Lansing 42, Tonganoxie 24
Lansing — One-win Tonganoxie led one-loss Lansing on the road midway through the fourth quarter before a familiar THS bugaboo allowed the Lions to take control.
The makings of an upset quickly were dashed with three fourth-quarter turnovers by the Chieftains, who turned the ball over five times for the second week in a row.
Lansing (5-1) didn’t capitalize after picking up a high snap early in the fourth quarter, but later took a 28-24 lead with 4:59 remaining.
On Tonganoxie’s next possession, it lost a fumble on the second play and the Lions scored with a 16-yard run by Nick Hughes three downs later.
Already trailing by two scores, the Chieftains fumbled on their third play on the ensuing drive, which led to yet another Lansing TD, this time on a 50-yard run by Spencer Blew.
Although Tonganoxie senior defensive back Shawn Marin stripped an LHS ball carrier and recovered a fumble in the first quarter and senior safety Jeff Sims picked off a pass late in the third quarter, the Chieftains (1-5) finished minus-three in turnovers thanks to not only their late mistakes but also lost fumbles on their first two plays from scrimmage.
Tongie will begin Class 4A district play Friday at Perry-Lecompton.

Louisburg 42, Baldwin 26
Louisburg — Second-half turnovers doomed Baldwin to its first loss.

After trading three-and-outs, Baldwin threw an interception at midfield, which was returned for a Louisburg touchdown. Baldwin's final turnover was a fumble on its next possession.
In the first half, Baldwin fell behind 14-0 early, but rallied to tie the game in the second quarter.
Each team scored a touchdown during the final five minutes of the half.
