Andrew Khoury rolled to his right and fired a pass into the right back corner of the end zone into the hands of Ethan Alcorn for the game winning score in a 48-41 victory over the previously unbeaten Topeka High Trojans at Hummer Sports Park in the capitol city.

The Blue Jays trailed 35-27 in the fourth quarter but led by the rushing of Russell Wi
lkey Junction City rallied to tie the game at 35-35. The Trojans led by senior standouts, running back Ky Thomas and quarterback Da’Vonshai Harden, responded with a four-play drive  that put Topeka High ahead 41-35 with more than four minutes remaining in the game.

The Blue Jays tied the game and then used their defense to stop the Trojans at the Topeka High 46-yard line. In the final 36 seconds Junction City moved to the 22-yard line, and then Khoury hit Alcorn in the end for the winning score.

Junction City improved to 3-0 in Centennial League play with the win and 4-0 overall, while Topeka High fell to 2-1 in the conference and 3-1 on the season
