Klinsmann digs LSP, Lions And Firebirds Wrap Up Regular Season

Here are your Monday headlines from Lawrence and the KC Metro area:


  • United States manager Jurgen Klinsmann funneled his thoughts on Livestrong Sporting Park into one word: Fantastic. Klinsmann and the U.S. national team have been in town for several days ahead of their crucial August 16 World Cup Qualifier against Guatemala. Several news outlets have speculated that, if the weekend goes logistically well, the U.S. Soccer Federation could move future qualifiers from Crew Stadium in Columbus, Ohio.
  • A mid-range free kick from Lawrence High senior Justin Riley lifted the Lions over the Lawrence Free State Firebirds in this year’s cross-city rivalry game. The game proved testy as tensions boiled over for both teams, but almost as a symbol of the year’s successes, the Lions notched another win ahead of the state playoffs.
