Derby overcomes Manhattan to get to 6A semifinal
MANHATTAN, Kan. (KWCH) - The Derby Panthers exacted a bit of revenge Friday night, taking down the defending Class 6A champions on the road, 23-21. After losing to Manhattan twice last season -- including in the playoffs -- and coming up short against the Indians again in the first week of this season, the Panthers broke through the frustration in walk-off fashion.
Down 21-20 with 30 seconds left, the Panthers kicked a game-winning field goal. Derby moves on to face undefeated Washburn Rural in Topeka next Friday with the winner advancing to the Class 6A championship game on Nov. 25.
