KENESAW — It was a night of big plays. Unfortunately, Kenesaw didn't make enough of them.

The Blue Devils exploded for seven touchdowns of at least 35 yards long but the Kansas team that Kenesaw faced lit up the scoreboard for 11 TDs enroute to a 78-56 victory over the Blue Devils.

Clifton-Clyde High was the opponent Friday night and the Eagles punched away at Kenesaw for 58 points by halftime. It was the second straight game that the Blue Devils' offense has looked impressive while its defense struggled.

Last Friday, Kenesaw outscored Pleasanton 56-42 in the season opener.

"Defensively, we're just not there yet. We've got young kids. We got into position a lot but our tackling is just not there yet. That's something we just need to keep working on," said Kenesaw coach Craig Schnitzler. "You put up 48 last week, 78 today, we've just got to keep plugging away and come up with ways to help these kids become better players."
