Eudora Cardinal football notebook
Already in, now just win
Eudora's win Friday against De Soto combined with Spring Hill's 49-22 loss to Baldwin ensured the Cardinals a spot in the postseason.
Eudora and Baldwin both currently sit at 2-0 in district play, Baldwin also picking up a 35-0 win against De Soto in its district opening contest.
There's plenty to play for when the two teams butt heads Friday, however.
The winner will win the district and play Tuesday at home against the winner of Thursday's St. James Academy versus Bishop Ward game.
Both St. James (3-3) and Ward (4-4) beat district foe Piper and both lost to guaranteed district champion Basehor-Linwood.
The loser will travel Tuesday to Basehor (4-4), who plays its last game of the season Thursday against Piper.
The Cardinals just have to beat Baldwin to ensure at least one more home game.
Oh, that's all?
Thursday's game against the 6-2 Bulldogs won't be easy. Factor in that Baldwin will be playing at home on senior night and looking to avenge Eudora's 14-0 victory last season and it becomes down right scary.
Eudora will face one of the toughest running attacks its seen this season in Baldwin's single wing style offense.
The Bulldogs forgo the formality of a quarterback, instead relying on direct snaps to a stable of three hand-nosed runners.
The unique offense has helped Baldwin rebound in 2007 after posting a 4-5 record a year ago.
Not that it takes any stats or a scary offense to clue Eudora into what a danger Baldwin can be at hom. The Cardinals lost regular season loss came at Baldwin City two years ago.
