CHETOPA — Marmaton Valley High bounced back from an earlier loss for a resounding victory on Friday.

The Wildcats, coming off a home loss to Crest on Monday, enjoyed a 66-14 romp over Chetopa.

Marmaton Valley’s youth movement was key, with freshmen Brayden Lawson and Jaedon Granere playing key roles.

Lawson suited up at quarterback, and completed 4 of 5 passes for 70 yards and two touchdowns. He also rushed four times, covering 50 yards, and scoring another touchdown.

Meanwhile, Granere rushed only four times, but amassed a whopping 105 yards and three touchdowns while doing so. He also caught a pair of passes for 29 yards with a touchdown.

Lest anyone forget about the upperclassmen, senior Quincy Adams returned a punt 50 yards for a touchdown, while rushing three times for 44 yards and hauling in a 39-yard reception. He also had 3½ tackles and 1½ sacks. Lawson had 1½ sacks and two tackles.

Bryce Ensminger also was a beast inside, with two tackles, two sacks, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery.

Marmaton Valley was 7 of 8 on third-down conversions in the contest.

The Wildcats are back in action Friday at Cedar Vale/Dexter.
