American Legion AAA Zone Tournament Hays vs Great Bend 7-15-17

A humid morning turned into a hotter afternoon as the Great Bend Chiefs and the Hays Eagles squared off in the American Legion Baseball AAA Zone Tournament. This game would decide the team to face McPherson for a berth to the State Tournament.

Both teams sent players to the plate, but none of them could get the man around the horn to reach home until the sixth inning. In that late frame, Great Bend put up three runs that sealed the victory for the Chiefs.

The Chiefs’ players would only have a short time to rest before they faced the McPherson Seniors in about 30 minutes.

Spearville Football vs Ness City 10-3-14

Week Five of the football season saw the first District matchup for most teams. I went to the Eight Man Division I District 7 game featuring the Spearville Lancers versus the Ness City Eagles.

Spearville came in undefeated and Ness City had just recorded their first loss of the year the previous week. The Lancers jumped out to a quick two score lead and end the end, that advantage was the difference on the night. Ness City would respond with touchdowns of their own, but could not overcome the early lead they had spotted, falling 50 to 38.

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.
