kansasKansas @ North Shelby

This week, Kansas School for the Deaf is packing up and heading on the road for the first time this season. It faces off against North Shelby on Thursday at 5:30 PM. With three consecutive blowout wins, Kansas School for the Deaf is looking for someone to give it a good challenge; hopefully North Shelby will step up.

Kansas School for the Deaf can now show off three landslide victories after its game last week. It picked up a decisive 'W' against Oklahoma School for the Deaf last week, finishing up at 54-6.

Meanwhile, the state rankings speculated that North Shelby might be blown out last week, and the rankings were right on the money. It simply didn't have it last week, losing 64-6 to Stanberry. The team got a solid performance out of junior Mason Uhlmeyer (he earned one touchdown and 61 yards rushing the ball); unfortunately, it just wasn't enough for the win.

North Shelby's defeat dropped it to 2-5 while Kansas School for the Deaf's victory brought it to 4-1.

washingtonWashington vs Naselle

Naselle (4-1) and Washington School for the Deaf (2-1) are set to face off this Thursday at 3:30 PM. Naselle is coming into the game hot, having won four in a row.

Naselle can now show off three landslide victories after its game last week. It picked up a decisive 'W' against Taholah last week, finishing up at 60-14.

Meanwhile, last game was the first rocky defensive outing for Washington School for the Deaf this year. It has to be hurting after a devastating 48-24 defeat at the hands of Mary M. Knight last game.

The last time they met, Naselle really took it to Washington School for the Deaf, winning 46-8. Their game was over by halftime, with Naselle up 40-0. The rematch might be a little tougher for it since the team will be on Washington School for the Deaf's home field this time.
