Basehor, 4-5 entering the game, scored on its first drive of the game and on one of its last to hold off a fourth-quarter charge by Eudora, 8-2 after the loss. Tyler Miles of Basehor scored both touchdowns.

Eudora took the lead late, first scoring with a safety when Chase Rust sacked the quarterback in the endzone. Matthew Abel then put the Cardinals up 8-6 with a 16-yard touchdown run minutes later. The Bobcats came back, however, Miles going in from 12 yards with five minutes, six seconds remaining in the game.
