Cardinals win 28-19
October 23, 2003
The Eudora Cardinals football team upended the De Soto Wildcats 28-19 Friday night at Laws Field. In what has become a far-too-common trend, the Cards came out strong and faded as the game developed. “We can’t blow anybody out,” said Eudora head coach Gregg Webb. “We want to play a tough game every week. I don’t know if we lose concentration or other teams start making adjustments, and our offensive line has a hard time with it.”

County requests city help with ‘dog fight’

The Council is studying the information and will revisit the issue Monday at its meeting at 7:30 p.m. at Eudora City Hall, 4 E. Seventh St. Jones said the county needed the Council’s approval to enforce the law in Eudora.
