Aquinas has established itself as a state powerhouse under Randy Dreiling, as might have been expected.

Yet for all the Saints have accomplished in the short time Dreiling has been there, one very big win had eluded them. Beating arch rival Miege.

Friday night in a battle of arguably the top two teams in the Kansas City metro area (Free State, Gardner-Edgerton in the mix as well), Aquinas finally delivered that win. And did so in a big way.

Riding a record night by sophomore tailback Tyron “Tank” Young, Aquinas steamrolled the top-ranked Stags 41-21. Young set a school record for yards in a game with 312 yards against Miege, rushing for three touchdowns to lead the Saints to the huge victory, moving them up to No. 3 in the Super 10.

Young also broke Aquinas’ single-season rushing mark in the game and now sits at 1,459 yards and 19 touchdowns this season in just seven games.

Miege actually led 14-0 in the first quarter before Aquinas went on a 99-yard scoring drive. That opened the floodgates and Young ran wild to give the Saints their first win over Miege since 2012.

Miege fell from the No. 1 spot in the Super 10, replaced by Derby, which leap-frogged No. 2 Wichita Northwest to take the No. 1 ranking. The Panthers have been nothing short of dominant on both sides of the ball this season.

Aquinas jumped two spots from No. 5 to No. 3 in the Super 10, moving just past Free State, which survived a big battle with Shawnee Mission East 36-30 to stay unbeaten. Miege slipped to No. 5, but still holds on to the No. 1 spot in Class 4A despite having two losses.

SM East didn’t suffer in the polls with its close loss to Free State, staying at No. 8 in the Super 10 and No. 5 in 6A.

There was only slight movement in the other classes with the most notable Burlingame falling out of the Eight-Man Division I rankings after a narrow 24-22 loss to unbeaten Madison. Clifton-Clyde, Hodgeman County and St. Francis each moved up one place and South Central moved in to the No. 5 spot in the rankings.

In Class 4A, Goddard fell out of the top five after a double-overtime loss to Maize South. Pittsburg took the Lions’ spot at No. 4, while unbeaten Louisburg moved in at No. 5 just in time for this week’s big Frontier League clash with No. 3 Paola.

In Class 2A, No. 1 Conway Springs handled its biggest test of the season in a big way, routing No. 4 Chaparral 53-23. Chaparral moved down one spot, trading places with unbeaten Humboldt.

Salina Central was the only other ranked team to fall this week, but the Mustangs remain No. 5 in Class 5A after a 48-26 loss to No. 4 Maize.

But Free State had its hands full with SM East, falling down 19-6 before rallying for a 36-30 victory. Keenan Garber caught four touchdown passes, including one of the final play of the first half that put the Firebirds up 20-19. Tied 27-27 in the second half, Free State took the lead for good on a Jax Dineen touchdown run and then held on late to stay undefeated.

Notes — Scott City gave up almost as many points Friday night to Colby (12) as it had the rest of the season (19). But thanks to 169 yards and three touchdowns from Wyatt Hayes, Colby’s scores weren’t near enough as the Beavers prevailed 35-12. Scott City’s defense held Colby to just 60 yards in the second half.

Notes — The district and Central Plains League battle between Conway Springs and Chaparral figured to be one of the biggest games of the year and early on it was as Chaparral led 7-6 in the first quarter. But the top-ranked Cardinals scored two straight touchdowns and six of the next seven in the game, opening up a 47-17 lead on their way to a 53-23 rout. Conway ran for 375 yards with Peyton Winter (167) and Collin Koester (123) each topping 100 yards.
