Needing a win to have a chance at hosting a game in week 10, Washington changed things up offensively during its game Friday at Francis Howell North, but suffered a 39-29 loss.

The Blue Jays (2-7) and the Knights (3-6) were tied late in the third quarter until the home team pulled away for the win.

Kyle Summers, the Blue Jays’ leading rusher at running back, got the start at quarterback and played there for most of the game.

“We wanted to control the clock and keep the ball in Kyle’s hands as much as possible. Having him at quarterback was the best way to do it,” said Washington Head Coach Zach Schneider. “We were successful for 2 1/2 quarters until they started to key on Kyle and shut us down late in the third quarter and into the fourth. Until that point, we moved the ball pretty well.”

Christian Hardesty also saw time at quarterback for the Blue Jays.

Washington begins Class 5 District 4 action on Friday, traveling to Sedalia to face Smith-Cotton (3-6) in the opening round at 7 p.m.

Statistics

Washington accumulated 357 yards, 282 rushing and 75 passing.

Summers carried the ball 27 times for 209 yards and scored three touchdowns, two rushing and one receiving. He also had one reception, which went for a 43-yard touchdown.

For the season, Summers has rushed for 1,711 yards.

Hardesty was 4-9 passing for 75 yards with one touchdown and one interception.

Bollmann rushed for 55 yards on five attempts and scored on the 98-yard kickoff return. He added three catches for 14 yards.

Caleb Curran rushed for 18 yards on five attempts. Austin Finder had two carries for seven yards.

Calvin Blaylock had one reception for 12 yards.

Defensively, DJ Quaethem, Nick Cunningham and Alex Schull each registered nine solo tackes. Quaethem added one assist.

AJ Bartlett finished with five solos and one assist. Jacob Brinker, Nathan Kopp, Jacob Maerli and Michael Wadlow each had four solos. Summers had a sack.

Game Summary

The Blue Jays held a 22-14 lead at halftime, but were outscored 25-7 in the second half.

“We had three big mistakes, which were a 21-point swing in the game,” Schneider said. “On their first drive, we had a late hit on a fourth and long play, which gave them a first down. They went on the score on the drive. Their second touchdown came after we fumbled the ball on a punt return. We called for a fair catch and the ball hit one of our blockers. On our first drive of the second half, we scored on a reverse, but it was called back due to a holding penalty. That would have put us ahead by two possessions.”

Washington tied the game 7-7 on the 98-yard kickoff return by Bollmann with 7:01 remaining in the first quarter.

The Blue Jays then grabbed a 14-7 advantage in the second quarter on a eight-yard touchdown run by Summers.

Howell North tied the game 14-14 with 6:23 left in the second quarter.

A fake punt set up Washington’s next touchdown, an 11-yard scoring run by Summers with 13 seconds left in the second quarter.

The Knights tied the game 22-22 with 4:34 left in the third quarter and led 25-22 heading into the fourth.

Washington was outscored 14-7 in the final 12 minutes.

Summers scored on the 43-yard touchdown pass from Hardesty.

Smith-Cotton Preview

Fifth-seeded Washington visits fourth-seeded Smith-Cotton in Class 5 District 4 action Friday at 7 p.m.

The other first-round district game features sixth-seeded Rolla (1-7) at third-seeded Waynesville (3-6).

Top-seeded Camdenton (8-1) and second-seeded Lebanon (6-3) receive first-round byes.

The Blue Jays defeated Smith-Cotton in last season’s district opener, 45-14.

“It’s a good draw for us, except having to travel to Sedalia. We match up pretty well with them,” Schneider said. “They have similar types of kids as we do as far as size and skill are concerned. It boils down to who takes care of the ball and limits mistakes.”

Smith-Cotton is coming off a 28-20 loss last week to St. Pius X (Kansas City).

The Tigers own wins over Orchard Farm (39-0), Warrensburg (42-6) and Clinton (42-22).

Other losses have come against Nixa (41-0), Helias (56-15), Grain Valley (37-14), O’Hara (43-36) and Kansas City Center (18-13).

“Like us, I’m sure they feel they’ve lost a couple of games that they should have won. Last week, they turned the ball over twice inside the five-yard line against St. Pius X. They also lost an overtime game to Center,” Schneider said. “Offensively, they’re a running team. They don’t throw much. They run the double wing like Sullivan does. They have a 1,000-yard rusher and a couple of kids around 400 or 500 yards. It will be a good challenge for us.”

The Washington-Smith-Cotton winner travels to Camdenton for the district semifinals Wednesday, Nov. 6, at 7 p.m.
