Mother Nature decided she wanted to interfere with Homecoming activities scheduled for Wednesday in Eudora.  Originally, the Homecoming parade was scheduled to begin at 5:30 PM and the ensuing pep rally was to take place in CPA Park. Due to the inclement weather possibilities, the parade was cancelled and the pep rally was moved to the EHS Gymnasium.  Homecoming candidates along with the fall sports teams were introduced to the crowd indoors.

Homecoming activities will continue through the next couple of days, depending on weather situations. As of publication time, the EHS Soccer game set for 5:00 P.M. Thursday is still a go.  The weather forecast does call for thunderstorms throughout the day on Thursday.

Friday, the EHS Football team will play Basehor-Linwood at Eudora District Stadium.  Game time is 7:00 P.M.  The Homecoming King and Queen will be announced at halftime.  While rain is currently not expected on Friday, you might want to take some warmer clothes (and possibly a parka). The Friday forecast is for dry conditions, but it is expected to partly cloudy and windy with the high during the day reaching only 57. The overnight low is expected to get down to 38 degrees.  At game time, the temperature is expected to be in the upper 40’s.

Weren’t we all wearing shorts at last weeks game?  Well, welcome to Kansas…..

Eudora News and Informationwww.eudorareporter.com

It may have not been pretty, but style points don’t figure into putting one in the win column.  The Cardinals outlasted the Wellsville Eagles Friday night at Eudora District Stadium 19-16 to get up to .500 on the season.

Eudora did not get the win by looking good, but the defense came up big when they needed to, stopping Wellsville near the goal line many times.  Eudora got on the scoreboard midway through the first quarter when QB Austin Downing scored on a 13 yard run. The Cards went for the extra point, but a mishandled snap on the attempt left them with a 6-0 lead.

The teams went back and forth down the field in the remainder of the first half with the only highlight being Grant Elston making a short appearance at QB and punter.  Elston was injured two weeks ago in the loss to Louisburg. Elston handed the ball off several times in his return and appeared to be in the game for evaluation purposes to see how his ankle is healing.

“He’s making progress,” Head Coach Jess Owen said following the game. “We wanted to give him a couple of series.  He could have played some more, but we’re glad to have him back.”

The Second half started off with some excitement. The Cardinals received the opening kickoff and took the ball to their own 39. The very first offensive play following the return, Downing took off and scored a 61 yard rushing touchdown.  Eudora went for the two point conversion and couldn’t run it in giving them a 12-0 lead.

The teams went back forth in a game that saw so many yellow flags on the ground, you would have thought Dorothy and Toto were going to have a yellow road to stroll down. The unofficial count for penalties was 19 with Eudora accounting for 13 of them.

In the fourth quarter, Eudora again scored early when Downing broke off another long run, this time for 79 yards. Eudora hit the extra poitn kick and took a 19-0 lead. Wellsville then finally got into the game. Wellsville Senior Brett Osbern scored on a 21 yard run with 10:48 left. The extra point kick cut the Eudora lead to 11.  Wellsville again found the end zone when QB Cole Silsby hit Osbern with a 46 yard pass. The successful two-point conversion cut Eudora’s lead to 3 with 5:29 left.  On the ensuing drive Downing fumbled the ball right at the 50 yard line giving Wellsville hope of taking the lead, but Wellsville could not get any offense going and the Cards won by the 19-16 final.

Eudora’s defense made some key stops near the end zone on long Wellsville drives during the entire game.  The defense seemed to have a bend but don’t break style of play.

“As a whole, we obviously improved from a week ago, but we have a lot of room for improvement,” Owen said.  “We still had some bad pursuit angles, we still are dropping our heads a lot and we had just way to many missed tackles.”

Eudora will celebrate their Homecoming game next Friday night when Basehor-Linwood comes to town.  The Bobcats are 3-1 on the season with wins over Baldwin, Lansing and Turner High School. Their sole loss came against Bonner Springs, a team Eudora beat in the season opener.
