New time for kickoff of Tonganoxie-Hayden game; directions to stadium
Game starts at 2:30 p.m.
Saturday's Tonganoxie-Hayden football playoff game has been set for 2:30 p.m. in Topeka -- a half-hour earlier than the time originally agreed to, THS athletics director Brandon Parker said Thursday.
The Chieftains (9-1) defeated Basehor-Linwood, 34-10, Tuesday in Tonganoxie, while the Wildcats (10-0) defeated Marysville, 29-0, Tuesday in Topeka.
The regional game will be played on Hayden's home field, located at 401 SW Gage Blvd. in Topeka. Originally, the game was set for 3 p.m., but Hayden school officials balked at the 3 p.m. start, so the game was moved up by a half-hour.
