The Mid-Missouri Outlaws spent a lot of time on the Topeka Savage’s end of the field Saturday.
The Outlaws’ defense dominated the Central Plains Football League game in their 55-6 victory in Topeka, Kan.
Mid-Missouri sacked the Topeka quarterback 12 times, forced four safeties and intercepted one pass.
The Outlaws offense sputtered early, leading only 16-0 at halftime. They began to heat up in the third, pushing their lead to 28-6. They scored 27 points in the fourth quarter.
Quarterback Kyle Middleton completed 22 of 38 passes for 207 yards and six touchdowns.
Ben Lyles caught six passes including one for a touchdown for 80 yards.
Mike Loveless ran for 72 yards on 11 carries including a touchdown.
The Outlaws (5-0) will host Junction City, Kan., (2-2) at 3 p.m. April 26 at State Fair Community College. They are entering a bye week.
The two teams just behind Mid-Missouri in the CPFL standings met Saturday with the Independence Bulldogs beating the Missouri Mustangs 48-34.
Those three teams are the only teams in the conference who have scored more points than they have allowed.
