Rush of Confidence

When Lee's Summit quarterback Drew Lock opened Friday night's marquee matchup at Peve Stadium with an 80-yard touchdown pass to Hunter Allee, the host Blue Springs Wildcats didn't blink.

“We know we are a good team,” said senior tackle Khalil Davis, who anchored a defense that recorded 8.5 sacks, “and we knew we'd come back. We didn't like the way the game started, but we loved how it ended.”
It ended with senior running back Cobi Bissell carrying the ball 29 times for 219 yards and four touchdowns and the Wildcats claiming a 47-28 homecoming win that featured 586 yards of total offense.
“All the credit for my performance tonight goes to the guys on the line,” said Bissell, who had the unenviable task of replacing two-time Simone Award winner Dalvin Warmack in the Wildcat backfield this season.
“We knew that if we had a successful running game it would keep Drew and their offense on the sidelines. Our goal was 200 yards – and I know we got a lot more than that (386 rushing yards). They scored on that first pass play, then we scored three in a row and pretty much made sure they didn't get back in the game because of our great defense.”
Blue Springs quarterback Ian Brown, who was 10 of 19 for 200 yards and a score, hit Tamarick Quinney on a 26-yard pass play to knot the score at 7-all.
Terrance Sanders then turned in a breath-taking effort, zig-zagging from the far sideline to midfield to score on a 42-yard run (the extra point was wide).
Bissell then got into the offensive flow with a 68-yard run where he burst up the middle and eluded several would-be tacklers.
“We're so proud of Cobi and our running game,” senior offensive lineman Nathan Weddle said. “We knew if we could get some scores on the ground and keep the ball away from the Tigers we had a great chance to win the game. So, that's what we did.”
Blue Springs led 19-7 after one period but Lock and the Tigers weren't about to let the Wildcats run all over them all night.
Lock had TD passes of 17 and 70 yards in the second period, while Bissell scored on a 39-yard run and Brown scored from the 1 to make it a 33-21 game at halftime.

“I know we gave up 28 points tonight,” first-year defensive coordinator Matt Marble said, “but we made some adjustments and we knew we were facing maybe the best quarterback we would ever face – along with the young man from Fort Osage (Skylar Thompson, who led the Indians to a stunning victory over the Wildcats).
