Welcome to Blue Springs Wildcat Football
Second-half surge helps Cats share title

By Bill Althaus

After an uninspired first half of play at Lee’s Summit North High School Friday night, the Blue Springs Wildcats turned it up a notch in the third quarter.

The result was a 31-13 Suburban Big Six victory for the Wildcats in the regular-season finale. The win gave Blue Springs a share of the Big Six title with Raymore-Peculiar at 4-1.
“Every time we come over here, we face a scrappy team that gives us everything they have,” said Wildcats coach Kelly Donohoe, whose team has won the last two Class 6 state championships.
“We weren’t that bad in the first half – we scored on two of three possessions – but we were lackadaisical at times and, well, it’s one of those games where the kids see we’re playing a 1-7 team, then they come over here and realize they better start playing some football because those kids on North aren’t going to just roll over because we’re Blue Springs High School.”
After a scoreless first quarter, Cobi Bissell scored on a 4-yard run to give the Wildcats a 7-0 lead, but North quickly answered as Nathan Webb hit Ryan Martinez on a 37-yard pass play.
With 4:48 left in the half, Ian Brown hooked up with Terrance Sanders on a 35-yard touchdown play to help Blue Springs take a 14-7 lead into halftime.
The second half belonged to the Wildcats as Bissell ran for 59-yard touchdown and Brown scored from the 1-yard line. A 27-yard Benjamin Hellon field goal accounted for the final score. North scored with no time on the clock when Martinez ran for a 31-yard score.
Following Bissell’s 59-yard run, a familiar voice said, “It’s about time I saw you break a long one.”
Bissell looked up from the bench and saw former teammate and two-time Simone Award winning running back Dalvin Warmack, a redshirt freshman at Kansas State.
“It was great seeing Dalvin,” said Bissell, who finished the night with 31 carries for 234 yards and two touchdowns. “I’m glad I was able to break a long one for him. I saw him do it enough times, now he gets to see me.”
As Bissell took the wraps off his hands, the word TEAM was written along the back of his hand.

“Team, that’s what it’s all about,” the senior leader said. “We played like a team tonight, especially the second half. Now is the time we have to play our best football.”
