Tonganoxie upends Lansing
By Ian Stanford The Leavenworth Times
It was a rough start to 2012 for the Lansing football.
After just two conference wins in the last two years (both against Bishop Ward), Tonganoxie started the coach Al Troyer era with a win Friday, upsetting Lansing on their home turf, 22-20.
It was the Lions’ first loss to Tonganoxie since 2006.
The Lions’ pass-heavy offense dazzled with two long TD completions in the first half, but in the second half it was Cole Holloway and the Chieftain defense that stole the show.
Down 13-7 at half, Tonganoxie took momentum early in the third quarter with two Holloway touchdown runs, one on a bruising 5-yard push, the other on a breakaway 49-yard sprint.
The Lions’ five-point advantage became a nine-point deficit in the blink of an eye.
