In their second district game on Oct. 20, the Conway Springs football team took on the previously undefeated Cheney Cardinals. CSHS shut out their opponent for the fourth time this season with a score of 41-0, putting up 454 total yards that all came from a strong run game.

“We got knocked out [of playoff contention] last year, so we wanted redemption this year,” senior quarterback Colton Terhune said.

Terhune and senior running back Trenton Jones led the Cardinal offense with a combined 342 yards and five touchdowns. Jones has racked up more than 1600 yards this year with an average of 16 yards per carry and has found the endzone 24 times. Terhune is close behind with 17 touchdowns and an average of nearly 12 yards per carry.

“We expected a lot of passes, but they went more to their running back,” junior middle linebacker Aaron May said. “I didn’t expect to shut them out, but we did.”

May led the Cardinals’ dominant defense, recording six solo tackles. Defensive ends junior Daniel Becker and senior Matthew Lange put pressure on the offense, creating three total sacks. Lange also had two tackles that resulted in a loss of yards.

“It’s going to be a challenge, but we expect to overcome adversity and win games,” senior and captain wide receiver Chase Blaine said.

The win over Cheney clinched a playoff berth for the Conway Cardinals. Their first playoff game will take place at CSHS on Oct. 31 against Wichita Independent.
