Season over: Bobcats stumble against Sabres
The unbeaten regular season was nice, but it didn't do anything to help Basehor-Linwood win in the Class 4A football state playoffs.
The Bobcats had home-field advantage Tuesday night against Sumner Academy, but the Sabres won the battle of the scoreboard.
Sumner 36, Basehor-Linwood 22.
Sumner jumped out to a 16-0 lead at halftime and held a 24-0 advantage just two minutes into the third quarter, but BLHS rattled off 22 unanswered points in the third quarter to make things interesting.
Ultimately, Sumner tacked on two more touchdowns and put the game away.
Basehor-Linwood ends its season with a 9-1 record. Sumner (9-1) advances to play Baldwin (9-1) on Saturday.
