Area Football Roundup (Week of Oct. 8, 2008)


The Bluebirds preserved their top-2 ranking in the Wichita Eagle poll with a 52-7 win at Stafford on Friday night.

Goessel scored three times in the first quarter before Stafford returned a kickoff 78 yards for their only score of the night.

Craig Banman scored five touchdowns: one by way of Austin Unruh pass, one by way of 22-yard fumble recovery, one by punt return and two by way of rush.

Unruh went 32 yards for a first quarter score and Kendall Voth caught a touchdown pass early in the second period. The game ended at half-time by way of the eight-man 45 point rule.

Up next, Goessel (5-0) travels to Little River for and Heart of America League game this Friday. It will also count in the district column, in which the Bluebirds are 3-0.
