Bobcats home finale tomorrow
Basehor-Linwood will take a 3-3 record into Friday night's home finale against Lansing. It is also the start of the "second season" as district play begins. Kickoff is slated for 7 p.m. at Kiester Field.
Lansing also enters the contest with a 3-3 mark. The Bobcats and Lions have two common opponents in DeSoto and Mill Valley. Lansing defeated DeSoto in their opening game of the year, 64-8, and lost to Mill Valley, 13-10. The Lions other two wins came in the previous two weeks, topping Perry-Lecompton, 41-6, and shutting out Columbus, 35-0.
"We win the next three games, we win the league championship and we get to go to the playoffs," B-L head coach Paul Brown said. "So these three games are really important to us. The next three games are what it's all about."
Brown said the Lions have improved their play over last year and will be looking for a little revenge. "They are going to be anxious to get here to play us since we knocked them off at the beginning of the last year."
It could prove to be a very interesting district as all four teams, including Piper and Tonganoxie, have 3-3 records.
Fouts back in action
Basehor-Linwood TE-DE Travis Fouts was cleared to play in the Wamego game just hours before kickoff. Fouts had sustained an eye injury in a gym class a week earlier.
Senior athletes to be honored
