ABILENE — One victory away from perfection — again.

McPherson High’s ninth-grade football team — which rolled through its eighth-grade season without being tested — remained undefeated Tuesday with a 38-6 rout of Abilene.

All that stands between the 7-0 Bullpups and perfection is mighty Buhler, which hosts MHS next Monday.

Austen Hunt ran for two scores, while Drew Labertew hooked up twice with Wyatt Seidl for touchdown passes. Labertew had the passing arm working as he also connected with Brian Puhalla for a third TD aerial.

Hunt and Seidl scored 2-pointers. The third 2-pointer was unavailable.
