LYNDON—If was a game of two halves, Lyndon just had more of an advantage in theirs.

After a blowout first half, the Tigers held off a 20-6 onslaught by Council Grove in the second half to beat the Braves 39-34 Friday night in Lyndon.

The Tigers took off in the first half, scoring on a 3-yard touchdown run by Trey Brown, a 31-yard touchdown pass from Jordan Tillman to Curtis Wendling, and a 34-yard touchdown pass from Tillman to Wendling in the second quarter. The Tigers led 20-0 before Council Grove even got on the board.

Indians delayed, denied at Eskridge


ESKRIDGE—Numerous football games were delayed and postponed Friday night as a large line of storms drove along and north of Interstate 70.

“The game was called with 10 minutes or so left in the second quarter,” said Osage City Coach Andrew Gantenbein. “After waiting until 10 p.m. to try to resume, we postponed it until Saturday at 6 p.m.”

The Indians were leading before the break, scoring the only points of the first quarter on a 31-yard field goal by Sultan Cousin, his first of the season.

“We were up 3-0 and playing pretty decent,” Gantenbein said. “A completely different team showed up Saturday.”
