Afton Prepares for State Championship

Updated:

While most the 4-state area has moved on to basketball, that's not the case for the Afton Eagles.

Afton (13-0) will play in the Class A state championship game on Friday night in Owasso, OK. It's the team's first ever appearance in the state championship game. They will face the Crescent Tigers, a team that is also undefeated at 14-0 overall.

The Eagles have really had no issue making it to their first state championship game. They've won each of their four playoff games by 24 or more points.

Round 1 - beat Savanna 48-7.

Round 2 - beat Cashion 40-14

Quarterfinals - beat Minco 30-6.

Semifinals - beat Thomas 52-7.

Friday's state championship game will be at a familiar place for Afton. They played in Owasso in the state semifinals last season, where they were knocked out of the playoffs losing 43-15.

Kickoff Friday will be at 7:00 pm.

    The Fort Scott, Kansas Police Department says a series of events lead to a fish kill at Gunn Park/Fern Lake. Authorities say hot water temperatures, cloudy windless days, low water levels and an expanding green algae bloom that peaked and crashed were all factors. It created the "perfect storm" or aquatic conditions that depleted and decreased the oxygen level to a point where the aquatic system would not support life.
