Kansas Class 3A District 9 Week 8

Douglass won big in the first week of district play 64-20 over Belle Plain.  Both of the teams I predicted that would come out of this district came out with wins last Friday night.  Leon Bluestem edged out Wichita Independent 8-7.  The good news for Independent was this was the fewest points they have allowed in a game this season. This week should be a good one in district 8.

Wichita Independent @ Douglass

Douglass is coming off their first victory of the season after scoring 64 points against Belle Plain. Wichita Independent is still looking for a victory .  Douglass has shown that it can score some points .  The Bulldogs should be able to win this game with their offense against  Wichita Independent to start district play 2-0 .  Independent is only averaging 192 yards total offense per game and I just don’t think that will cut it .

My prediction – Douglass 32 Wichita Independent 13

Belle Plain @ Leon Bluestem 

Belle Plain has now given up more than 50 points in each of its 6 losses this season .  However I think this game will be a lot closer than some think. Bluestem is looking to get to .500 on the season.  The Lions defense hasn’t stopped many teams this year either.  This could be one of those games that looks like a track meet .  Leon Bluestem will need this win if they want the opportunity to make the playoffs.

My prediction – Leon Bluestem 52 Belle Plain 38
