Free State lost, 38-20, to Olathe North on Friday at the FSHS football stadium.

Camren Torneden threw a pair of touchdown passes to Aundre Allen. The Firebirds also scored on a flea flicker in the fourth quarter on a 49-yard touchdown strike from Chandler Schmidt to Connor Stremel.

The Firebirds fell to 4-2, while the Eagles improved to 6-0.

The Free State High football team trails Olathe North, 19-6, at halftime at the Firebirds' stadium.

FSHS scored with 28 seconds left in the first half on a 10-yard pass from Camren Torneden to Aundre Allen.

The Firebirds enter the game with a 4-1 record, while O-North is 5-0.

Free State will be facing an uphill battle in the second half of tonight's showdown.

Dubbed by many to be "the biggest game in the state" this week, tonight's game is a rematch of a second-round Class 6A playoff game from last season. In that one, the Firebirds traveled to Olathe and knocked off the Eagles en route to their first appearance in the Class 6A state title game.

North entered tonight's game with revenge on its mind and has had the upper hand thus far.

Too bad they couldn't tackle.

O-North is simply heads and shoulders above Free State. I'd like to see O-North and Hutch play. Too bad they're in different classes.
