The Junction City Blue Jays will host the Bishop Carroll Golden Eagles tonight at Blue Jay Stadium. 

The Blue Jays are 2-1 on the season with wins over Dodge City and McPherson. Their lone loss against Hays in overtime was in week one. As for the Golden Eagles, they are 1-2 on the season, losing games to Wichita Northwest and Derby. In both of their losses their defense has allowed more than 50 points. 

These two teams met last year in a thrilling game in Wichita with Junction City winning 28-21. 

Junction City head football coach Randall Zimmerman knows that the Golden Eagles have talent all across their roster, but especially on the offensive side. "Their quarterback is committed D-1, their center is committed D-1, they've got some really good kids there," Zimmerman said. "Hopefully our kids are ready for it. I think we've had our best week of practice this year, so hopefully that shows up at game-time."

You can listen to the game on 107.9 FM/1420 KJCK. The pregame broadcast starts at 6:30 p.m. with kickoff at 7:00.
