McPherson’s seventh-grade football team completed a sweep of the City of Derby on Thursday with a 36-8 rout of Derby North.

MMS had knocked off Derby Middle School last week.

“The tone was set early by the defense that caused two forced fumbles,” MMS coach Brandon Labertew said. “The offensive line controlled the first half, which led to 28 points.”

The Bullpups rushed for 213 yards and threw for 99. Scoring on the day were Aaron Powell, Avante Wade, Dylan Rinker and EJ Hein.

MMS will try to make it five straight wins on Thursday at Salina Lakewood.
