To the late-arriving fan at last Friday's Olathe and Cedaredge football game, the 20-6 score on the scoreboard was pleasant for Olathe followers and perplexing to Bruin fans.
Olathe's 14-point lead at the half was short-lived in the second half as Cedaredge stormed out of the locker room after halftime to take total command of the prep gridiron contest.
The Bruins scored first when Reid Gates scampered 59 yards in the opening quarter. A run for a two-point conversion failed and the Bruins led 6-0.
Olathe came back with a score of its own in the first quarter with Rio Green plunging into the end zone from two yards out. The PAT failed, leaving the score tied at 6-6.
Olathe scored the next two touchdowns on a 62-yard interception run from Nicholas Kubin and a 69-yard run by Trent Piatt.
Mitchell Carlson scored the two-point conversion on a pass play to give Olathe its 20-6 halftime lead.
The Bruins came out of their locker room after halftime with a purpose in their demeanor.
Cedaredge drew to within eight after a Peter Williamson 17-yard spurt off right tackle. The two-point conversion attempt failed, to leave the score at 20-12.
The Bruins got the ball back on a deflected pass interception and Xander Camp finished the drive on a 1-yard run. The PAT failed and the score stood at 20-18.
After a negative-yard punt by the Pirates, Cedaredge took over deep in Olathe territory. A 21-yard pass from Trent Walker to Taylor Beach and a two-point conversion pass from Walker gave Cedaredge the lead, 26-20.
Before the third period ended, Cedaredge picked up another two points on a safety, making the score 28-20 heading into the final stanza.
Camp's five-yard run gave Cedaredge its final touchdown and a 34-20 non-conference victory over the Pirates.
Gates was Cedaredge's leading rusher with 104 yard on 20 carries. Williamson added another 49 yard on 11 carries.
The Pirates' Trent Jole was the game's leading rusher with 156 yards on 27 carries.
Walker was seven of 15 for 102 yards and one touchdown.
Beach had two catches for 57 yards to lead the Bruins' receiving corps.
