Losing a quarterback like Grant Adler, as Derby did in Friday night’s huge showdown with Carroll, would be devastating for most teams.

Only Derby’s experienced it before. And Panther coach Brandon Clark has arguably the best back-up plan in the state.

After Adler was lost for the season a year ago in the Panthers’ win over Carroll, Hunter Igo moved over from the defensive side of the ball and was a revelation. He was nothing short of spectacular, rushing for 1,196 yards and 16 touchdowns and throwing for 1,491 yards and 17 scores.

When Adler went down Friday, Igo returned from the defense and did his thing again. He opened the scoring with a two-yard touchdown run and later added a touchdown pass, finishing the game with 111 yards passing and 72 yards rushing as Derby rolled to a 24-6 win

Igo still played defense on Friday and Derby held Carroll to its lowest point total since the 2010 season opener.

It was a good night for another wounded Panther team as well, though the wounds weren’t of a physcial nature, but merely from a record standpoint.

Opening the season with back-to-back losses to Mid-East League powers Rossville and Riley County, Centralia was 1-2 going into Friday’s clash with Class 1A No. 1 Colgan. Colgan had outscored its first three foes 101-14 behind standout quarterback Cade Simmons.

But Centralia controlled this one from start to finish. Getting 235 yards and a touchdown rushing from Isaac Gore and another 136 rushing yards and two scores from Kamble Haverkamp, Centralia blanked Colgan 20-0.

Most impressively, Centralia’s defense held Colgan to just 64 yards of total offense, including none through the air.

The loss dropped Colgan to No. 4 in Class 1A with previous No. 1 Smith Center returning to its spot atop the poll. Olpe moved up to No. 3 after edging Jackson Heights 20-18 for Chris Schmidt’s 100th career victory as Eagle coach.

Ell-Saline moved back into the 1A rankings at No. 5 after a one-week absence, shutting down high-flying Sedgwick 27-13 after the Cardinals had replaced it at the No. 5 spot.

Only one other classification saw a change in the top five. In Class 6A Blue Valley fell out of the rankings after a 42-7 loss to Missouri powerhouse Rockhurst with Topeka High moving in at No. 5 after taking a 56-28 shootou win over Junction City.

Notes — Galena was a perennial contender in the old Class 3A for years and Friday night, the Bears sent a message they will be a tough out in the new 3A this year. Facing a Frontenac team that made the 4A II title game a year ago, Galena dominated en route to a huge 47-0 road victory. Colby and Chapman continued their impressive starts with lopsided road wins and No. 1 Sabetha handled Marysville in a rematch of last year’s 3A championship game.
