SALINA — McPherson High’s ninth-grade football team waited too long to get started on Monday in dropping a 19-14 road decision to Salina South.

The Bullpups were down 19-0 after three quarters, but stormed back with a pair of fourth-quarter scores.

Kyler Hoppes ran for a touchdown and threw to Gabe Hoover for another. Hoppes also ran in a 2-pointer.

The Bullpups will be home on Monday to take on Andale

• JV GAME CANCELLED — MHS’ JV team got off to good start against the Cougars with a 3-and-out on defense and then a long drive that ended at the South 3 only to stall out.

But at that point lightning hit and the game was halted, never to be resumed.

MHS is home Monday to play Andale.
