Topeka Thunder LOGO

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Ready for some football?  What if going to a semi-pro game would help families recovering from the Harveyville tornado?  The Topeka Thunder will play the West Central Warriors of Belton, Missouri this Sunday afternoon in a benefit for Harveyville. The northeastern Kansas town sustained extensive damage and one death when it was hit February 28th by an EF-2 tornado.  The Thunder and the Warriors play in the Central Plains Football League. The semi-pro association has more than a dozen eight-man teams throughout Kansas and Missouri that play a high-scoring, arena-style of game outdoors.  Sunday's game will be played at the SportZone complex at 3909 Southwest Burlingame in Topeka. Donations of money, food, clothing and other items will be accepted for admission.
