After losing to Camdenton last season, Kickapoo avenged the loss by defeating the Lakers Friday in its season opener 24-21. .

Going into halftime the Chiefs tacked on a field goal to give them  a 10-7 lead.
The Lakers made adjustments in the second half and scored two quick third quarter touchdowns to take a 21-10 lead. But the Lakers ran out of gas late in the game, leading to the Chiefs come-from-behind victory.
Laker coach Bob Shore said the team looked good coming out of halftime, but the Lakers had much more two-way players than the Chiefs, which Shore thinks may have caused fatigue late in the first game of the season.
