Friday night, Hickman ended that hope before the playoffs even began as the Kewpies advanced to the Class 6 playoffs with a shocking 16-14 victory.

Hickman (5-5) set the tone for the game in the first two minutes.

That was the story of the night. Jefferson City (8-2) lost four fumbles and never established an offensive rhythm.
