The Lansing Lions may have fallen Friday night in the regular season football finale, but they still have the luxury of opening the Class 5A playoff next week at home.

Bonner Springs rallied from a 7-0 deficit for 21 unanswered points over the game’s final 16 minutes to defeat the Lions 21-7 as both prepare for the playoffs.

The official brackets will be released Saturday so check back at or read the Leavenworth Times on Tuesday.

Quinton McQuillan scored the only Lansing (4-4) touchdown as the Lions appear to be set for as high as a No. 6 seed to no lower than the No. 8 spot.

Lansing will play Bonner Springs again next week.

“I am proud of our guys and how we played defensively, but we need to score more points,” Lansing head coach John McCall said. “Everyone knows that you don’t win a lot of games when you have seven points on the board. We need a break here, a break there, because the kids are playing so hard.”
