McPherson’s ninth-grade football team scored twice in the second quarter and then the defense took over in a 14-0 blanking of Winfield on Monday at McPherson Stadium.
Kaleb Hoppes sprinted 61 yards for a touchdown with 5:26 left in the half and then ran in for a 2-pointer. With 37 seconds left in the half, Hoppes flipped a 5-yard scoring strike to Jakob Feil. The conversion was no good.
McPherson remains perfect on the season at 3-0. It plays Monday at Augusta.
