the two point conversion to tie the score at 14-14 with 4:34 left in the game.  Scott County then started their drive and marched to the Meade County 6 yard line where on third-and-three Clay McKee threw a pass to the sideline to Scott Daniel who dived into the end zone for the score.  Palmer Ward tacked on the extra point to give Scott County a 21-14 lead.  Tyler Carpenter then intercepted a John Wilson pass at the Meade County 47 yard line to snuff out the last Meade County opportunity.

Scott County recorded 17 first downs and 289 yards of total offense.  The Cardinals were penalized four times for 35 yards and lost two fumbles.  Meade County recorded nine first downs and 173 yards of total offense.  The Green Wave were penalized three times for 25 yards, lost a fumble, and had two passes intercepted.

Keith Guy led Scott County’s ground game with 90 yards on 10 carries.  Kevin Claussen carried the ball 19 times for 86 yards and a touchdown.  Clay McKee completed seven of nine passes for 71 yards and two touchdowns.  Scott Daniel caught six passes for 53 yards and two touchdowns.  Austin Crank led the defense with eight solo and four assisted tackles with 1.5 of his tackles resulting in losses totaling nine yards.  Dylan Smith added six solo and one assisted tackles.  Thomas Daniel recorded five solo and two assisted tackles with 1.5 of his tackles resulting in losses totaling four yards.  Grayson Miller added four solo and three assisted tackles, recovered a fumble, and intercepted a pass.

Jon. Shacklette led Meade County’s ground game with 57 yards on 12 carries.  John Wilson carried the ball 16 times for 49 yards and two touchdowns.  Nick O’Brien recorded 42 yards on six carries.  John Wilson completed one of four passes for seven yards with two interceptions.  John Millay caught one pass for seven yards.  Antwan Ferguson led the defense with 10 solo and one assisted tackles.  John Wilson added six solo and four assisted tackles.  Zeb Wilson recorded six solo tackles.

Coach Jerry Lucas’ Collins team denied Highlands’ quest for a seventh consecutive title as they upended the Bluebirds by a score of 37-34.  Collins improves to 13-2 while Coach Dale Mueller’s Highlands team finished 13-2.  Collins led 23-14 after three quarters but Highlands rallied and took a 34-30 lead on a 1 yard run by Zach Harris but the two point conversion attempt failed with 2:33 left on the clock.  Collins drove to the Highlands 12 yard line but on fourth down at the 12 yard line Collins QB Lawson Page had to sit out a play because his helmet had come off on the previous play.  However Browning Becherer came into the game and threw a 12 yard touchdown pass to Nathan Sames with 7 seconds remaining on the clock.  Blanton Creque kicked the extra point and Collins held on to avenge their 47-0 loss to Highlands in last year’s championship game.

Collins recorded 25 first downs and 458 yards of total offense.  They were penalized twice for 21 yards.  Highlands recorded 23 first downs and 480 yards of total offense.  The Bluebirds were penalized eight times for 73 yards and lost two fumbles.
