November 3, 2009


Four area football teams will look to continue their seasons tonight, when they open play in the Class 3A and 4A state playoffs.

Two of those squads, Eudora (7-2) and De Soto (4-5), will face off in a first-round 4A matchup at 7 at Laws Field in Eudora.

The Cardinals enter the playoffs on a three-game winning streak and as district champions. De Soto enters the postseason as a district runner-up.

The Cardinals and Wildcats faced each other in Week 2 of the regular season, with Eudora winning, 27-6.

In other Class 4A action tonight, Baldwin High (2-7) will play Bishop Miege (7-2) at 7 in Roeland Park.

The Bulldogs, who struggled early on, advanced to the postseason by winning two of their final three games of the season. They finished as the runners-up in Eudora’s district. Miege, meanwhile was the champion of the district which included De Soto.

The only other area game on the docket tonight involves Class 3A Oskaloosa (7-2), which will travel to Rossville (7-2) for a 7 p.m. kickoff.

Tonight’s winners advance to Saturday, where they’ll play for a spot in the quarterfinals.

So Jefferson West isn't a local team? Less than 30 minutes from Lawrence? We're your adjacent county to the NW! Our first playoff game in years? We're playing tonight!
