— Tonganoxie High sophomore Jeremy Carlisle found the end zone when the Chieftains had to have a score — twice — and THS won at Piper, 29-26, on Friday night.

The first Carlisle score came less than three minutes into the district contest. The Pirates (1-7 overall, 0-2 district) had just marched down the field in seven plays to take an early 6-0 lead when Carlisle returned a kickoff 80 yards for a touchdown, his fourth TD-return of the season.

THS (5-3, 1-1) again trailed in the fourth quarter when Carlisle capped a six-play drive with a six-yard run that put Tonganoxie up for good.

Chieftains junior running back Austen Holloway (18 carries, 107 yards) had a nine-yard touchdown run in the first quarter, and junior back Jeremie Maus had Tonganoxie’s next TD, a two-yard run, in the second quarter.

Tonganoxie will play host to Bishop Ward on Thursday for its district and regular-season finale.
