On Oct. 25, the Indian football team lost to Salina Central, 35-3. The only Hays High points of the game were from a field goal from senior Matthew Goodale. 

The Indians struggled both offensively and defensively throughout the game. They turned the ball over twice and fumbled once in the first half alone. 

The three points made the score 7-3 late into the first quarter. On another play, the Indians drove to their 23 yard line, but then got called for holding and fumbled the ball on the next down.  

The score was 14-3 in favor of the Mustangs going into halftime.  

In the third quarter, the Indian defense provided two opportunities to score, but the offense could never convert any of those opportunities into points.  

The Indians gave up 21 points to the Mustangs in the second half while they never scored again.  

This loss puts their record at 3-4, and they will travel to Goddard Eisenhower for the first game of playoffs.
