KVL football report: Week Seven
The battle for supremacy on Highway 24-40 went down to the wire and then some Friday night as Basehor-Linwood needed two overtimes and a goal-line stand to hold off Tonganoxie, 28-27, in their district opener.
The Bobcats gave the Chieftains their first KVL loss of the season and, in the process, guaranteed Turner at least a share of the league crown. The Golden Bears wrapped up their league slate last week with a 4-1 record and needed someone to beat Tonganoxie to forge at least a tie atop the standings.
Currently, BLHS, Turner and Tonganoxie all have one league loss and are tied atop the standings with the unbalanced league schedule.
Neither Basehor nor Tonganoxie are in the clear yet, though. Both have two league games remaining in their Class 4A district, and neither game will be easy. Piper edged Bishop Ward, 27-19, in the other district opener in what is widely considered one of the toughest districts in the state in any class.
In the 5A ranks, all for KVL teams at the 5A classification won their district openers. Mill Valley and Lansing both shut out their opponents, while Turner needed overtime to beat Sumner Academy and Bonner Springs needed a touchdown in the final minutes.
