Little River moved one step closer to a playoff spot Friday with a 48-26 victory over old rival Canton-Galva.

The Redskins can make the playoffs by winning their last two games, while the Eagles were eliminated.

Grant Harvey, moved to quarterback, rushed for 144 yards and threw for another 106 to lead the Redskins. Cordell Moore added 51 yards rushing and threw for another 46.

Travis Unruh threw for 144 yards and ran for 51 to lead the Eagles. 

Little River, now 4-3, is home to Ellinwood next week and C-G, 3-4, hosts Goessel.


• Smoky Valley 14, Nickerson 2 — Nickerson was smelling upset for a half, leading 2-0.

But the Vikings’ moribund offense came to life in the second half.

Cole Norberg scored both Viking touchdowns and finished with 144 yards on 26 carries. Nickerson was held to just 200 yards.

Smoky is 1-0 in the district and 4-3 overall. it plays Friday at Wamego in the game to determine the district leader.

• Remington 42, Moundridge 0 — Without top player DeShawn Pfeiff, the latest Wildcat to go down with an injury, the Wildcats offered little resistance.

The Wildcats are now 2-5 on the year, but still 2-0 in the district. They host Sacred Heart on Friday and a win would basically put them into postseason play even though they’ve been ravaged with injuries.

Freshman quarterback Mason Dyck, pressed into duty because of injuries to the top two quarterbacks, rushed for 58 yards to lead MHS.

• Sedgwick 49, Inman 16 — For the first time this year, the Teutons broke into double digits, but that didn’t prevent them from losing for a seventh straight time.

Inman steps out of district play on Friday to play at Troy.

• Hesston 56, Hillsboro 14 — The Swathers are now 7-0 after an easy rout of Hillsboro.

It gets tougher next week as the Swathers are at Council Grove.
