Parkway North's daring playbook and valiant defense not enough to defeat the Statesmen behind a career night by Marlon Peal.
Webster Groves used a career night from running back Marlon Peal Friday, as the Statesmen went on the road to defeat Parkway North 28-14 in the last game of the regular season. Peal, a senior, had touchdown runs of 20, 68 and 78 yards en route to a 24 carry-336 yard night. And yet, with all that, the game itself was still largely in doubt until the last 2 minutes. Check out our Facebook Photo Gallery From The Game North's opening drive included a successful fake punt and a 4th down coversion at the Webster Groves 30 yard line but the Vikings could not turn that into points against the 5th ranked team in Class 5. When a pooch punt turned into a touchback, Peal flipped the field with a 64 yard scamper that led to Bri'on Sanders' 24 yard …

The Cadets played like the number one team in the state with a decisive win on the road against the Spartans.
CBC used a powerful display in all three phases of the game at De Smet to capture the school's third consecutive Metro Catholic Conference crown, with a 49-12 win Friday night in Creve Coeur. "They know what they want, they're pretty hungry this year," Cadets Head Coach Scott Pingel said. The hungriest player on the field may have been CBC Running Back Jonathan Parker, who rushed 15 times for 118 yards and accounted for 4 touchdowns on the evening. Parker, who gave a verbal pledge to play college football at Tulsa last month, dropped a wide open pass on a halfback option in the first quarter, but darted around Spartan defenders on the very next play for a 35 yard touchdown. After the teams traded punts, a De Smet drive deep into CBC …

"We had a very emotional win last week and I just worried about our intensity and our fire and I challenged our kids and I feel like they lived up to the challenge," Central Head Coach Mark Goldenberg said. Check out our Facebook Photo Gallery From The Game After the the teams traded punts for most of the first quarter, a Parkway Central 82 yard drive exclusively on the ground except for a pass play from Zach Lazenby to Jake Bushman ended with a Lazenby …
