The Hayden Wildcats and Rossville Bulldawgs are carrying the Shawnee County banner into the sub-state round of the state football playoffs. Hayden’s 40-12 win over Girard earns them a rematch against Holton for the right to play for a Class 4A-II state title. Hayden beat Holton 47-32 earlier in the season. In class 3A, Rossville pasted Caney Valley 67-31 to return to sub-state as they look for a third straight state title. They face unbeaten Nemaha Central on Friday.
