In the first high school football game of the 2020 season in Kansas, Hays High took a 19-10 road victory at Goddard-Eisenhower on Thursday.
The Indians gave up an early safety but scored two touchdowns in the first half to take a 13-2 lead into halftime. Roy Moroni had a short touchdown run, and Dylan Dreiling hit Jaren Kanak for a 50-yard touchdown pass.
Eisenhower cut the deficit to three after a long touchdown drive in the third quarter. Hays made it a two-possession game when Dreiling hit Kanak for a 5-yard touchdown on a fourth-and-goal in the fourth, and Gavin Meyers later sealed it with an interception.
The Indians (1-0) will play at Great Bend next Friday.
