Hayden halts THS season with 1-0 overtime heartbreaker

October 29, 2003

In many a soccer games, scoring is limited to just one goal.

That was the case Tuesday for Tonganoxie.

Unfortunately for the Chieftains, that goal came with 3:46 left in the second overtime against Hayden in the first round of the Class 4-1A regionals.

The teams went scoreless through two halves and an extra period, but in the second overtime, the Wildcats found the goal on their home field in Topeka and eliminated THS from the playoffs.

Under first-year coach Luke Denney, the Chieftains completed the season 7-9-1.

Last year, THS went 6-11-1 after losing in the second round of regionals.
