West traveled to Ulysses Thursday and could not bring victories back to Liberal.

The seventh grade got off to a slow start and never recovered in a 40-6 loss.

“It was a tough ball game,” West coach Butch King said. “We didn’t play well. Ulysses played a good game. We didn’t play as well as we have been.”

West had to play without starting quarterback and middle linebacker Chris Bowman who was sick.

“They got a score early and we never rebounded from that,” King said. “When you bring in a new quarterback, it changes up the exchange with the center and running backs. It has an effect. But we expect our guys to adjust to that.”

West added a touchdown late in the game hen Trey Stout threw a pass to Cade Hinkle who got behind the defense and scampered 75 yards for a touchdown to avoid the shutout.

Defensively, the Warriors could not slow down the Ulysses offense.

“We did not tackle well,” King said. “And not having Bowman in there played a role, too.”

The loss dropped the Warriors to 3-1 on the season.

“We are going back to work on fundamentals and doing things right,” King said. “That will be our focus — running things they way they are supposed to be ran. We won’t be making any wholesale changes, just focus on what needs to be done.”

After a tough loss to Kenneth Henderson a week before, the eight graders jumped out to a quick lead for the second week in a row but watched that lead disappear in a 34-16 loss.

Nick Zimmerman had a family emergency, and King stepped in to help coach the eighth graders.

West jumped out to a 16-0 lead, bu that would be the only points the Warriors would score.

Jared Hasik threw a 25-yard touchdown pass for the first score of the game and later ran in a 20-yard bootleg.

But Ulysses cord 34 unanswered point to win the game.

South and West will square off Thursday at Redskins Field.

Games begin at 5 p.m.
