December 6, 2013

— Tonganoxie trailed by just four points early in the fourth quarter, but couldn't find an answer for a late Lansing surge in a 72-56 loss Friday in the season opener for both teams.

The Chieftains (0-1, 0-1 Kaw Valley League) entered the second half trailing by just a point, but the Class 5A Lions (1-0, 1-0) never relinquished the lead, scoring 27 points in the final period.

Lansing's Zach Jackson led all scorers with 28 points, including four 3-pointers. Joe Schneider added 13 — 11 in the fourth quarter. Jack Dale and Tyler Ford led Tonganoxie with 14 and 10 points, respectively.

The Chieftains will host defending 4A state champion Ottawa on Friday.
