HHS football team opens its season in dramatic fashion
Hillsboro Trojans Tyler Jones (left) and Taylor Hagen bring down a Sacred Heart kick returner early in the second half of Friday’s season opener at Salina. The Trojans stopped a 2-point conversion attempt with 41 seconds left in the game to preserve a dramatic 35-34 victory. The six high schools in the Free Press distribution area began their first full week of fall sports competition; even the weather cooperated with unseasonably cool temperatures.
