In the first week of playoffs for Week 9, the Indians defeated Hill City, 68-22. Friday night at Leoti, they scored 68 points again, this time in a 68-0 victory over Rawlins County in a regional match up.

Wichita County, now 10-0 overall, will host Attica/Argonia, 9-1, at 6 p.m. on Friday in a sectional quarterfinals game.

Wichita County is the only southwest Kansas school still alive in the playoffs.

In a Class 3A regional game Friday, Scott City dropped a road contest to Riley County, 43-14. The Beavers finish the season with a 6-4 overall record.
