Miege beats God­dard for fifth straight Class 4A ti­tle

The Wichita Eagle (Sunday) - - Calendar - BY ALIYAH FUNSCHELLE

The Bishop Miege Stags added a fifth straight

Class 4A foot­ball cham­pi­onship to their tro­phy case Sat­ur­day with a 69-31 de­feat of God­dard.

Miege has now won eight state ti­tles over­all.

“It means a lot to us. It’s hard to do each year, es­pe­cially when there’s a tar­get on your back and every­body ex­pects you to do it,” Miege coach Jon Holmes said.

Miege hit the ground run­ning. Af­ter God­dard fum­bled on the kick­off, the Stags scored the first touch­down of the game on their en­su­ing pos­ses­sion.

The Stags built their first-quar­ter lead to 28-0. God­dard got half of that back on a pair of touch­downs, in­clud­ing a con­tested pass to re­ceiver

Jake Shope that he was able to cor­ral for six points.

But the Stags were un­stop­pable. By half­time, Miege had a 49-24 lead. And they scored on their first pos­ses­sion of the se­cond half, too.

Although the out­come was not what God­dard coach Tommy Bea­son wanted, he’s hope­ful his team will view Sat­ur­day as a learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.
