Kickapoo airs it out in victory over Waynesville

Springfield, Mo. (  -- Kickapoo’s record goes to 3-0 after its win over Waynesville, 36-6, on Friday night. Anthony Cooper was 12-for-22 passing for 263 yards, including two touchdowns to Jamariqune Green and one to Corbin Harris.

This game prepared coach Joel Wells and his players for next week’s game against Camdenton. Both teams will enter the Ozark Conference contest 3-0.

“This was a nice win,” Wells said. “I thought our kids came out and played extremely hard, and were real focused. We jumped on them early and it ended up going our way. It feels great to be 3-0. The kids have a mission and they deserve to be where they’re at right now. We go to Camdenton next week and we know that it’s going to be a big game.”

Kickapoo led by as many as 23 in the second quarter before Waynesville could even get a chance to score.


The Chiefs scored on their third play when Cooper threw a 32-yard pass completion to Green with 10:36 left in the first quarter.

Waynesville’s defense stopped Cooper on the next drive and forced the Chiefs to kick a 15-yard field goal that brought the score to 10-0.

Kickapoo scored again on their second possession of the second quarter when Cooper connected with Green yet again for a 79-yard pass completion that brought the score to 17-0.

Green thought that he executed well during this game and is looking forward to next week.

“They say Camdenton is the best so far, I’m ready for it,” said Green.

John Fuchs, who had 6 rushes for 46 yards, scored for the Chiefs with 4:02 left of the first half, which brought the score to 23-0.

Ronald McLean, who had 14 carries for 58-yards, would score the only touchdown for the Tigers.

Wells used one of his plays from his bag of tricks to end the first half. Cooper tossed a backward pass to Isaac Johnson, who then launched it downfield to Taylor Simmons that brought the Chiefs to Waynesville’s 5, where Kelton Reeves then ran in for a touchdown that brought the score to 29-6.

Kickapoo scored again after Fuchs made his second interception of the night. Cooper then had a 30-yard pass completion to Harris that ended scoring for both teams for the night with a final score of 36-6.
