WYANDOTTE — Trent Turner and Durwaun Roberts finished up their high school football careers with a bang during Monday night’s Wyandotte Lions Club Senior Bowl.
Turner, the former Miami quarterback, passed for 268 yards and three touchdowns.
Roberts, of Vinita, had five TDs and accounted for 227 yards in rushing and receiving during a 39-13 romp by the North. He caught six passes for 191 yards and three scores and rushed for a team-high 36 yards and another TD.
The loss was the first for the South since 2001. It evened the series at 19-19.
Turner, who owns two MHS passing records and is the Wardogs’ second-most prolific passer ever, completed 13 of 21 passes Monday night.
He had a 27-yard shuffle pass and a 58-yard scoring strike for TDs to Roberts in the second quarter.
The pair then teamed up on a 41-yard touchdown in the third period.
Roberts added a 65-yard punt return in the fourth quarter.
A 2-yard run by Miami’s Nathan Hazley with 4:13 remaining capped the scoring for the North.
Both South touchdowns came in the second quarter.
Derrek Brickey of Salina hooked up with Casey Alves of Westville on a 35-yard TD pass with 5:44 until intermission.
Then as time ran out, Brickey lobbed a 6-yard pass to 6-4 tight end Ryan Miller of Grove.
Harrison Kay of Ketchum was the holder on T.J. Griffith’s PAT attempt, but a bad snap forced Kay to scramble. He was run out of bounds by a group of North special teams players just short of the goal line, leaving the North with a 19-13 edge.
The North broke the game open with three touchdowns in an 11-minute span of the third and fourth quarters.
The South was in North territory just twice in the second half and mustered only 50 yards in total offense.
It reached the North 31 with less than a minute left in the third quarter but James Pickens of Miami intercepted Brickey.
Then with time winding down in the game, a 22-yard pass to Griffith moved the ball to the North 28. The South threw in the towel, with Jake Nelson of Grove carrying for 3 yards and lineman Clayton Nichols of Colcord getting the call for the final two times, netting 5 yards.
Roberts and Kay were named the most valuable players for their respective teams.
Kay was the offensive leader for the South, rushing for 72 yards on 16 carries. He also completed two of four passes for 14 yards.
