Chieftain football also suffers big injuries in loss to archrival
Friday’s game started the season off with a wild rivalry contest, but Tonganoxie High eventually fell in an offensive shootout and lost offensive weapons in the process. THS and Basehor-Linwood combined for 89 points in the football season opener for both schools at BLHS, but the Bobcats held on for a 47-42 victory in the back-and-forth battle. It was a rough start to the game when THS junior quarterback Trevor McGraw went down with an injury during the first series.
