The first night of football is nearly complete. And it was as good one.
I was out at Heights, and the Falcons defeated Bishop Carroll 21-0. That Heights defense was impressive. Hutchinson loses in OT to Rockhurst, 29-28. Sounds like another awfully good game. Andale beats Wellington, Andover loses to McPherson, which had a great game by QB Tyler Matthews, and Buhler rolled past Rose Hill.
