This last week the Indians football team had their Senior Night here at North. It was the final home football game and also the annual “pink-out” game.

The game was against arch rival Shawnee Mission Northwest Cougars.

The Cougars came in with a 1-6 record while North came in at 0-7. Both teams were in need of a win to stay alive for a playoff race.

The game started off fast with Northwest driving down on their first possession to take the lead 7-0.

After a 3 and out for the Indians, Northwest drove down again making the score 14-0. Later in the first half the indians finally drove down and scored on a fumble recovered for a touchdown by senior Nick Finazzo.

At the end of the first half The Cougars held the lead 28-6.

In the 3rd quarter Northwest scored two more touchdowns making it 42-6.

At the end of the 4th quarter junior Michael Williams was able to score another touchdowns for The Indians.

The final score of the game was 42-14.

Next week The Indians will play their final game against the Lancers of Shawnee Mission East for the Nut Cup trophy.

The game will start at 7 p.m. at Shawnee Mission District Stadium South Location.
