Kingman versus Larned Football 9-19-14

Week Three of the Football took me to Larned to watch two new rivals face off. The Indians hosted the Kingman Eagles.

With the Eagles riding a two game shut out streak, the game looked to be a defensive battle. Both teams possessed and moved the ball, but could not find points in the First Half as they were scoreless going into Halftime.

The first punt of the night came late in the Third Quarter. Then with less than two minutes remaining on the clock, Kingman put up the first points with a field goal. That was enough to secure the 3 to 0 victory.

Hays versus Great Bend Football 9-12-14

Great Bend’s first home Football game of the year was a homecoming of sorts. The Hays Indians moved down to Class 4A Division I, causing the annual Panthers versus Indians matchup to move up on the calendar.

That wasn’t the only move, as Bo Black moved across the field to take over the Head Coaching duties at Hays.

Once the game started, Hays jumped out to a big lead behind the athletic legs of Senior Quarterback Alex Delton. Delton and the Indians poured on the offense and won the game 49 to 6.

Kansas State Fair Debate – US Senator Pat Roberts and Greg Orman 9-6-14

After the Governor Candidates’ debate, I stuck around for the debate for the US Senate seat.

This debate took on new significance late in the week as the Democratic Nominee, Chad Taylor, withdrew from the race. That development left only two people on the stage, the incumbent US Senator, Pat Roberts, and businessman Greg Orman who is running as an Independent.

The close nature of the race brought National media to Hutchinson as reporters from the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and MSNBC attended.

Kansas State Fair Debate – Governor Sam Brownback and Rep. Paul Davis 9-6-14

I went down to Hutchinson for the 2014 Kansas State Fair’s Gubernatorial Debate between Governor Sam Brownback and House Minority Leader State Representative Paul Davis.

The stands were full of boisterous supporters for both candidates. Each candidate delivered the details and issues they wanted and gave their supporters reasons to stand and cheer.

Both candidates are scheduled for three more debates before Election Day.

The first week of High School Football brought an early start with a Thursday game between the McPherson Bullpups and the Salina South Cougars.

Both teams came out from the locker rooms ready to run. The First Quarter saw a combined thirty points and felt like a track meet with all of the quick scoring.

As the game went on, thing slowed down and the Cougars took control on their way to a 61 to 32 victory.
