Hayden passing game stops Buhler


The Wichita Eagle

TOPEKA - Buhler football coach Steve Warner struggled to answer whether the Crusaders' 35-21 loss in the Class 4A semifinals would have had a different result Friday if injured star tailback Jordan Oden had played.

"It's really tough to say that," Warner said. "I thought (backup Tanner Fisher) played really well, he ran hard. With the leadership that Jordan brings, you can't look at it that way."

Even if Oden hadn't suffered a broken collarbone in last week's win over Rose Hill, he might not have made the impact Hayden receiver Sean Morrow made.

When Buhler began stifling Hayden's running game in the second half, the Wildcats began calling Morrow's number. Three of his four touchdown receptions came after halftime as Hayden pulled away after being tied 14-14 at half. The Wildcats meet Bishop Miege in the 4A title game next Saturday in Salina.
