Cross Town Toss Up

As the high school football season creeps closer to the end, some teams added to their winning record while others recorded another loss. Tolton and Hickman fell to their opponents this week. Hallsville and Southern Boone were victorious in their games against Blair Oaks and Osage respectively. For the cross town matchup, Battle beat Rock Bridge.

Our team of visual storytellers once again proudly present ‘Friday Night Sights’ — the magic and wonder of Friday night football.
