Welcome back, Winnetonka.

After being blown out in the season opener against Liberty, the Griffins have reclaimed their top spot in the Suburban Blue Conference power rankings two weeks later.

An out-of-conference matchup between Blue Springs and Lee's Summit West means another No. 1 will fall Friday night. Which one? Grab a copy of Friday's paper for a further breakdown of that matchup and four others of the best the area has to offer this week.

SUBURBAN GOLD CONFERENCE

1. Blue Springs (3-0, 0-0): Wildcats defensive line recorded six sacks in win over Rockhurst

Briley Moore-McKinney for game-winning TD in OT against Ray-Pec

5. Lee's Summit North (2-1, 0-1): Broncos are improved but not among league's big boys ... yet
