I'm confused. . .

I was hoping so much that the Lions would win tonight, and this article seems to say as much.

However, Metro Sports KC reports that Leavenworth beat Lawrence 13-6.

Which is correct?

That's great news! We were watching Metro Sports HS RoundUp and they had Leavenworth beating LHS 13-6 on their scoreboard. Happy to hear they were wrong. My kids go to Free State, but I'm an LHS alum and I most definitely did not want to see them end up winless this year. Congratulations Lions!
