Lee's Summit improved to 5-0 in dramatic fashion Friday, earning a 44-38 win against Raymore-Peculiar when Casey Slaughter ran for a touchdown with less than a minute to play. It's the second consecutive late-game victory for the Tigers, who defeated Liberty the week before on a game-winning field goal as time expired. Lee's Summit finished 3-7 last season but has turned a corner behind quarterback Drew Lock.
Bonner Springs, 4-0, coasted to its fourth straight win, a 42-6 victory against Piper. The Braves have already surpassed last season's win total of three. They have scored 40-plus points in all four wins this season and will travel Friday to Mill Valley with first place in the Kaw Valley League on the line.
