TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A Shawnee County commissioner who’s backed Topeka’s junior hockey team is calling for more fan support amid falling attendance.

The Topeka Capital-Journal (https://bit.ly/1OC0NSD) reports that Kevin Cook is among the commissioners who voted this summer to adopt a lease agreement keeping the RoadRunners in Topeka through at least the end of the 2017-18 season. But he said he was disappointed with the attendance when he attended the Sept. 11 home opener at the Kansas Expocentre’s Landon Arena.

He says now is the chance for people who said they would support hockey to do so. Two previous Topeka hockey teams have failed.

The Expocentre’s management company says attendance was down about 40 percent during the RoadRunners’ first four games this season, compared to the average for all of last season.
